Vanishing Twin is a psychedelic infused art pop band that pulls from quite a variety of sources and meld them into a distinct sound that is not easily categorizable. They are experimental without being transgressive. There is a layer of krautrock, for sure, as well as the kind of jazz one would expect to hear at a smoky night club where beat poetry readings are held. Plus, a psychedelic component that ties in with the misty and slinky nature of their songs. They tap in to the same finger snapping cool that bands like Stereolab have in the past. Members of the band are all musicians who had already established themselves previously either as sides people or as members of some other well-known, though off-mainstream groups. They are led by singer Cathy Lucas, whose whispery vocals often brings Broadcast's Trish Keenan to mind.
