Following the news of signing to the esteemed label, Infectious Music, Brisbane's Dz Deathrays are proud to reveal their newest single, the bravado infused - Reflective Skull.
Due out on June 9 via Infectious 'Reflective Skull' is the latest track to be taken from the bands forthcoming album,Black Rat, and continues to disclose the duos evolving progression.
Starting with drums that could have sprung from a South London ghetto blaster, 'Reflective Skull' quickly launches into a gut wrenching riff, cathartic half-howls and a rhythm section that both spirals and swaggers - all capped off in just 210 short seconds.
After signing with I Oh You in Australia and touring for the past few years with acts like Foo Fighters, Ratatat, Sleigh Bells and at festivals such as Reading & Leeds and The Great Escape, Black Rat was recorded over the course of 6 weeks, which took in 16hr days, at The Grove studio in Australia with producer Burke Reid (MSTRKRFT, The Drones, The Mess Hall) - and shows a truly amazing progression, whilst remaining true to their signature self, from their debut Bloodstreams.
Known for their ability to nurture, break and release some of the finest alternative artists, including alt-J, These New Puritans, Local Natives and the recently lauded Drenge; Infectious will release DZ Deathrays' Black Rat in the UK/EU on the 18 August 2014.
In the meantime 'Reflective Skull' will be released on June 9 via Infectious Music.
