Back in 2009, I discovered New York City’s Darwin Deez through a monthly online playlist that I had subscribed to. The moment “Bay Day” played the bouncy negativity had me addicted. This was a time when Vampire Weekend, Two Door Cinema Club, and many other indie pop bands alike overwhelmed my ears with beats and lyrics that wouldn’t allow my feet to calm down. It was also a time where my taste in music was spreading farther away from my emo roots. I was spending hours a day just trying to discover new bands from all over the world. It was a very important beginning to a never-ending story. As a result, Darwin Deez is a very important band to me.
A very important band to my over-sentimental personality that are going to be in SF next week at The Rickshaw Stop on Tuesday, November 24. Last September they also released their third album, Double Down. Just like the past two, it was produced by Darwin himself, and still has that hint of bouncy negativity that got me addicted in the first place. A more mature type of bouncy negativity. They also just released a new video for “The Mess She Made.”
Charly Bliss will open for Deez, which is perfect because their sound is a more fresh depressing bubblegum sound. Charly Bliss is on the verge of releasing their first debut full length, but the songs already available are some of my recent noteworthy favorites.
