Dead Confederate "The Rat"

The Rat - Dead Confederate

Dead Confederate’s music is intense – a lumbering, southern, psychedelic grizzly that reveals itself like fireworks in slow motion. The songs build before they burst into either giant melodic overtures or a shimmering cascade of saturated squalor – or both. They’re rock songs with a drawl. But when a charge is needed, Dead Confederate cut through the fog in favor of razor sharp punkers that pay tribute to nineties rock heroes – a rock edge that helps them find balance against more challenging soundscapes.
