Swedish upstarts Dead Vibrations have released their long-overdue debut album into the world.DeadÂ VibrationsÂ burst onto the booming Stockholm music scene in 2015 and have been flying the flag high for Scandinavian shoegaze ever since. Their dark and gloomy noise pop channelling a mix of visceralÂ Mary Chain-esque guitars, droning psychedelia a laÂ Spacemen 3Â and even Seattle grunge at times â€“ resulting in a reverb-drenched sound that manages to sound both unapologetically indebted to its influences yet completely modern. Having spent the last couple of years touring Europe, bringing their blistering live show to venues and psych fests across the mainland, and releasing just two releases â€“ their debut 12â€ EP â€˜Reflectionsâ€™ and this year's 7â€ single â€˜Swirl/Sleeping In Silver Garden' â€“Â the band have finally released their long-overdue debut album. With crushing fuzzed-out guitars, swirls of feedback, thundering drums and angst-ridden vocals, the record is a masterclass in dark and brooding shoegaze. For such a new band,Â DeadÂ VibrationsÂ have wasted no time making their markÂ and their debut album is sure to send them to even further heights.
