The Dead Love are a known quantity in their home country of Australia but they’ve been making impressions in Canada recently especially on yours truly. Their live performance is top notch and the latest record ‘So Whatever’ is packed with songs that key on the best of 90’s grunge but also gives it new meaning and energy. It’s a record that takes you on a journey with some aggressive riffs and also some wonderfully soft moments.
‘Wastelands’ and ‘Summer’ are melodic standouts while I defy you to resist the song ‘Down’ which clocks in at under 2-mins and leaves you wanting more. Other standouts include the title track ‘So Whatever’ and ‘Untitled By Association’.
There are still bands fighting the good fight for rock music and this is one of them.
