The Dead South kicks off series of Benelux shows today in Aarschot05-11-2017
Saskatchewan is how it sounds: A province in the prairies of Canada. Sixteen times the size of NL, but with less than one million residents. Lots of nature, and lots of silence. Perhaps lots of time to fill the silence with natural sounds, too.
This is where the quartet The Dead South comes from, and fits perfectly within this description. The debut album Good Company revealed the four hatted, hairy and bearded fellas, with singer Nate Hilts as a focal point. The album is a perfect fit to the genres Folk, Neo-Folk and Bluegrass-Folk or even alternative Country with refreshing tunes to it.
The first album really was a promise that is now fulfilled with the new release titled Illusion & Doubt. No doubt the four piece from the prairies has matured. Harmony changes as well as excellent and virtuosic instrumental parts have been added to their incredible energetic, passionate and sometimes surprisingly catchy melodies.
