about

Passarella Death Squad are back with an new EP and once again open up a world of brooding, twisted emotion brought to life by their unique sound.
Giant EP commences its twisted journey with French vocalist Emilie Albisser's style beautifully on ‘Blue Lips’ running in parallel across thundering basslines, and clipped layered synth sounds.
Title track ‘Giant’ leads with a Vangelis style combination of fear inducing sounds that entwine in perfect time with Emilie’s ethereal voice, from a future where hope is dwindling.
‘The Stars and Stripes’ is an enigmatic homage to the home of electronic beats - Detroit. Where Drexciya channels ‘Drone’ in a fiercely uplifting mantra to the power of America.
Giant EP ends with ‘Untitled’ which aptly wraps off this musical journey using metallic sounds melded together taking you back to that Beijing smog with huge LED screens and too many people.

Track Name: The Stars and Stripes
By the dawn’s early light,
through the perilous fight,
Now it catches the gleam
of the morning’s first beam,
And the rockets’ red glare,
the bombs bursting in air

O’ the land of the free,
and the home of the brave,
the land of plenty
the home of the free
When our cause it is just,
In God is our trust.

Whose bright stars and stripes,
through the clouds of the fight,
through the mists of the deep,
the towering steep.
Track Name: Blue Lips
She comes to whisper
guidance for the soul
to the endless names
written on the walls

To the crossing
towards the shore
floating above the city
like kites forever more

Through tunnels of love
through black holes
repeat your rights
and learn to control

To hold you must
open your hand
between blue lips
and across the land
Track Name: Giant
Lord, god of thunder
ran his fingers through her hair
the never ending silence
that's as loud as hell.

For the angels in heaven
still waiting to sing
may they soar above her
on golden wings.

Wheels of time stop turning
things can never be the same again
as the roads to wonderland
come to an end.

"the never ending silence
that's as loud as hell"

For those who've gone before her
for she is their queen.
