In many folkloric traditions, on a full moon normality is momentarily suspended. Under the “eye of the night” the mind becomes an antenna, and other behaviours and instincts kick in. The new album by Vanishing Twin, Ookii Gekkou (Japanese for Big Moonlight), is the sound of ordinary life under a different set of rules, in a place where it’s always night.

This is a record conceived and created under lockdown – a sort of dream catcher for all the madness of the past year. Each song a spell or an incantation for coping with the oddity and the eeriness of it all.

The music contains no fewer surprises as a result. It explores new ground for the band, incorporating elements of afrofunk, outer jazz and avant-garde, all the while keeping a foot in more traditional pop songwriting.

Hurricanes, organisms, vibes, bells, and percussive rallies all follow, each infiltrated with influences as diverse as Piero Umiliani, Art Ensemble of Chicago and ELO among others. Indeed, even a cursory earful adds to an ever-expanding palette of sound, no mean feat for the newly-trimmed quartet of songwriter, singer and multi- instrumentalist Cathy Lucas, drummer Valentina Magaletti, bassist Susumu Mukai, and synth/guitar player Phil MFU, this reduction resulting in no fewer ideas and even bigger steps. https://vanishingtwinmusic.bandcamp.com/
