hmv.com tips... Deathcrush

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Norwegian trio Deathcrush and their incredible fusion of power-punk and rock...

 

Who Are They?

Deathcrush hail from the Norwegian capital of Oslo, a nation famed for its black metal and epic pop, formed in 2013 and consisting of Vidar Evensen, Linn Nystadnes and Åse Røyset, they're the perfect meeting point between Norway's most famous genres.  

 

Who Do They Sound Like?

This is the noisiest of rock, think vintage Sonic Youth, Swans, Sleater Kinney, but with an icy cool vocal delivery and this intoxicating sensuality to their rhythms. It's the best of so many different worlds. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

Not only are they incredible songwriters and a brilliant live band, but they also title all their songs 'Lesson #', which is bizarre, but also pretty fun. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

You most certainly can. Their latest track/lesson 'Lesson #16 for Beatmaster V / Fun' is below for you and available here in our digital store.
