Sparkle Then Vanish

6.99

In essence, "Sparkle Then Vanish" is a reflexion on the passing time. It was influenced by years I spent in Japan, where I learnt to see beauty in impermanence and imperfection - a trait you will find in the combination of roughness (Glory, Life on a Raft) and intimacy (Stay, Everything Done) in these songs.

On top of bringing direct theme for one of the songs (Entenka), Japan also brought the backbone of the retro sound with a set composed of TR808, Korg Polysix and Boss stompboxes (cf Phasing Out).

Full album (8 tracks). Hi res mp3. Cover art included. All songs by Vii-Pii.

Atmospheric soundscapes leading into brutal guitar frenzy, lots of details and lots of energy. Sparkle Then Vanish is a new milestone in the realm of dark wave music.
