Dead Vibrations burst onto the booming Stockholm music scene in 2015 and have been flying the flag high for Scandinavian shoegaze ever since. Their dark and gloomy noise pop channelling a mix of visceral Mary Chain-esque guitars, droning psychedelia a la Spacemen 3 and even Seattle grunge at times – resulting in a reverb-drenched sound that manages to sound both unapologetically indebted to its influences yet completely modern.
Having spent the last couple of years touring Europe, bringing their blistering live show to venues and psych fests across the mainland, and releasing just two releases – their debut 12” EP ‘Reflections’ and this year’s 7” single ‘Swirl/Sleeping In Silver Garden’ – Dead Vibrations have signed to London imprint Fuzz Club Records for the release of their self-titled debut album. Due for release January 26th, to announce the record the band are sharing the video for lead single ‘Chemical Hug’.
‘Chemical Hug’ gives the perfect insight into what to expect from the record, a brooding piece of dark shoegaze. Crushing fuzzed-out guitars, swirls of feedback, thundering drums and angst-ridden vocals provide the soundtrack to a video of their fun, riotous live-show for which they’ve picked up an ever-growing reputation. For such a new band, Dead Vibrations have wasted no time making their mark and their debut album is sure to send them to even further heights. As Clash Magazine put it: “Dead Vibrations make taut, visceral, black-clad noise rock, with their imposing, intense live show fusing the impact of A Place To Bury Strangers with the innovation of My Bloody Valentine.”
Dead Vibrations is Christian Jansson (Guitar & Vocals), Elmer Hallsby (Bass), Josefin Ahlqvist Lyzwiski (Drums) and Olov Sjogren (Guitar).
