Following a 2015 which saw the band earn great attention, British alternative rockers Deadset Dream are keeping that same success going on stage and recently through the release of new single Snakes and Ladders. The track is a rousingly infectious slice of melody thick rock ‘n’ roll driven by the warm jangle of guitar aligned with emotively shaped vocals, and very swiftly is very satisfying.
Formed on 2013, Sheffield hailing Deadset Dream has bred and honed their sound into a flavoursome proposition matched in strength by the interest it has sparked. As mentioned earlier, last year was the most potent yet for the quintet of vocalist Shiney Lingwood, guitarists Dan Burridge and Alex Hudson, bassist James Yeaman, and drummer Conor Burridge. Live, the band supported the likes of Funeral for a Friend, Roam, and Autumn Ruin as well as selling out Sheffield’s Corporation towards its end. The release of The Fall, a single taken from Battlecry, the band’s first EP in three years, only added to Deadset Dream’s success with their reputation growing in tandem.
Surging into 2016 with the same live intensity, Deadset Dream gives attention another firm nudge with Snakes and Ladders. The single initially caresses ears with a guitar jangle before Lingwood counts down to an immediately catchy and evocative flow of riffs and melodies around his following plaintive vocals. With rhythms framing all with their own infectious drama, the track croons and rumbles as it sweeps ears up in its anthemically toned adventure.
There is a feel of Mallory Knox and Bring Me The Horizon to the song, open hues which add to an overall roar which fires up the appetite for the Deadset Dream sound. Produced by James Pinder of Treehouse Studios, who lists the likes of Bullet For My Valentine and Fightstar on his CV, Snakes and Ladders suggests this year is more than capable of matching the last in the ascent of Deadset Dream.
Snakes and Ladders is out now with Deadset Dream playing the Kaya Festival in Wales August 7th.
