After cramming themselves into one of the last standing venues of Cardiff, amongst others bands represented by This Feeling such as Trampolene, North Parade and Local Enemy, Dead! Were definitely the ones with the darker determination of putting on a great gig.
Having travelled all the way from their new home-share in London, the band had upon them to play their brand new single The Golden Age Of Not Even Trying which was delivered delightfully. Along with other much enjoyed singles Enough! Enough! Enough! And You’re So Cheap. All electrifying and energetic after more mellower sets from the lads of North Parade and Local Enemy.
Front man Alex squeezed the microphone as he screamed lyrics of Something More Original and the rest of their band tirelessly treated that with serious sound. They definitely set the stage for Trampolene despite only an approximate thirty minute set, they managed to cram in the songs which made impact and I can assure plenty of people will be turning up to their headline gig just over the road in Clwb iFor Bach in February 2018.
A band who, in contradiction of their single’s title, have tried tremendously for themselves. From printing their own merch to non stop touring for about eighteen months and putting into their upcoming album of January, ‘blood, sweat, arguments, defining moments and some of the best and worst times’ of their lives.
Here at the blog we’re all about enhancing upcoming bands and I cannot urge to you enough to jump on The Golden Age of DEAD! Myself and the blog will be following their footsteps… February awaits.
