Fuzz-throttled guitars and big beats litter the songs of Deh-Yey, a monstrous two piece band from the northern city of Chester. Last year’s single ‘Death and Politics’ saw the band tackling US gun culture whilst they established a local fan base, before playing further afield and gathering momentum along the way.
Packing a riff-led punch, their latest single ‘Danephesians 4:31’ is a tongue in cheek account of a familiar biblical story, with a twist. ‘I wanted to simplify religion and recreate the story of Jesus through my childish brain mind,’ explains guitarist/vocalist Cash Burns. ‘Imagine it now – Jesus on the Jeremy Kyle show. Looking for answers about who his father is and how his mother conceived him whilst keeping the proud title of a Virgin.’ For this band, poking fun at the status quo through hooked vocals is sure to see them turn some heads at gigs and festivals.
A Matter of Life & Likes
A Matter of Life and Likes: A bitter view on social media and spending too much time on your phone. This song was written in spite of those who go to a gig and film the whole thing on their phone’s, I understand re-living the moment but I prefer to do it in my head. How can you fully immerse yourself into something if you are watching it through a screen or are worrying about getting the right angles? Fuck that.
Restless Bear Records have made Deh-Yey their first signing which also now Boasts Gravves & Yammerer.
It’s their first Vinyl release and we are proud to welcome them to the roster. They embody everything we have been looking for our artists. As Humans they are as hilarious, driven and wild as the sounds they create.
We feel the Punk Rock fans will love it, the Garage rock fans will embrace it, Post Punk Fans will dig it. It’s for fans that enjoy mayhem & energy mixed with a lot of lyrical content based around unusual & controversial themes. It’s a real thrill ride that doesn’t let up.
