Hear DZ Deathrays’ Ebullient New Single ‘Northern Lights’
Aussies share first piece from still-in-the-works 2014 album
DZ Deathrays are planning to hit the studio in December and January to record the bulk of their upcoming sophomore album, due sometime in the first half of 2014. But first, the Australian duo — composed of alt-rock disciples Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley — are offering “Northern Lights,” the lead single from their next full-length. Produced by Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine, the Horrors, Sigur Rós), the first glimpse at the follow-up to last year’s Bloodstreams is a cavernous epic, filled with slabs of guitar and hollering backup vocals. DZ Deathrays may be from Down Under, but they aren’t too off from Fang Island, either.
