‘VanillaCola’ is the latest 3-track EP from Turin-Based experimental-pop duo Niagara – artists/producers Davide Tomat and Gabriele Ottino – which comes with remixes by Austrian avant-garde master Christian Fennesz, as well as XIII.
The dynamically engaging and conceptual tune is released via Monotreme Records on July 31st.
Speaking about the track Ottino, told The 405: “Vanillacola is a list of words that apparently don’t mean anything, they just suggest a meaningless landscape. This landscape gains meaning when the words are followed by actions (verbs). The cold lonely words warm up by taking place in the experience of a human being: the smiles you’ll break / a friend you’ve lost / the blue ¬ you’re in / the sky ¬ you’ve seen.
The music in a way follows the same flow, starting from a minimal harmony note and gradually transforming into a rich one. In the beginning and in the end there is an arpeggiator made of voices that sound like a multitude of people – a multitude of experiences and feelings, but you can’t get what they are saying because they’re too many. In the chorus of the song there is a kind of ‘conscience voice’ saying that what you are seeing is all wrong and you have got to go deeper and watch things from other points of view.”
