The New Zealand synth-rock quintet DEAF will be releasing their début and eponymous EP later in the year.
At present there is only one song around (available on bandcamp) which comes from the forthcoming release – TRUANCY.
There is a brooding darkness of overarching melancholia which drifts through the track which is counterbalanced by brightly lit vocal and glistening fret-board rotating around the two synths that holds a reference of retrospective to early Factory Records releases which enables the quintet to deliver a just over four and a half minutes reveal of haunting beauty and I look forward to hearing more in short order.
Those of sharper hearing may recognise the voice of Luke Kavanagh from the drone outfit Sunken Seas.
