About

Born from a cramped kitchen conversation, Dead Social Club are a six piece alt-indie band consisting of Steve (keys) Paul (vocals) Joel (guitar) Rich (guitar) and the alliance of rhythm section Nic Gilham (bass) and Nick Gillam (drums).

Gig has followed gig including; headlining the Foals after-party in Brixton, gracing the 2,000 capacity London Scala with Bloc Party DJ’ing, playing Conincx Pop Festival in Holland (with The Boxer Rebellion and The Crookes) and numerous UK summer festivals.

We have attracted multiple airplay on BBC 6 (tracks of the week podcast/national airplay), BBC London, BBC Introducing, Absolute radio (track of the week), Phantom FM and Amazing Radio and in the UK, as well as further afield in Canada and The U.S.

Online, our songs have been used for videos (FHM), been made free download of the week by O’Neil (the massive surf brand not the faux Irish pub chain) and had a track selected by Music Week for their ‘sound of the summer 2012’.

Really? You make us blush…reviews….

“A fantastic track from the London band”
Tom Robinson, BBC6

"Sweet sounding Indie with a Robert Smith inspired singer. There is technical proficiency, indications of an adventurous spirit and songs that are just this side of mainstream. That suggests their potential is substantial"
Simon Li (Universal Music A&R)

"A captivating rock song with some fresh 80s synth beats and a lead vocal which is honest, uplifting and charming. Dead Social Club have nailed a song with a lot of soul that will be perfect for lazy summer days"
Polly James, Absolute Radio on ‘Sunlight’

“There’s a bit of Franz, and there’s The Rakes hanging around the periphery too. Love the keys. Great little indie track, destined for a goal of the month competition montage”
Pete Donaldson, Absolute Radio on ‘Stockholm’

“There’s certainly a vague hint of a less doom laden Depeche Mode in the vocal delivery combined with a dash of 80′s post punk, yet they manage to make it sound fresh and vital with big chorus’s that stay on the right side of epic without ever sounding over blown”
Andy Von Pip, www.vonpipmusicalexpress.wordpress.com, on ‘Stockholm’

Let’s first say, it is refreshing to hear a band so unselfconscious as Dead Social Club. Electronica? Check. Keyboards? Check. A sound that pitches itself somewhere in the interstellar region between Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode and Simple Minds? Closer still. It is pop, and it’s not pop. It’s rock, and it’s not even rock. Guitars don’t seem to matter to DSC as much as good song-writing and nifty fingers at the effects station, though when they come to the fore there are some striking riffs on ‘Syrian Kisses’, particularly on single ‘Let Love Die’.
Essential listening best of 2011

“Let Love Die (the recent single) had the crowd dancing like maniacs as if it were already an indie club classic. The seventh track, Too Young, was my personal favourite – it had the charm of an early Depeche Mode ditty, whilst still feeling like a modern indie summer hit. They played an incredible show, with energy that continued into the night (and next morning).”
Metrotwin.com review of London Scala gig (supporting Bloc Party DJ set)

"An indie belter by Dead Social Club. Stockholm has everything you want in a foot stomping, adrenaline pumping ‘lad’ track - grit, testosterone and swagger. From this description though don’t believe that this band are an ‘Oasis wannabe’. Packed with plenty of originality with the addition of synths and to this guitar heavy track, I can’t wait to hear more from this upcoming band. Forget Viva Brother, Dead Social Club could be the artist Britain has been looking for to bring guitar bands back into the charts"
Liverpool student radio
