“No Sleep” is pretty simple to explain. It’s guitars, it’s arrogance, it’s the same kind of cool ass riffs you heard in the past set to the lopsided grins and indifference of the future…it’s a kick in the balls. DZ Deathrays are apparently becoming a hot commodity, but this is the first track of theirs that has graced my ears.
I’ll be honest, I’m not sure what to think. My head says “This isn’t the kind of thing you listen to”, but my heart says “These dudes are intense! No sleep til you pass out…and damn it sounds fun!” So I think I’ll follow my heart with this.
For those of you who care about validations from our press overlords, NME says this is the 4th Most Exciting Act of 2012. So, think what you want as I did. This duo will keep kicking in teeth.
The No Sleep EP will be out on March 6th.
