Bad Vibrations and Pop Noir Records Present: A Dead Forest Index EP Launch
A Dead Forest Index EP Launch supported by Ectiopia, Taigen Kawabe and Savages DJ set
"A DEAD FOREST INDEX are Adam Sherry (voice, guitar) and Sam Sherry (drums, voice) from Auckland, New Zealand, currently living in London.
Early on, brothers Adam and Sam Sherry developed a passion for Romanian band Taraf De Haidouks. After the death of violinist and leader Nicolai Nescu, Adam traveled across Europe to follow the band. Inspired by their emotional and esoteric music, he and Sam formed minimalist duo A Dead Forest Index during a period of living in Melbourne.
Citing travel as a unique influence on their work, the music of A Dead Forest Index is centered around the voice : androgynous, lyrical, with a singularity between Scott Walker and Nico. Always leaving room for silence, they write possessing songs with a percussive deliberation and depth, reminiscent of Michael Gira from Swans, looking back towards a past, beautiful and lost, like the imagery of distant shores of New Zealand they left behind.
After a series of shows supporting Savages in the UK, Europe and Australia, Pop Noire couple Jehnny Beth (lead singer of Savages) and producer Johnny Hostile fell in love with their music and decided to make 'Cast Of Lines' the third official release on their independent label Pop Noire records. "
Their new EP 'Cast Of Lines' is out June 2nd.
