Dead Smiling Pirates
Dead Smiling Pirates hail from Copenhagen, Denmark and they set sail on the musical oceans for a life of music piracy in 2006. This power packed trio plays catchy alternative rock filled with an eclectic mix of influences highlighted by lots of tight breaks, trashy guitar riffs, and punk influenced vocals. They back up their sound with attitude focusing on the irony of life, and lyrics about egoism, youth, work, ethics, and beyond. This take on life is bound to appeal to young and old alike, with the pre-requisite being your own punk like attitude and undying nonconformist view of life itself with dead aim at the modern day corporate establishment. If you feel this way give Dead Smiling Pirates debut CD release a good listen. If you do not share the same feelings, one listen to Dead Smiling Pirates and you will be a convert ;-) Dead Smiling Pirates pump out their alternative rock sound out one track after another keeping your attention and interest from start to finish. Their exciting new release is produced by the former Metallica producer Flemming Rasmussen. __________________________________________________________________ REVIEWS 'Their CD speaks for itself through track after track that hammer home their tongue in cheek lyrics...I like this band, their sound, and the balls to just come right out and say what they feel in their lyrics, with not to mention some great loud music with hooks all over the place to bring it on home'. - MuzikReviews 'So Cal pop-punk meets the handclap-happy mod styling of the Hives in this Danish group's catchy rock tracks. There are siren calls from the retro bin here, mostly in the form of surf-influenced guitars and other early-'60s varietals, but the snarling hooks are of our time'. - Editor's Review on Download.com 'This is funky and modern. Well produced, excellent vocals, good beat, and full of life...a lot of interesting influences...surfer rock from the 60's, early punk, and recent 'lo-fi' rockers...pop punk slowed down with bits of ska and rock...sounds every bit as good as Green Day'. - GarageBand 'Excellent song writing, musicianship and recording quality. We screen thousands of songs by indie artists and name the best artists, RadioIndy Gold Artists and Dead Smiling Pirates is one of the Gold Artists'. - RadioIndy.
