Premiere: Death by Denim go psych-rock on Plane From Amsterdam
The Perth favourites arrive with their second single for the year, with tour dates across the next few months.
Perth local legends Death by Denim have become one of favourites over the last few years, with a steady rise since their early 2016 movements defining them as a band on the edge - if not currently experiencing - a full national break-out. They've become one of the most consistent names on the west coast in the time since, with a steady run of singles forcing them into the spotlight with moves simply unignorable, like the Pilerats-premiered Cigarettes And Honey a few months back. It was a breezy, Arctic Monkeys-reminiscent return from a band that seems to transform with every release; moving from style to style as they evolve and grow as a band bound for big things.
Today, they move on with the next single, Plane From Amsterdam, and it's one that reinforces that tall-standing versatility the band consistently display. While Cigarettes And Honey was built on sun-soaked melodies and vocals that cut right through, Plane From Amsterdam is more built upon traditional Perth psychedelic-rock, with hazy, thickly-layered guitar melodies meeting their striking vocal which once again, is able to cut through the madness to create something special. Billed as a "free-falling anthem of self-reflection and discovery," the single represents a big moment for the band, showing the somewhat obvious comparison in sound to the city-mates Tame Impala as they share the track with a national tour to come. You can find those dates below, with shows across the country scheduled through June and July, but in the meantime, give Plane From Amsterdam a ride:
June 15 - Indian Ocean Hotel, Perth
June 29 - Yah Yah’s, Melbourne
July 5th - The Milk Factory, Brisbane
July 6th - Oxford Art Factory Gallery, Sydney
