Scarlett's Fall is a duo formed in 2014 by Ruth Childs (British-American performance artist and singer based in Geneva) and Stéphane Vecchione (Swiss performance artist and musician based in Lausanne). They define themselves as dirty-girlie-kitchen-pop, mixing catchy melodies and repetitive looping with fragile vocals and provocative texts. Out of their playfully ironic and poetic universe you can hear shades of Can, Broadcast, and Young Marble Giants. Scarlett's Scared is Scarlett's Fall's ironically seductive second album. It all started with a (blue) demonstration vinyl entitled The Incredible Sounds Of Synclavier II, released by New England Digital Corp in 1981, to promote the first digital sampling system. Its content gave the basic atmosphere for the whole album: each of the ten tracks samples a specific Synclavier sound. Add haunting melodies, mysterious vocals, and fun beats and you get Scarlett's Scared complete. As the title suggests, Scarlett's Scared is about being scared and takes its roots from vintage movies, such as Klute (1971) and Metti, Una Sera A Cena (1969), that deal with phone stalkers, insomnia, sexual tension, vampires, ghosts, and explosive watermelon attacks.
