This Love Is Deadly – ‘Vertigo’

this-love-is-deadly-want-cover

This Love Is Deadly have unveiled their second album ‘Want’, with the lead track ‘Vertigo’. The Berlin trio delivered their fuzzy s/t debut back in 2012, but their latest is a little more dreamy. ‘Vertigo’ is a stunner, not far removed from The Radio Dept. I’m not sure if the rest of the LP is this good, but I intend to find out! Pick up ‘Want’ on limited 12inch through Lovesick Records.

The duo features vocalist Morgan Enos and visual artist Reuben Sawyer (Destruction Unit, Deafheaven). Their 2013 debut LP combined drone, post-hardcore and endless verb (for fans of Jesu or Whirr). If ‘Coral’ flips your eggs then take a listen to ‘Careful Travel’ featuring guest vocals from Nina Chase of Some Ember (this track made its debut over at Stereogum).
