A wave of frustration unravelling on a peaceful beach

I bet you’ve felt that frustration. That knot in your stomach. One that circles around with a certain urgency. Where you can’t even tell whether you’re enjoying it, or whether it is consuming you. But when it slowly melts into an almost warm rush of liberation you find yourself wondering if you’d known, all along, what had caused it in the first place.  

This feeling is that thrilling part of life which serves as an adrenaline fuel to move forward. It feels like a physical push into the dynamics of what life throws at you. I definitely consider this an addictive feeling. People learn to discover their own tunnels in which to channel this urgency. The band Death of Death channels this into music – into a creative output which transmits a ball of rebounding and exhilarating energy via their renowned post-punk sound. 

The band has just released a new single called “Heart Of Gold”. It is an untouched layering of heavy thoughts, heartbeat drums and euphonically welcoming vocals. It takes us into the story of a couple who’ve spent the night together and have to deal with each of their different mind games, emotions and wonderment. “All these inner voices, they can’t quieten down easily throughout the next day. All these kinds of crazy stuff we tell ourselves, assumptions we make and all that.” Vincent Dusk elaborates.

There is a beauty within the scene today. Whether you listen to a local yet passionate band. Or a worldwide famous arena selling band. Music bears the same importance to those who find themselves on the receiving end. Vincent pushes forward to reveal his loud passions. In the sweet knowledge that his music can shift, not only his inner cloudbursts, but the lives of those who’ve humbly come across his sound. “There was this guy in Brazil telling me he was playing the song “Wounds” every single day on his commute to and back from work, multiple times, how the song mattered to him. This stuff always takes me aback”.

They hold an underground sound with the likes of The Cure or The Smashing Pumpkins. Running around the depth of London’s riffing duties, Death Of Death comes to offer more music and what seems like an ongoing rejuvenation of the scene’s crucial rock.
