San Francisco’s Deafheaven have announced a run of highly anticipated Australian club shows in June, as well as a performance at the Vivid Live Festival in Sydney.
Deafheaven occupy a curious and oft-divisive space between being an ambitious outfit and playing proudly complex, niche music. They are evidence that these qualities need not be mutually exclusive. In five years they have become one of the most successful acts to spring from the genres they embrace. Their sound is intoxicating, deft musicianship firmly engendering the quintet as one musicians will endlessly deconstruct, and one laypeople merely marvel at. The atmospheric diversity of their sound has only become more intense across their three acclaimed albums.
In embracing both harmony and discord so fully, Deafheaven are an unique musical experience. Their all-encompassing live program will swallow you whole, and anybody privileged enough to have caught this incredible act live will attest to their ferocious live capabilities. You can view their complete set from 2014’s Pitchfork Music Festival, below.
