Deadletter are a Yorkshire six-piece post-punk band with a bit of a danceable vibe that take inspiration from The Fall, Gang Of Four and Talking Heads who I’m liking the sound of this week.
And they’ve just been announced for two shows in Dublin and Belfast later this year at:
Workman’s Cellar, Dublin – 3rd November 2023
Ulster Sports Club, Belfast – 4th November 2023
Tickets are available from Friday 2nd June at 10am from €16 plus booking fee, on singularartists.ie
I’d start the with the Foals-esque song ‘Binge’ and go from there, there’s lots of quality in this band.
Childhood friends Zac Lawrence (vocals), Alfie Husband (Drums) and George Ullyott (Bass) graduated from busking around Yorkshire town centres in their early teens, and moved down into a shared house in South London – prompting a certain necessity, and allowing them the space to develop their own personal antithesis to the grind of daily life.
After some line-up experimentation, the addition of Will King (Guitar), Sam Jones (Guitar) and Poppy Richler (Saxophone) completed the group. Bound together by a recognition of frenetic energy and rhythm and leaving any wider ideological goal open to interpretation by the listener, Deadletter toured relentlessly throughout 2022, fostering a reputation as one of the most exciting bands in the UK in the process. With support slots including dates with Tropical F**k Storm, Yard Act, and Placebo, they are still clearly not a group to be missed live.
