D E A T H B A G conjures up a psychedelic deathrock groove in the video for “Spell”, the tenebrous second single heralding the release of the project’s self-titled debut LP next month.
Functioning as the solo outlet for Washington DC-based Artist, DeeDee, D E A T H B A G summons a range of dark music influences that span the decades ranging from fuzz-laden garage rock to post-punk to gothic rock. This dark psychedelic sound is reminiscent of bands such as Christian Death, Dead Moon, Bauhaus, The Stooges, and VR Sex.
The music is characterized by themes of cult worship, societal collapse, and the existential dread looming from the immperance of our own mortality.
For D E A T H B A G’s second video debut “Spell”, videographer TJ Crymes employed an authentic 60’s Psych/Beat look to illustrate the proto-punk-driven feel of the track and lyrics inspired by the Egyptian Book of the Dead.
