‘show that thoughtful pop can still be groovy as hell’ The Line Of Best Fit
Out 6th October
Deafkid is made up by musician producer duo Christopher Lockington and Florian Sauvaire. Prior to forming Deafkid Chris and Flo worked with experimental hip hop artist Ghostpoet and provided additional production on his Mercury Prize nominated album ‘Peanut Butter Blues And Melancholy Jam’, also forming the live band for subsequent Ghostpoet tours from 2009-2012.
‘Dialects’ sees the band once again blending influences from the worlds of electronica, experimental and pop. The 4-track EP was produced by Kristopher Harris (Bear’s Den, Smoke Fairies, Story Books) and mastered by Matt Coulton (Kanye West, James Blake, Coldplay)
Their debut AA side single ‘Talk’ / ‘Pig’ and its follow-up ‘Vigilante’ both picked up mass critical acclaim, gaining press support in the UK from NME, Clash, DIY Magazine and The Line Of Best Fit, as well as being picked up by Zane Lowe as his Next Hype record.
