Oblique pop ensemble Vanishing Twin formed in 2015 over a love of unusual instruments, freaky records and the irresistible seduction of A Good Groove. Founder Cathy Lucas, after releasing a string of conceptual cassettes on her own RAM* label under the name Orlando, put a band together and named it after her Vanishing Twin, a sister absorbed in utero, when they were both still a cluster of cells. She is joined by drummer Valentina Magaletti (Tomaga, Shit and Shine, Raime, Neon Neon), bassist Susumu Mukai (A.K.A. primitive electronic producer Zongamin), library music head Phil M.F.U. (Man From Uranus) on strange sounds, and film-maker and visual artist Elliott Arndt on flute and percussion.

Last year the band teamed up with producer Malcolm Catto (Heliocentrics, Gas Lamp Killer) and wrapped their songs in layers of otherness and sub-aquatic obscurity. The resulting debut LP will be released on Soundway Recordings in September 2016.
