DEATH AT SEA 0930 BNW edit

Preaching from the Pews: Death at Sea

You can keep Yuck! Tribes can move aside because Liverpool five piece Death At Sea are invading their noisy punk-pop territory with real vim and vigour! Their debut limited edition 7” AA-side single ‘Drag’ / ‘Selfless’ out next week on 22nd October through Kissability / Transgressive. Depicts a band at home in their skins, as they effortlessly produce keening melodies riding waves of gloriously hi-fi cartwheeling fuzz pop redolent of Husker Duand early Ash. Indeed ‘Drag’ is all swaggering guitars and lip curling melodies(‘When he’s with her she bleeds glitter’) fizzy rhythms it makes deadweight heartbreak and low self esteem sound positively electric! The frenectic ‘Selfless’ speeds past in a mess of arms and limbs like an early Cribs cut at it’s heart almost 60s-like woos and rumble pop let’s itself off the leash in hedonistic dance of abandon and brutal honesty: it’s the head rushing soundtrack to a night out where anything feels possible!

Death At Sea are Ralph Kinsella, Sam Peterson, Ruaidhri Owens and brothers Carl and Neale Davies. The band will be touring their first UK tour this autumn which includes support dates with Haim.
