'Positive Rising: Part 2' is the closing chapter of DZ Deathray’s sprawling rock saga which began with 'Part 1' in 2019.
Heavily inspired by apocalypse and sci-fi, the Aussie rockers' fifth record is conceptual and gorgeously trashy. ‘Fear The Anchor’ featuring South African based artist Ecca Vandal provides a jeering gang-vocal laden track with an essence of boisterous and gothy 80s punk. The anthemic ‘Kerosene’ feels equally as nostalgic with shoegazey moments and spitting vocals that grapple with themselves.
A record fuelled with angst, nostalgia and riffs aplenty - DZ Deathrays might have made their most riveting work yet.
