Bio

New Adelaide based female fronted dream pop outfit Dean Forever have a modern sound mixed with an era you can’t place. With backgrounds in jazz and inspiration stemming from their love of various contemporary styles, Jakub and Kiah deliver their debut album as a synth-laden collection of songs with full driving rhythms, understatedly sophisticated harmony and lyrically heartfelt vocals.

Having just returned from touring their debut record as a 4 piece, they hit the road again as they head to BIGSOUND 18 with their full 6 piece band.

Really gorgeous four and a bit minutes of DF exhaling some old school pop sensibilities.

Love the way these wild keyboard melodies spiral and soar out of control while Kiah's voice brings everything back to earth

Relieved that 'Reverse' wasn't a fluke. I'm going to check the whole album out now.
