Dead Lights presents modern EBM moulded into catchy songs with surgical precision. Bass-heavy, buzzing magnetism with pummeling, yet groovy, mechanical rhythms. All this delivered with an ’80s UK synth-pop, glamgoth flair and an urgency that is tangible.
The 11 songs on ‘Glitterspit’ are filled with monumental synth bass lines and gritty sounds, elaborate vocal arrangements and brutal, industrial dance beats for the dance floor, your headphones as well as your living room. Lyrically, Dead Lights are delving into the darker side of the human condition, skewering life in the social media age with a savage wit and poetic flair. Prepare for songs of loss, lust, drugs and death.
Founded in 2020, the international duo (UK and NL) immediately found themselves separated by the sea and a pandemic. Connected through a lust for dark electronic dance music, Saul and Richard still managed to make an impact with their output. Two years later they were finally able to meet in person and present their songs on stage. After their live premiere at Wave-Gotik-Treffen in 2022, they already toured in Germany and the UK (with Zanias), and Front Line Assembly (EU), while more concerts and festival shows are in the pipeline.
“Their music happily eschews obvious labels, taking notes from the likes of glam, goth and industrial to create something that’s truly their own, filled with booming vocals and beats and gritty synth sounds.” NOTION magazine (UK)
‘Glitterspit’ showcases Dead Lights’ visceral and sleazy hybrid of hard hitting dance beats, monumental synth bass lines and catchy vocals. The international duo offers high energy, dark electronic songs with killer grooves, dark industrial popsongs destined to fill dance floors in a dystopian world.
