At the Dublin Castle

10 May 2011

Camden pub and gig venue, The Dublin Castle, regularly cultivates new musical talent, tonight playing host to Oxford band and friends of Milk, Deer Chicago.

With their post rock, progressive indie music, the 3-piece band will perform on the stage previously graced by the likes of Blur, Travis and The Artic Monkeys.

The sound of Deer Chicago isn’t easy to categorise, with repetitive guitar riffs, reflective vocals and xylophone notes, there's something to appeal to most. They sit somewhere between the soft and ambient sounds of M83, the beautiful atmospheric soundscapes of Sigur Ros, the epic climaxes of Placebo and catchy lyrics of Death Cab for Cutie.
