Bio

Perth three-piece Dead Sea summon the fuzz-laden joy of grunge and give it new life. Searingly intense and catchy, their debut EP Self Aware is both ferocious and intelligent – a caustic bliss of riffs, hooks and rhythms – expounded by the irresistibly sombre first single Antimatter.

Like all good trios, Floyd Winter, Sam Forward and James Langlands make more out of less; a solid sound that feels lacking in nothing. Wielding incendiary tone and anthemic songwriting, at the heart of every Dead Sea chorus is a melody strong enough to survive a hurricane of guitars unscathed.

Produced by Brody Simpson and Mark McEwen at Underground Studios, Antimatter is the kind of song that gives you goosebumps – from its soaring vocals to the sheer inferno of guitar, bass and drums around them. With each listen, it works deeper into your soul. A near-perfect slice of alternative rock, Antimatter is the quintessential introduction to Dead Sea.

"...The grungiest sound I’ve heard in these parts since the 90s, however when a heavy dose is required the lads buckle down with a mix of fuzz and distortion..." - Wall Of Sound

"...showcasing a grunge-y, alt-rock display that feels like they've taken notes from that classic, late-90s sound and brought it forward into 2019 - a difficult feat to achieve..." - Pilerats

Good band! I like 'Antimatter' maybe a smidge more than I like this one but I really like you overall.
