Ded Rabbit are back with a double A-side single Only Dating / Never Gonna Learn, which is out on March 25th 2016 via Ded Rabbit Records.
Written after watching ‘The Imitation Game’, the band wanted to capture something edgy yet fun. Only Dating is explosive, update and catchy as hell. In keeping with their undeniably British sound, the track serves as a masterclass in indie pop, which fans of Catfish & the Bottlemen and Little Comets will appreciate. Ded Rabbit will also be releasing Never Gonna Learn – a more personal track about the different issues that people face in life but still evoking that upbeat and irresistibly catchy sound.
Ded Rabbit are brothers Eugene (vocals, rhythm guitar), Fergus (lead guitar), Donal (bass) and Eoin Gaine(drums). Originally from Yorkshire, they relocated to the Highlands in 1996 and through their isolation and love of music, they began playing together ten years ago. After moving to Edinburgh to study, Ded Rabbit started working in the studio where they recorded their last three EPs and where the brotherly unit found their recent partnership with Rocket Science Studios (Texas, Belle And Sebastian and Dougie MacLean).
Since the release of their third EP Moving In Slow Motion, the boys have been working the festival circuit and touring the UK – one particular highlight being headlining the T Break stage at T In The Park last year as well as receiving a SAMA nomination for ‘Best Live Act’. Ded Rabbit have already received praise from BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway and various publications including Gigwise,Record of The Day and The Skinny amongst others. Their previous single Better On The Day reached number 3 in the Spotify UK Viral Chart and The Vodafone Big Top 40 also included it in their ‘5 future hits you might not know about but really should!’ list. Both Only Dating and Never Gonna Learn are also currently featured on the Topman playlist in all UK stores. 2016 sees the band make a welcome return once more as they take their infectious indie pop to new heights.
