On September 5th Fuzz Club will be releasing the third LP Everything Is A Lie from Southampton's Dead Rabbits. The LP follows on from their previous Fuzz Club LPs Time Is Your Only Enemy and The Ticket That Exploded and yet again reaffirms the band as one of the most exciting and refreshing outfits in the wave of current shoegaze bands. It’s the mesmerising concoction of shoegaze, neo-psych and post-punk, delivered with a lethargic but hopeful restraint that is pinning the band at the top of the UKs fruitful ‘psych-gaze’ scene and Everything Is a Lie is certain to keep them sitting there comfortable for a while.
‘Everything Is a Lie’ could be plucked straight out of 1989, deeply indebted to Spacemen 3, Loop and My Bloody Valentine, it feels languorous and apathetic at times but frontman Thomas’s fragile yet hopeful croons drive it with an insatiable vigour from start to finish. Washed-out fuzz-encrusted guitars are underpinned by whirling bass-lines that Peter Hook would be proud of, if not envious. Hazy synths crash over you whilst thundering percussion locks the album into a deep psychedelic groove, hitting you square in the face like an immersive wall of noise.
Dead Rabbits formed in 2011 and since then have been busy playing countless gigs and tours throughout the UK and Europe - appearing at Eindhoven Psych Lab, Common People, Cosmosis Festival and sharing the stage with the likes of The Warlocks, Band of Skulls, Yuck, Night Beats, Crystal Stilts and The Telescopes.
