THE DEAD SOUND

Cuts" is the aptly named debut-outing of the German post-punk band The Dead Sound, which was started by Karl Brausch (Love A) in 2016. This album transforms our common metaphysical elopement into a dynamic journey, set to the popular tones of 80s post-punk and synth pop.

Over a period of two years the guitarist and singer wrote 9 killer tunes, influenced by noisy post-punk acts like A Place to Bury Strangers and The Jesus and Mary Chain, albeit with a pop-sensibility of 80s synth pop bands. Recording the “Cuts” all by himself at his home in Trier/Germany, the creation of this album was a way of escaping the negative aspects of daily life for the songwriter.

"Into the dark” is insanely catchy with a powerful albeit simplistic chorus that will root itself deep into your brain on the first listen. The instruments are vibrant and spacey, creating an ambiance-laden backdrop for the soft vocals of Karl Brausch to ease you through the song. The near-constant pulse of the music over his cathartic delivery is a really great pairing of elements, all drenched together in endless distortion." Everythig Is Noise
