They’re awash with the depth and danger of maritime nightmares. They’re the place where coruscating noise meets haunting pop melody and brutal lyrical honesty. They’re Sonic Youth, Pavement, The Strokes and Echo And The Bunnymen eating each other on a raft adrift in the Arctic Ocean.
They’re Death At Sea, the best band to emerge from a vapid Liverpool scene in decades. And they’ve come to give rock the kiss of life.
Death At Sea released their debut limited edition 7” AA-side single ‘Drag’ / ‘Selfless’ through Kissability / Transgressive. The band recorded the tracks in their living room, working on “the most broken, run-down set-up ever. Broken headphones, broken microphones, no money… we had to tie things together for them to work, literally with school ties”, the band came up with their first clutch of classic tunes almost immediately. Future hit ‘Drag’ – “When he’s with her, she bleeds glitter” – is a sexy and seditious slab of misanthropic glam grunge.
The band are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut long player.
Death At Sea are Ralph, Sam, Rory and Simon. The band will be touring this year in support of their forthcoming album.
Like the biggest oceanic predators, Death At Sea will keep moving or die. Get devoured.
