"London electro duo Death Rattle have piqued the interest of many a tastemaker, from XFM to Artrocker. They stunned ears and left jaws agape with their astonishing yet gloomy first EP, HE&I, and they're set to continue the trend with new release Fortress – it's still music of obsidian darkness (perhaps more so), it's still engorged with anguish and it's still bloody brilliant" (405) "Death Rattle unleash their new EP Fortress on the world, following in the footsteps of HE&I which was released to some pretty big acclaim at the end of last year. In what feels like a pretty saturated field, they’re one of the most interesting acts currently making records and White Ropes is a stunning example of this" (The Tipping Point) "Immaculate production values help to shepherd their bold instrumental experiments into safer waters; less prog for prog’s sake, more Lynchian-grade dystopian opera." (The Line of Best Fit) Press Release With recent support from John Kennedy (XFM) and Tom Robinson (BBC 6Music) plus video features on NME, Artrocker and Clash around their last EP HE&l, London based girl/boy electro-gloom-pop duo Death Rattle return with their second offering - four track EP Fortress released via Frontal Noize - out now. Fortress continues where HE&l left us - on an intense and darkly mesmerising journey through icy and desolate soundscapes. Where HE&l gave us the kind of immediate, dark electro pop and nod-along beats that drew instant comparisons to The Knife and Sleigh Bells, Fortress is its insular, brooding cousin subtly creating an even bleaker, impending-doom feel that their previous release always hinted towards with the band's influences - Depeche Mode, Fever Ray and NIN - becoming ever more apparent.
