Bio

Honey vocals, dreamy synth and vibrant guitar riffs are fast becoming the signature of indie four-piece Death by Denim.

Formed in Perth in 2016, the band is made up of close friends, Palle Mazzulla, Nikolas Ilidias, George Gunson and Hamish Macarthur.

Breakout single ‘Wiggy’ made waves in 2019; a sensory escapade that saw the band hit number 3 on the triple j most played charts and ink a global management deal with Lemon Tree Music. Three national tours and a heap of sold out shows later, the band returned to WA to record their debut album, ‘Sleepless and Sunkissed’.

Album singles ‘Homemade’, ‘Out of Habit’ and ‘Caged’ were all added to high rotation on triple j and the band made the top 50 of both the triple j and triple j Unearthed most played artists of 2020. In the same year, Death by Denim signed to Paradigm Talent Agency under Tom Taaffe (UK/Europe) and Rob Zifarelli (North America). The band were then selected to be a part of the BIGSOUND50 and showcased at SXSW’s first digital festival.

2021 sees Death by Denim selling out their national tour for ‘Sleepless and Sunkissed’ and hitting 1 million streams each for hit tracks ‘Wiggy’ and ‘Cigarettes and Honey’. This June they release emotional new single ‘Small World’ from their hotly anticipated sophomore album.

it's a spacey, colourful gem which is to be expected, but there's also a restraint and a touch of 70s soft rock in there too. i'm expecting to see some sharp, oversized suits and camp collar shirts next time i see you live.

This band doesn't slow down! After dropping their first record in 2020 they're already giving us new music. We're not worthy! I love how they're embracing their melodic and proggy side more and more here while it still feels like a big DBD sing-along.
