“Passarella Death Squad create pieces to make people stop, think and then reinvent themselves.” i-D Magazine
Passarella Death Squad are back with an new EP and once again open up a world of brooding, twisted emotion brought to life by their unique sound.
Giant EP commences its twisted journey with French vocalist Emilie Albisser's style beautifully on ‘Blue Lips’ running in parallel across thundering basslines, and clipped layered synth sounds.
Title track ‘Giant’ leads with a Vangelis style combination of fear inducing sounds that entwine in perfect time with Emilie’s ethereal voice, from a future where hope is dwindling.
‘The Stars and Stripes’ is an enigmatic homage to the home of electronic beats - Detroit. Where Drexciya channels ‘Drone’ in a fiercely uplifting mantra to the power of America.
Giant EP ends with ‘Untitled’ which aptly wraps off this musical journey using metallic sounds melded together taking you back to that Beijing smog with huge LED screens and too many people.
