Deadboy And The Elephantmen - We Are Night Sky
Label: Select Label
Format: CD


Swaggering, thrashing rock from new act Deadboy and the Elephantmen, which quickly establishes itself as being "possibly the best rock album released so far this year"

This is possibly the best rock album released so far this year. Although it hasn’t been a great year and not much of it has elapsed, there’s a good chance it will keep that title for a while yet, possibly even till December. Deadboy and the Elephantmen have produced a thrashing piece of great noise that swings from Queens of the Stone Age style menace to Guns 'n' Roses-esque slow numbers via sound reminiscent of Bowie in his heyday. Sometime all in one song. Dan Riggs’s vocals take in both the softer, slow laments and the wavering choruses just as effectively as the heavier numbers. This is all bleak – love songs to the night, screaming at death, or life, it is sometimes hard to tell which. Either way this is a great album from a band that should be destined for better things. Kept simple but never rough at the edges, 'We Are Night Sky' is a great piece of rock swagger.
