Hailing from the West Midlands (a big plus point in this reviewer’s unbiased opinion!), Dead Agents describe themselves as the “lost boys” of alternative rock. Dead Agents are Geoff Fry (drums), Adam Furmage (bass, vocals), David James Foster (vocal, rhythm guitar) and Adam Beddow (lead guitar, vocals). The EP was mixed and produced by Adam Beddow, who has worked with the Bad Flowers and Diamond Head and it shows as the sound and overall feel is one of quality.
‘Haters’ and ‘Drowning’ both have plenty of in your face vocals and furious guitar riffs, whilst ‘Be My God’ mixes a little electronica with a pounding beat and vocals that demand your attention. ‘Don’t Talk To Me’ is a little different with its strings intro, less in your guitars – not unlike You Me At Six.
If and when the band do a full album be interesting to see which direction they take, the more in your face songs of ‘Haters’ or the possibly more mainstream route taken by ‘Don’t Talk To Me’. Either way, Dead Agents are definitely a name to keep an eye and ear out for. They show plenty of energy and ideas on this impressive five song EP. ****
