Album Review: “I’ll Kiss All Fears Out of Your Face” by The Deadnotes

cover-tdn

It’s always great coming into contact with brand new bands. In this case I refer to the Indie – Pop/Punk band The Deadnotes. Hailing from Freiburg, Germany, the band consists of Darius (guitar), Jakob (bass) and Yannic (drums). In their debut record I’ll Kiss All Fears Out Of Your Face, The Deadnotes show a mainstream sound with enough edge to get accepted by more fringe punk communities.

Each song on I’ll Kiss All Fears Out Of Your Face has strong melodies, tight grooves, and enough balance in energy to make the record complete. The instrumentals are powerful and a driving force. There isn’t a lot of overproduction, which allows the organic nature of each instrument to really shine. The vocals are aggressive, scratchy, and also melodic. Sort of like a lot of indie bands you’ll hear on the radio these days in the U.S.

Thematically the album, in the words of the band, “comes straight from the heart and hopefully people can identify with while being in a bad way or are struggling with mental health.” It makes sense when you listen through the entire album, as there is rage as well as a push to survive. You can feel it.

I’ll Kiss All Fears Out Of Your Face will release on October 7th. Get your copy when it drops.
