During a phase of popular music where new wave sound and punk influence has been cast (perhaps temporarily) to the side of the stage, DZ Deathrays press on with their blend of party attitudes and gritty imagery to forge a kind of dance punk that is grossly absent from Australia’s present rock scene. Throw in the fact that it’s just a duo of dudes who can create a thrumming 11-track album worthy of back-to-back listens (I’m talking about their latest offering Black Rat), and you’ve got the kind of performance worth lashing out paper for. We made small talk with lead singer and guitarist Shane Parsons ahead of their performance at Tasmania’s Party in the Paddock Festival.
