New: Death & The Maiden – Death & The Maiden

Fishrider Records are a good starting point for a lot of Kiwi music, like Males, Opposite Sex and Trick Mammoth all signed, and they’ve just put out a band called Death & The Maiden. If it sounds like they could be an under appreciated late 80’s band from their name alone, and it follows through into their music. Only, they’re a current band, existing right now, so feel free to appreciate them even more. Using The Cure, Portishead and Depeche Mode as a base, Death & the Maiden build the pizza of post-punk by adding in some modern pop menace, the kind used in groups like Fever Ray or White Hex.
