Deadletter

Deadletter

Loads of great new music coming out of Yorkshire at the moment. Exhibit B, Deadletter.

They share the inclusion of particularly tall guitar players with another well known Yorkshire band, who we might call Exhibit A.

All over 6 music as we type, Deadletter produce extremely well crafted tunes that are knowingly hookie both musically and lyrically. In my notes I've written down one tune harks back to Pink's Get This Party Started, but for the life of me I now can't find which track it was. Anyway, a pop sensibility albeit on the darker side...

Watch a couple of their videos and one is struck by singer Zacs likeness to Mick Zagger. Something about the hair perhaps but certainly the same level of commitment to the performance.

They are the zeitgeist with a song called, The Zeitgeist. Is that allowed? Some talk of a Talking Heads influence in their music.

We think their set at Deer Shed will be intense and explosive at the same time, if such a thing can be possible.
