From the current home of power pop in Perth, the most isolated city in the world, bursts the vibrant rock and roll thunder of The Deenys with their punky new single ‘Lonely Paradise’. With an undeniable genetic connection to the cheeky chappie rock of Supergrass through to the attitude and swagger of the Arctic Monkeys with a faint cockney brush, The Deenys join fellow Australians DMAs in almost being more British than the British with the same melodic burnish, and a New York bluster redolent of The Strokes.
The band openly acknowledges their musical debt:
Our style of music is undoubtedly influenced by some of the most iconic bands coming out of the UK with the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks and The Smiths to name a few. Between us all, we all bring something different to the table when it comes to making music. Many of our lyrics are written from life experiences we have had ourselves or from us looking at the world around us.
The result though is a unique style that canters along at a refreshing pace with scything guitar riffs, thundering rhythms and rousing, sneering vocals:
‘Lonely Paradise’ is out now and can be downloaded and streamed here. You can catch the band live launching the single on Saturday, 10 September Amplifier Bar Perth, WA with Star Arcana, Residents Club and Alison Parade. Tickets here.
