The Dead Sea, the salt lake that borders Jordan to the east, and Israel to the west, is unique. It is the deepest hypersaline lake in the world, and as such has a myriad of health benefits and is utilised for it’s therapeutic qualities. Dead Sea is also the moniker of a self described ‘turbo chillwave’ quartet from Paris. What is instantly abundantly evident, is the therapeutic qualities their ethereal, enveloping take on dream pop shares with their salty namesake. Glitchy, jagged drum machine beats punctuate otherworldly, trance inducing echoing guitar lines, as the female vocals ebb and flow through the entire chimera. Think Grimes, and James Blake collaborating with Tycho or Aphex Twin or a ever so slightly more upbeat XX.
Unsurprisingly, EP1 is their first EP since their formation earlier in 2014, and both tracks from the ep are available to stream below. Keep an eye out for upcoming tour dates, and more absolutely beautiful tunes.
