“… classic Indie sound” – Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland
“An exciting live band that will appeal widely and who are definitely festival-ready” – David Balfour, Record Of The Day
For fans of: Jamie T, Catfish & The Bottlemen, The Wombats
Ded Rabbit announce their third EP of 2015, Moving In Slow Motion, released 15th July via Ded Rabbit Records.
EP track ‘Scarlet Cardigan’ premiered on Gigslutz who described it as “an upbeat offering with shades of Billy Bragg.” You can stream and download the track for free via the band’s SoundCloud page below.
Opening their EP with the aforementioned ‘Scarlet Cardigan’, the band have held nothing back in creating a fast paced and undeniably British sound, but with subtle shades of New York’s underground garage rock scene due to their sheer, unbridled energy. Things take a breather for ‘Step Of Your Shoes’, but don’t be fooled – you’re only a verse away from another burst of intensity, showcasing the band’s ability to toy with the listener’s expectations. EP closer and title track ‘Moving In Slow Motion’ serves as a masterclass in indie pop, with catchy hooks and lyrical tone that could sit well beside the likes of Jamie T and Catfish & The Bottlemen.
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 isolation and a developing love of music, they began playing together ten years ago. After moving to Edinburgh they started taking their music more seriously. They finally found their feet in the studio while working on their last three EPs in Glasgow with Rocket Science Studios, who have recorded the likes of Texas, Belle And Sebastian, and Dougie MacLean to name but a few.
