Experimental, cinematic post-gazers ‘deardarkhead’ formed in Atlantic City, New Jersey, back in 1988. The band have released five recordings on their own label ‘Fertile Crescent Records’ & have just released the sensational ‘Strange Weather’, their latest 6 track instrumental, via the wonderful ‘Saint Marie Records’ back on March 25th 2016. They have also just released a stunning new video to accompany their latest single release entitled ‘Ice Age’ lifted from the aforementioned ‘Strange Weather’.
‘Ice Age’ purrs as it shifts through its sonic gears all the while pushing those swirling crisp guitar lines to new heights. It soars on wave after wave of glistening sonic frequencies as those thundering drums carefully keep one hand firmly stuck to the earth.
‘deardarkhead’ consists of Kevin Harrington on Guitars, Robert Weiss – Drums & bassist Kevin McCauley, who came on board in late 2010 after the departure of longtime singer/bassist Michael Amper! Influenced by Cocteau Twins, The Cure, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Chameleons, Joy Division, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Church, The Psychedelic Furs & The Beatles, to name but a few, the overall ‘deardarkhead’ sound can be described as a stunning mixture of old school melodic post-punk, intrinsically intertwined with driving moody psychedelic shoegaze & edged with a beautiful euphoric dream pop swirl.
‘Strange Weather’ is available to buy/download right now via Saint Marie Records: saintmarierecords.bandcamp.com/album/strange-weather
