Big Dead Winter Residency w/ Bark
Every month in winter, Big Dead will be playing one of their favourite little rooms in Brisbane. The group will be drawing from their back catalogue, improvising and showcasing their newest work alongside some of their favourite bands in Brisbane.
This Brisbane five piece bring a kind of world-weary abandon to their particular brand of jazz-infused rock. Big Dead’s music evokes that sombre, heavy-lidded romantic postlude - mementos more sedated slow burn than agitated recollection. At the heart of Big Dead is a take-no-prisoners musical ambition, eager to hurl the listener from chaos through to catharsis. Formed in 2012 in Brisbane Big Dead has released several EPs Eudaemonia, Shell and the upcoming Former Self and their debut LP Bone White Branches through Australian label Art As Catharsis.
“The [band’s] music can’t be unambiguously defined...crafting songs that sound foreign yet somehow feel familiar. In short: absolute, lively and super rich psychedelia meeting melancholic vocals and dream pop compositions” - Lbandzi (PL)
“...I don’t feel as though I have the right words to do Bone White Branches justice. The best way that I can de- scribe it is that it’s sublime.”- Culture Eater (AU)
“As eagerly expected, the album then comes with an impressive longing and melancholy, which draws its energies from a crossover of cinematic jazz and art rock...canvases that have not yet existed in the necessary dimensions” - Betreutes Proggen (DE)
Bark have one foot placed firmly in the tradition of classic 60-70’s pop songwriting, and the other landing in much more modern and experimental territory, BARK. have found themselves distilling a unique blend of the old and the new on debut EP "Chump"
