Band: DEEP DYED
Who: Bedroom pop quartet from Hamburg, Germany. They use the dazzling
space between catchy independent pop songs and psychedelic rock to enable
their listeners to take a journey into the world of their own dreams and emotion.
Debut album: UNMADE BEDS
TUTV: Actually, I can describe this debut in one sentence: 11 captivating, high-quality, guitar-driven indie tunes. But I’ll add my overall impressions in more detail right here. Thematically, Unmade Beds is about emotions many of us have experienced/experience. Love and longing, boredom and panic.
Human mood swings that shift from elation to melancholia, from feeling great to feeling empty. Sonically, the record covers a versatile palette of indie sounds. From dream-pop à la Belle and Sebastian (Memory Starts To Bloom / Since I Can Sleep / Outworm / Laundromat) to amplified jangly pop somewhere between Bully and Alvvys (Rush / Crystal Ball Sensation / Dracula Force) to blues-infused psychedelia (Drowned / City Lights / Dead Crass). The vocals also switch depending on the up/down vibrancy. From moony to high-spirited, from romantic to zestful. A notable debut all the way.
