Australian duo DZ Deathrays are pleased to reveal the video to current single, ‘Less Out of Sync’ – featuring two evil whippersnappers embarking on a hellish runaway birthday.
Due out on August 18, coinciding with the album release, ‘Less Out of Sync’ is the final track to be revealed in the build up to their eagerly-awaited new record, and continues to expand the duo’s ever-evolving sound palette.
Like it’s predecessor (‘Reflective Skull’), ‘Less Out of Sync’ is a more forward-thinking, dynamic approach from the pair that still manages to keep their roots firmly in place, whilst lurching forward into a gut-wrenching, spiralling and full-on visceral assault.
After signing with I Oh You in Australia and touring for the past few years with acts like Foo Fighters, Ratatat, Sleigh Bells and at festivals such as Reading & Leeds and The Great Escape, Black Rat was recorded over the course of 6 weeks, which took in 16hr days, at The Grove studio in Australia with producer Burke Reid (MSTRKRFT, The Drones, The Mess Hall) – and shows a truly amazing progression, whilst remaining true to their signature self, from their debut Bloodstreams.
Known for their ability to nurture, break and release some of the finest alternative artists, including alt-J, These New Puritans, Local Natives and the recently lauded Drenge; Infectious will release DZ Deathrays’ Black Rat in the UK/EU on the 18th August 2014 on Infectious Music.
