Coming from Yorkshire but now based in South London, Deadletter are halfway between the fun fury of The Fall and the lopsided rhythms of Talking Heads, in a strain of danceable post-punk that explores the darkest side of existence through a light narrative lens.

They began to take their first steps as a support band for artists of the caliber of Squid, Viagra Boys and Pip Blom, and then got noticed for their electrifying live shows. Seamlessly, they move from informal verses to a mix of pure post-punk fury and irresistible rhythms, tackling issues such as bureaucracy, the loss of personal identity and modern consumerism.

To date, Deadletter are widely appreciated by artists and press such as The Guardian, DIY Magazine, Loud And Quiet, So Young Magazine, Upset Magazine, Gigwise and several “big” artists of their own scene.

After the publication in 2022 of Heat, their latest EP composed of five tracks imbued with exquisite post punk in full British style but at the same time full of contaminations, in June 2023 the band released a series of “vitriolic” singles, including including the last one, entitled “Degenerate Intimate”: an allusion to the dishonesty of some relationships and how “insulting” they are towards intelligence in the broad sense.

Deadletter’s 2020 debut single “Good Old Days” was a clear stylistic indicator of the band’s vision and was played on both BBC regional and BBC 6Music, as well as being added to the BBC’s “Introducing” playlist 6Music. The next one, “Fit For Work” was broadcast on both the regional BBC and 6Music by Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson. The song was also named Huw Stephens’ “Tip of the Week” on BBC Radio 1, and a live session of the song was also played on his Radio 1 presentation show. Third single “Fall of the Big Screen” received airplay from Steve Lamacq (who chose the band as his ‘Spotlight Artist’) and Tom Robinson on BBC 6Music, and Gemma Bradley on Radio 1.
