Vanishing Breed

Following the success of the seasons four track E.P. released on Static Caravan, the englishman Alexander Holmes aka Vanishing Breed has completed an album of comparable quality and romantic intent entitled Between arrival and departure. Holmes is also known from THEY CAME FROM THE STARS, I SAW THEM and THE LONDON TOY ORCHESTRA.Centred on the theme of modern dislocation, Vanishing Breed has created a collection of contemporary anthems for all international commuters, long distance lovers and ‘foreigners’. Vanishing Breed mixes African Soukous, Maringa, traditional English folk and Electronic Music to create a style he calls ‘New Electric Hi-Life’. The sleeve designer Julia Schonlau takes inspiration from Japanese illustrated character design and European nostalgia.
