Dead Sons are making dirty, heavy, loud noises that seductively weave in and out of sexy yet menacing melodies to create sleazy, desert rock that makes you want to drink a decent whisky, grow a beard and rock out. The Sheffield five-piece have been making waves in the Steel City for a while now and hope their debut album The Hollers and The Hymns will break them into the mainstream. They've already achieved chart success in Turkey, climbing to number 2, and they performed in front of 10,000 people when they supported Arctic Monkeys at Don Valley Bowl last year. I chatted to percussionist Mathew 'Bernie' Byrne from the band before the album's release a few weeks ago for Mixtape.
Dead Sons were also my New Band Up North a couple of weeks ago. Have a read: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/the-northerner/2013/feb/11/dead-sons-band-sheffield
