The Dead Fronts debut their video for ‘Killer Bee’ taken from their debut EP Dangerous Impressions out on November 19th
On November 19th, The Dead Fronts release the Dangerous Impressions EP through their own label, Kiossk Records… Recorded in a fortnight, and mixed by Justin Hill at Fortress Studios in late 2012.
The Dead Fronts were brought together by a mutual thirst to create music that blended their eclectic shared taste. Melodic yet heavy, dark and driving songs were their aim. Having stumbled upon an unkempt garage in North London, they decided to build themselves a modest but solid studio. Begging, ‘borrowing’ and kidnapping equipment; they recorded and produced their debut EP Dangerous Impressions themselves. It has certainly proven to quench that initial thirst.
Debut single ‘You and Me’ is a shot to the heart. An infectious hybrid of indie-punk and surf-rock and utterly classic. Alongside Gaz and Jordan’s forlorn, lilting lyrics and their trademark hackle-raising harmonies, Russell’s driving guitar leaps across the dynamic range before a final crescendo into full-spectrum noise. Add to the mix some persistent, cascading drums, a waspy, insistent bass-line and an absolutely viral melody and its clear The Dead Fronts are the real deal – a gang of lads who understand the precocity of modern life and have set it to song. And a startling song it is too.
