Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words is the specter that haunts Thomas Ekelund. But it is a ghost by which Ekelund performs sonic exorcism, unleashing his bleak and twisted vision into the material world. Culling found sounds from his habitat, twisting in inspiration from 60’s girl groups, and molding it together with the last gasps of vinyl noise, Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words gives birth to what one might name concrete drone pop.

While it might not be »musical«, the sound is emotionally charged. From bleak to bleaker, grimy sounds emanate from the sewer, while rays of hope sneak through the broken glass, reflecting on the blood stained shards on the street above.

Ekelund has released music under various guises since 1999, including normal music and dead violets, (with J. Surak) Dead+Hurt and WNQST//LNDGRN (with J. Lindgren), Infini (with J. Gustavsson and J. Lindgren), Winquist/Virtanen (together with R. Abrehamsson) and many many more ranging from pure noise to shoegazing guitar ambient.

Ekelund resides in Gothenburg, Sweden.
