Dead Social Club
“Let Love Die”
We won’t bore you with anecdotal recitals of how mental our week has been; you know how we do, hopefully. We will say, however, it’s been an incredibly pleasurable experience having met so many cool new people along the way, as well as those that somehow we’ve become friends with in the digital world but have never encountered in the real one. Which of course you may well be entitled to think that’s a bit sad, and in a way it is, but there are only so many hours in the day kids. We’ve gotta sleep eventually, and we fully intend to over the next 48 hours – save for a contradictory DJ stint at tomorrow’s Cherry Cola Crawl in Shoreditch of course. But before we retire, we’ve got to do the needful. Dipping into our ever-growing stockpile of demo submissions that would most likely take longer than our young lives to plough through and feature (we will bloody try anyway), and we pull out a solid-looking number by London’s own Dead Social Club. Already taking radio and live venture by the proverbial balls – 6Music’s Tom Robinson and those handsome devils over at Amazing Radio have already been bigging them up, coupled with main-stage festival ventures in Europe with The Boxer Rebellion – these chaps seem as crafty with their business acumen as they are with their songwriting. It is, of course, always about the music, and in tandem with impressive early accolades such as these comes indie guitar music laden with influences along the lines of Morning Parade and KM-faves New Ivory, and a hard rocking-synthy vibe along the lines of Canterbury. Add to that a vocal remiscent of the bloke from Housemartins and/or The Beautiful South (give us a break on the research, we’re knackered), and hopefully you’ll see why we find this lot so damn interesting. And if you do, get down to our buddies’ Club Fandango‘s shindig when they put these dudes on at The Bull & Gate on 8th October.
