"This music isn’t designed to get the heart pumping. It certainly gets the head nodding, mind."
Don’t you love it when band dudes strike out and do something different? Death Of Lovers may be a new outlet for members of atmospheric Stateside rockers Whirr and Nothing, but ‘Buried Under A World Of Roses’ embraces the softer side of the spectrum and draws little to no parallels with either project. The EP’s title track is a shining example of this band’s airy approach. Keys and shimmering guitars blend together underneath breathy, morose vocals that encapsulate everything good about dreary, downbeat pop music and unusually for these guys, this music isn’t designed to get the heart pumping. It certainly gets the head nodding, mind.
