Niagara to release new 3-track Vanillacola single in July with Fennesz and XIII remixes
‘Vanillacola Re-Bottled’ is the upcoming release from Turin-Based experimental-pop duo Niagara, released on July 31st. Taken from the band’s vivacious second album ‘Don’t Take it Personally’, ‘Vanillacola’ is a nimble song that quickly shifts between new wave, fizzy pop and slippery footwork, all complemented by sweeping arrangements and booming electronics.
Listen to the track on The 405 website.
“It’s a pulsing, kinetic track, fraught at all times with abrasive mind-cleansing washes of sound, popping with computeroid bubblings, crashing drums and wheeling lances of high-register synth splashing the track with a sense of urgency as the vocals drop lyrics word-by-word” -The 405
‘Vanillacola’ comes with remixes by Austrian avant-garde master Christian Fennesz, as well as Italian producer XIII. Utilising some of the furthest extremities of the remix genre, while incorporating elements of electronica, psychedelia, cold-wave, both remixes expand on the aesthetic of the original and deliver a mesmerising yet brash work-out built on originality and authenticity.
Niagara is the collaborative project of artists/producers David Tomat and Gabriele Ottino. There is always a concept behind their music – this time the ongoing struggle to balance their desire to develop and exploit technology against the need to make technology more sympathetic to nature.
