Dead Leaf Echo – ‘true.deep.sleeper’ EP [Premiere] jimmy 26/02/2014 shoegaze Brooklyn’s Dead Leaf Echo deliver their four track EP ‘true.deep.sleeper’ today via Moon Sounds Records (digital/vinyl)! The new release follows the quartet’s debut LP ‘Thought And Language‘ and leads into a fresh set of tour dates across the USA and Canada (see below). The title track ‘true.deep.sleeper’ is a densely layered affair with a seductive vocal line woven through the wash. Clearly all of last year’s live shows have paid off because Dead Leaf Echo are sounding more confident than ever. The EP pays homage to the shoegazing anthems of their debut but then extends into electronic territory for the ambient ‘heaven.sent.sleeper’. There’s a definite 80s synth pop influence throughout, the dark and swirling ‘so.wrong’ is the best example, not unlike the early days of The Cure. Whereas ‘blind.island’ is a sojourn into experimental dream pop, with its twisted vocal performances and overall oddity. ‘true.deep.sleeper’ is a welcome edition to Dead Leaf Echo’s catalog and will appease fans hanging out for album number two which is expected later this year.
