Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia
“...I feel as free as Fred Astaire” Upon your first listen to the arousing indie-folk style of Dead Letter Chorus, you too will feel whisked away from the confines of the everyday. Their debut EP ‘Listen Carefully (we shall say this only once)’ is due for release on 7th July through CodeOne/MGM. Recorded over just one rainy day, this EP is both reflective of the bands live dramatic energy and their more intimate, introspective side. The beauty of this raw recording is that all subtleties and inflections are picked up. The result: a strangely captivating recording by a group of artists who are on the cusp of stardom. Dead Letter Chorus ventures outside the boundaries of the typical genres. They find aspiration in the work of artists that challenge themselves and their listeners. If you are seeking influences, begin with early Dylan, Emmylou Harris and Rolling Stones – and move to the more contemporary styles of Ryan Adams and Martha Wainwright. DLCs music slides in and out of many genres whilst maintaining that overall feeling one gains from a brilliant folk artist: Intensely personal, yet reaching to universal issues and emotions. Dead Letter Chorus fill a void in the Australian music scene that is at times too caught up in image and hype. The honesty and prose contained within each song fascinates and engages individual listeners. The musicianship of Dead Letter Chorus imparts a haunting primitive beauty which can only be created by artists who truly enjoy their music and style. Featuring prominent players from established Sydney bands, Midnight Swim and Days like Stars, they have already supported the likes of The Vasco Era, Joel Plaskett (Canada) and Bertie Blackman. Whether you love the live energy of performance or easy listening within the confines of your room, it cannot be denied that Dead Letter Chorus is already making their mark within the music industry.
