Death of Lovers (Whirr, Nothing) “Buried Under a World of Roses” 12”EP out soon
A release date and Pre-ordering info will be announced soon.
Death Of Lovers is a new band featuring current members of Whirr and Nothing, formed from a bond members made while touring together in 2013.
Although Death Of Lovers carries qualities of members previously applauded efforts, they carry a shimmer and fuzz all their own. Dreary vocals, slow motion melody, and plodding percussion swirl together to create a crushingly depressing atmosphere. Kicking up the dust of their prominent influences (Joy Division, The Cure, etc) as they explore the fractured depths the of their uniquely haunting sound. A beautifully addictive introduction to their greatness to come.
01. Cold Heaven
03. Buried Under a World of Roses
04. The Blue of Noon
Along with Loma Prieta, Death of Lovers will be opening for American Nightmare (Give Up The Ghost) on December 12th on Anaheim, CA. The show has already sold out.
