First Listen // Deptford Goth

January 8th, 2013 by TJ

Never judge a book by its cover and never judge an artist by their…moniker? Ok, it doesn’t quite work but you get my point. I was all set to hate Deptford Goth based on the recording name, and the album title too come to think of it (‘Life After Defo‘), but whaddyaknow, this is rather marvelous indeed. The album is out on March 18th and after only a couple of listens we’ve been completely sucked in to its subtle and deft surroundings. Daniel Woolhouse’s emotionally-tinged, plaintive vocal drifts across measured XX-style vibes and produces one of the years great finds. Yes, already. Check out the video to lead track Union below;
