Living Dead Girl
OnlineLiving Dead Girl are a multi-instrumental two piece band, who produce atmospheric, introspective music that has an eerie allure to it. The band’s debut single Skylines is imbued with a jet-black chilling sound, constricting the listener in its snake-like grip.
Skylines centres around the idea of looking at the night sky, permeated by the light of stars that have long since died. This concept of celestial ghosts resonates with a person's desire for something tangible after the loss of a loved one, something that can give us solace and comfort. Taking cues from everything from films such as It Follows, Donnie Darko and Edward Scissorhands to bands like Portishead and Massive Attack, the band have constructed an ethereal yet haunting sound. Tackling themes like escapism, fear, reflection and losing ones self, Living Dead Girl’s music is an existential journey that every single one of us can, in one way or another, identify with.
Living Dead Girl is comprised of duo Jonno Lloyd (guitar, bass, synth, programming, backing vocals) and Jessica English (lead vocals, synth, piano, programming). The pair met through an ex-girlfriend and began playing in a function band together. Despite coming from creatively different backgrounds where Jonno had cut his teeth in industrial rock bands while Jessica was part of an experimental-pop band, they found a shared love of electronica enabled their artistic interests to combine to beautiful effect. Their macabre music melds elements of electro, rock and trip-hop, creating a goth-gaze sound that wouldn’t be out of place in a Tim Burton movie.
Skylines is out now via LDG Records.
