THE DEAD FRONTS were brought together by a mutual thirst to create music that blended their eclectic shared taste. Melodic yet heavy, dark and driving songs were their aim. Having stumbled upon an unkempt garage in North London, they decided to build themselves a modest but solid studio. Begging, ‘borrowing’ and kidnapping equipment; they recorded and produced their debut EP ‘Dangerous Impressions‘ themselves.
The EP certainly embraces and amalgamates various styles and genres: from the proggy inclination of ‘Forward Machine’ through to the grunge driven ‘Fake’ The slow pace and grind of ‘Dangerous Impressions’ and ‘People Talking’ lean further towards indie rock greatness before turning sharply to a post grunge climax, and the darkly anthemic ‘Killer Bee’ ends in a flurry of guitar riffs and tribal rumblings.
Having already garnered support from luminaries such as BBC broadcasters Janice Long, Tom Robinson and Gary Crowley things are looking good for the London based band with distinct Northern connections.
‘Killer Bee’ is their first animated short film to be released from the EP and was directed and produced by Tom Senior.
