about

Engineered by Death in Vegas man Tim Holmes, Passarella Death Squad's debut album sounds like the intoxicating feeling of breathtaking desire tightly laced with tension for seriously addictive music that slips deeper into your mind with every listen.
Artwork from the much-lauded M/M (Paris)

Vice magazine album review -

“Crepuscular drones and vampish moans from this exotic trio whose debut sets the tone for those S&M soirees you’re always thinking about hosting.”

9 out of 10

IDJ magazine album review -

Passarella Death Squad are not the band to listen to if you fancy an upbeat romp with your mates on a Friday night. Taking their cue from the goth-tronic tendencies of The Knife, this London-based outfit delve deep into the abyss, offering a slow moving dirge of unsettling tension and minimal, mystical atmospherics. It could easily go very wrong indeed but, as it turns out, their debut album is quietly stunning, wrapping Emilie Albisser's pagan lyrics in unobtrusive production and plumes of primordial fog. Echoing Marlene Dietrich, Cocteau Twins, and the criminally underrated Colder, it's a stark uncompromising, remorselessly downbeat work. Look out.

Track Name: Painted Yellow, Painted Black
I have a love of my own,
my salvation,
no place for you.

A rifle in her arms,
like in the movies,
feels so good.

Rise, Rise,
as the sun falls,
they come out.

Out, out,
out of hiding,
colours came alive,
to find you...

Tomorrow is, painted yellow, painted black.

I have the love of the lonely,
the sadness
set fire to the city.

A place falling down,
from heat came cruelty,
felt so good.

Rise, Rise,
as the sun falls,
they come out.

Out, out,
out of hiding,
colours came alive,
to find you...

Tomorrow is, painted yellow, painted black.
Track Name: How Nice It Is
So sweetly,
try shutting your eyes,
memories are,
well, whose to know
my, beautiful low.

Slowly, meeting the end,
sometime, in the sunshine,
falling, slowly under.

Bored, with what I have,
and, patience fading,
something, just had to go.

Oh I wish, it could, be like this,
and more than once, you could see,
I'm on the outside, looking in.

A light in my eyes and I am gone,
the lines run down my life flows red
Track Name: Girls Of Sofia
Across the sea,
such riches,
your wonderful desires,
comes this way.

Over there
you'll lie empty,
the hopes and dreams,
are stripped away.

Night and day,
the sweat of strangers,
the forced addiction,
hurts this way.

Across the skies,
the sun rises,
the burning heat,
come close my sweet.
Track Name: Heatwave
This sweet relief,
A new year every night,
This peaceful scene,
now wash away from me,

Darling, just once more,
heaven, that is here,

I stick my hand in fire,
I work up the streams,
red river take me there,
so hot and sweet,

Darling, just once more,
heaven, that is here,

Speaks so softly,
speaks so softly.
Always and always forever,
Always and always together.

Slow,
slow,
burn.
Track Name: Those are sirens
In black water,
lights burn out,
a stranger right now,
look what Im missing,
maybe I'm misinformed,
maybe I don't know.

Holding on once more,
tired in the daytime,
dirty little thoughts,
year of misery,
entertained me,
showing all the signs.

Spilling out in silence,
sweetness, pouring,
I wanted to know,
so many times,
these feelings inside me,
those are sirens.
Track Name: Andrea
Such a feeling from above
lonesome boys and girls
your all I need.
For the feeling in my hands
rose gardens of grace
O' Lord with me.

Come on people gather round
Come on people gather round
Love me while you can
Love me while you can

Such a feeling way above
Sugar Kane calling
she'll wait for me.
All the feeling in my hands
says the time is now
and forever shall be.

Come on people gather round
Come on people gather round
Love me while you can
Love me while you can
Track Name: Ima
Oh honey pie,
form shadows,
and tell,
tales of the desert,
looks so hot,
these children
moving in the night.

So sorry,
a five letter word,
and,
guilty feelings,
can't come back,
waiting for
a love completely.

Lost my way,
held me down,
I am,
a new beginning,
oh lucky me
when I leave
no one to wave goodbye.

Oh, the poor girl
with no regrets
sweet hearts turn cold
Track Name: The Fascination Of Fire
Deeper and deeper,
like dancing on fire,
a lonely hunter,
of insane emotions,
draws violent weather,
the flights of angels,
to the sunless sea,
hang strips of silver.
And daylight brings,
speed and diamonds.

Clean so clear,
all that is pleasure,
as silk screens spin,
her heart swings,
the black saint slashes,
the visions of love,
to heavenly films,
temperatures rising.
And daylight brings,
speed and diamonds.

Kings and queens,
the girls of the year,
and loads and loads of lovely love.
Track Name: This is for you
Slowly sweet fever
where the poison ran deep
pale flowers are unfolding.
Hope tomorrow never comes.

Ride the silent sea
as waves roll over.

Hearts on the stars
hanging in the night,
my heart sings forever.
For it should never end.

Ride the silent sea
as waves roll over.

Such strange forces
the women with the sun
the shadows of love.
This is for you.
Track Name: Blackout
Here for you,
it lives in me,
to be set free.

As sparks explode,
with delight,
to be set free.

Such sweet pain,
burns inside,
to be set free.

The lights go on,
the lights go off.
