Bio

“IS IT A BIRD? IS IT A PLANE? Nope, just a Dead Albatross hanging out in good ol’ Melbourne. If the futuristic mash of electronic and psychedelic rock doesn’t get your juices flowing, then I don’t know what does!” Happy

“Have a listen you wont be disappointed!!” The Music MATTador

Dead Albatross are an eclectic, electronic rock group from Melbourne. Stylistically they range from psychedelia to garage rock to synth-pop, often within the same song.

Originally formed as a recording project between like-minded music nerds, they emerged as a fully-fledged band in 2012 with their debut EP, “Sampler”, a collection of electronic, psychedelic pop songs. They immediately began work on their follow-up with an expanded line-up and a “more refined, but still highly experimental sound”.

“Die Wunderbastards” was released in May 2014 and received radio play on community networks across Australia including FBi Radio, 3RRR and PBS as well as a glowing write-up from Happy.

2015 will see the release of their debut album “May Your Beard Grow Long and Your Music Be Experimental”, a project the group has been working on for two years. The lead single “Help! Help! I Need an Adult!” and accompanying video was released in August.

Their music is available at Bandcamp.

Aw dudes, this is so good! Really sweet song. Mixing could be a little better but so easily fixed. Really awesome track would love to catch a live performance.
