Deafkid have already kickstarted their career playing in Ghostpoet’s band as well as aiding the production on his Mercury Nominated album, Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam. With their new track Vigilante, they’ve earned praise from the likes of Lauren Lavern and just yesterday premiered their awesomely fun video for the track on This is Fake DIY.
But enough of the gushing, despite it all being very much deserved. Vigilante is electronic-pop with a mathy groove that is unusual enough to separate Deafkid from the masses but is infectious enough to send your shoulders into a twitching frenzy. Which is a good thing.
The band who are Christopher Lockington and Florian Sauvaire, have already graced us with their presence last night at The Sebright Arms but you are able to catch them again on America’s day of Independence (or July the 4th for those of you who don’t care much about that) at Hoxton’s Catch and again for Ipswich music day on the 7th.
