Synthwave DJ DEADLIFE releases song ‘Strands Unravel’

Rising UK synthwave producer DEADLIFE has released his latest single, ‘Strands Unravel’. The single is lifted from his upcoming album, City of Eternal Rain which will be released on 24 April via NRW Records. The Manchester-based producer has seen substantial support from tastemaker Youtube channel NewRetroWave and has racked up a staggering 3.2 million streams on digital platforms. His debut album, Bionic Chrysalis was selected as Best Synthwave Album 2017 by MetalSucks and he has two albums ranked in the US Billboard’s Electronic Album Sales chart top 20 in August 2019. His album Singularity was voted best Dark Synth Album 2019 by followers of Russia based label Retrowave Touch. As a result of his noteworthy achievements, DEADLIFE has seen support from publications such as Bloody Disgusting, Metal Sucks and Iron Skullet. Raised in his “grim, rundown” hometown of Crewe, UK DEADLIFE would spend hours locked away in his room playing games. He has always loved the music from these games and the influences of these stylings can be seen mirrored throughout his work. An electronic musician with a classical background, he formed and played drums in a band, playing numerous tours, before he discovered band life wasn’t for him as he felt held back creatively. With a driving force of ambition and passion, DEADLIFE began to explore the world of music production. DEADLIFE is inspired by soundtracks and classical music as well as modern artists such as Disasterpeace, Justice, deadmau5, Sigur Ros, Refused and Deftones. However, his own work sits in closer comparison to the notorious synthwave works of Justice, Gesaffelstein and SebastiAn.

Speaking of ‘Strands Unravel’, DEADLIFE tells us, “With how things have been going, I’d be lying if I said I was happy with how things are and the near future looks promising. It doesn’t. I feel things are unraveling so fast, I can barely keep up. The delicate strands of humanity are fast unwinding. The song gathers momentum, I have a tendency to do that when I write because its how I often feel. Emotions can be turbulent, they ebb and flow, and I hope whoever listens and enjoys what I write can empathise and relate.”
