VANISHING BREED - BETWEEN ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE (CD)


"Alexander Holmes is a British singer-songwriter who is currently based in Berlin. He's also one of the masterminds of the anarchistic London crew "They Came From The Stars, I Saw Them". His solo project is called VANISHING BREED and it would be rather a shame if someone like him were actually among the species to become extinct. Songwriter, guitarist and poet Alexander Holmes has developed a wonderful and unique style all of his own. Vanishing Breed uses surreal imagery for his lyrics, while his music often tends to have an element of misplacement. A moment of irritation - like a stain on a shirt or a picture that hangs crooked in its frame. What makes the music of Vanishing Breed so particular is the surprise factor, the deliberate out-of-placeness and unexpectedly drastic. Naďve, merry songs tripping over their feet from the abrupt hefty dancehall beat. Rhythmic changes and sudden chaos in the arrangement prevents the listener from getting too comfortable while enjoying the warm-sounding voice and the Africanesque high-life guitar picking."
