After they almost died while flying back from their first European tour, members of Detroit trio Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor got off the plane feeling weirdly transcendent.
Terrifying as the flight might have been, it led to the creation of some of the most sublime, hypnotic and spacey music of the band's career.
Forty minutes into their flight from Athens Greece the plane lost cabin pressure, and they needed to make an emergency landing. The plane made this lurching turnaround and suddenly, with masks flailing over seats and flight attendants jostling with visible panic up the aisle. Eventually everything stabilized and a strange calmness came over the cabin. “There was this strong uneasiness; we didn’t know if we were going to land safely or plummet into the ocean.”
Lavender Blood, is at times lo-fi and dreamy and at times hi-fi and heavy. Songs "Die Die Die" and "Rainbow Scarecrow" bring a hard-hitting psychedelic swagger that conjures the driving beats of early Pink Floyd while maintaining the melodic overtones reminiscent of Jim Morrison and The Doors. SOYSV also returns to their Detroit roots with the single, "See You in the Mourning"; a vulnerable song that generously borrows from Motown as it slips into an eerily cheerful send-off accented by thumping bass, jangly backwards guitars and an array of sparkling percussion.
