I OH YOU - IOU348
After a four-year gap between releases, DZ Deathrays imposing third album - 2018's Bloody Lovely - saw the Brisbane duo of Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley's shredding rock maelstrom reach audiences they'd only ever dreamed of. It lead to critical acclaim, a Top 4 ARIA Chart debut, huge tours, headlining festival slots, and playing the biggest venues of their career.
Following Bloody Lovely's demanding touring schedule - and now with third member Lachlan Ewbank along for the ride full-time - DZ Deathrays found themselves with more song ideas than they'd ever had. The addition of Lachlan as a full-time member of the band meant a new set of ears to bounce ideas off, and a new set of riffs to dig into.
So doing things the way they had before, wellÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ that wasn't big enough. Not challenging enough. Not out of their comfort zone enough. So they did what every band worth their salt and wanting to change things up does: go record the first half of a double-album opus in LA with Miro Mackie (St. Vincent, Cold War Kids, Hatchie, WAAX).
Positive Rising Pt 1 bucks and heaves with disparate, heady atmospheres and avalanching instrumentation that pushes the DZ Deathrays into corners they've never visited. What's on offer is a DZ Deathrays that swings quickly from leaner and meaner, to blown-out and expansive - and sometimes downright weirder - while still packing enough punches to be destined to soundtrack flying bodies in mosh pits the world over.
