Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor release new album ‘Lavender Blood’

Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor

Sisters of Your Sunshine VaporDetroit psych-rockers, Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor, highlight the juxtaposition of horror and bliss with their new record, ‘Lavender Blood’.  One part warm and comforting, the other part heavy and chaotic; the band delivers a psychedelic odyssey worth multiple listens. Check out the premeire via Spill Magazine.

After they almost died while flying back from their first European tour, members of Detroit trio Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor got off the plane feeling weirdly transcendent. Terrifying as the flight might have been, it led to the creation of some of the most sublime, hypnotic and spacey music of the band’s career.

Written and recorded shortly after that fateful flight, Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor’s new full length, ‘Lavender Blood,’ feeds on that emotion to deliver a confounding blend of blissfulness and terror. ‘Lavender Blood’ is SOYSV’s fourth release marking a slight departure from its conceptual predecessor, ‘Desert Brain’. The new album was recorded in a remote lodge nestled in the woods of northern Michigan where the band could escape back into that mindset that initially inspired the record. The trio took advantage of the building’s large cathedral ceiling and open floor plan to craft their fullest and most honest sounding album to date.
