The Death of Pop
Time: 8.30PM
Venue: Supersonic
Country: France

Brothers Angus James and Oliver James formed The Death Of Pop on the South-Coast of England in 2013. Their home-produced songs reflected the dismal summers and repulsive sea breeze of a forgotten seaside wonderland; recreating these thoughts through a broken mirror of 90’s shoegaze, 80’s new wave, paisley underground and sunshine pop. Since their formation, the band have worked with Art is Hard Records, Too Pure, Hidden Bay and Spanish label Discos De Kirlian. Seven years on, and with over 50+ songs released on albums, compilation and EPs, the band have continued to self-produce, giving them the luxury of time and experimentation. Analogue keyboards and Tascam tape machines feature heavily, from which their sound benefits hugely. The Death of Pop creates a charming middle ground between contemporary and nostalgia, prolifically and consistently maintaining their original ethos of sonic exploration in melodic pop songwriting.
