Vanishing Twin ‘Pensiero Magico’

Fire Films presents the first in a series of special live streams, inaugurated with Vanishing Twin, who'll be bringing you Pensiero Magico (Magical Thinking), a one-hour musical performance in an improbable world of quixotic sound.


Fire Films announces the first in our ‘Baptism Of Fire’ series of live streams for 2021, beginning with the transcendent psychedelic pop of Vanishing Twin and brought to you via Noonchorus on 20th January.

Vanishing Twin present ‘Pensiero Magico’ (Magical Thinking), a surreal document of their live show, augmented for 2D in a one-hour live performance special. Vanishing Twin will explore all sides of its schizophrenic self, from hypnagogic jazz to quixotic squidge pop to peeling electronic thunder, all set in multiple monochromatic worlds.

Viewers will have access to exclusive merchandise designed by the band for the event including screen-printed hoodies and t-shirts and will also be entered into a raffle to win one of two dubplates created for the performance.

“This is a band that fearlessly floats in the hazy space between the real world and an imagined one, blurring the line between warmly nostalgic and eerily haunted” Pitchfork

Vanishing Twin ‘Pensiero Magico’ live show 20th January 12pm PT/3pm/ET/8pm GMT
