Super White Assassin announce “Dark Teenage Fantasy” EP

Rel 6th February 2012 on Hacienda Records
Rel 20th February 2012 on iTunes etc

Formed just twelve months ago and brought to Hacienda Records’ attention after a chance meeting with Peter Hook, the double act comprises lead singer, the mysterious and elegant oriental beauty, Tuey, with the poise of an ‘Anime Empress’ straight from the pages of Manga whilst Argentinan born producer DieGodzilla disingenuously portrays himself as a synths/sampling geek with a passion for oldschool synths, drum machines, effects and sci-fi touches.

Creating atmospheric sensual and haunting 21st Century pop SWA’s delicate, graceful production belies some more deadly and direct undercurrents, especially in Tuey’s well appointed, and astutely composed lyrics which contribute to the sense of warped, epic beauty on what is a worldly and self assured EP. It’s got shades of shades
of malevolence that recalls the best of Talking Heads, Cocteau Twin,
Goldfrapp, Boards Of Canada and Bjork… deeply satisfying.

Track Listing:

1) Russian Doll
2) White Noise
3) Jupiter Storm
4) Out In The Snow

Opening up “Dark Teenage Fantasy” with the accessible, breezy, bass driven funk of “Russian Doll” ”“ “with skin like alabaster, the world is spinning faster” ”“ whose playful keys, drops and sussed nonchalance show the duo at their most accessible while second track the dramatic, sweeping “White Noise” combines a sumptuous, floating laid back vibe with a stark and spectacular menace.

Super White Assassin ‘Jupiter Storm’

Live dates are to be announced shortly.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
