First Look: Deadset Dream – Snakes & Ladders
To say that “Snakes & Ladders”, the new track and video from Sheffield, UK band Deadset Dream is catchy would be the understatement of 2016. The song is perhaps the most catchy song I’ve heard all week. Rich with melody and lush with guitars and that oh-so-good thick texture that always rattles the speakers at a party, Deadset Dream make a new age anthem for the masses that will make the music itself the life of any party. Well done!
About Deadset Dream:
In 2015 the band went from strength to strength with shows supporting the likes of Funeral for a Friend, Roam and Autumn Ruin before ending the year with a sold out show at Corporation in their hometown of Sheffield to launch ‘The Fall’ the first single from the band’s first EP in 3 years: Battlecry.
2016 has seen the band hit the ground running with a full schedule as word spreads about their exciting live stage performances. Many high profile dates are already confirmed in new towns and cities across the country, whilst the new music continues to attract high praise such as being described by Metal God Rob Halford of Judas Priest as ‘Packed with talent, this band has got what it takes’
Snakes and Ladders is a tongue in cheek swipe at the early pop punk summer anthems, from a British perspective. A departure away from the band’s recent darker edged release Snakes & Ladders is a fun, energetic hook-filled British Summer anthem, performed in the spirit it was written.
Produced by James Pinder of Treehouse Studios, who also works with bands such as Bullet For My Valentine and Fightstar, the band feels the song has all the right ingredients to make everyone’s summer playlist.
They played the Head of Steam in Newcastle on July 29th and have recently been announced to join the Kaya Festival in Wales this August (7th)
