We haven't really said much about Fan Death even though we included them our top 13 of 2008. In fact, it really surprises me since their new single has been in full rotation in our ipods for a good 4 months. Like that wasn't enough, we just received the vinyl of "Veronica's Veil" on the mail thanks to Erol Alkan's online shop of limited edition goodies. But let's talk about this sexy duo that goes by Fan Death. Not only are these two girls like amazingly good looking (not that we care...yes we do) but the single has actually got all the elements that make this a "Nu" Disco anthem. God...I'm really getting sick of caling it nu disco but till someone cleverly renames the genre, we might have to stick to it.
Back to the Band: Fan Death take their name from an old South Korean urban legend where electric fans, if left running overnight in a closed room, can cause death by suffocation. Kinda morbid and a little hot. Also: Girls and religious iconography are so hot i'd might even consider watching the Da Vinci Code. I mean...I love Greek Mythology and all, but Christian mysticism is way hotter!!! And their single named after the Catholic relic (which, according to super Christians, belonged to Veronica from Jerusalem who bumped into Jesus on the way to the Calvary and wiped the sweat from his face, leaving his image printed on her veil) is quite hot too. Hot Music + Hot Girls = a good time (trust me on this one). Music wise, this one is Manifest Destitute Guaranteed!
In any case Veronica's veil is Out now on Phantasy Sounds (out of the UK) with a slick remix by Erol Alkan. Buy Here! or Here!
