The Deadly Deaths- Debut Album
24 Jun 2007 // A review by johnsoncraigsbc
Although the name doesn’t suggest it, The Deadly Deaths debut album is soothing and articulate, like a pre planned walk in the park with a close friend or relative. I find myself subconsciously listening to this album, but moments like the whaling guitar in ‘Deadline’ really capture your attention.
It’s a nice surprise, like a gold coin under your pillow, to hear a man so in control of a synth line without making a video game out of it. The guitars compliment the synths so much so I was in question to whether they played guitar at all, but it was so.
The Deadly Deaths are like a pair of pants from an opshop that fit properly. They are rare, and you had to search for them, but when you found them you were pretty happy.
‘Salty’ is my favourite because it develops its depth until the end without it becoming a prog rock piece, and the synth at the end is killer.
A debut album with this much depth to it means these guys are a pretty exciting prospect for the future. Deadly.
