Please Yourself is the lead track released to gain some extra buzz for Oxford’s most hyped about band, Dead Jerichos. A three piece that formed after frontman Craig Evans was invited to play a gig in his home village of Drayton, and drafted long time mates Sahm Amirsedghi (bass) and Leo Rayner (drums) to help wow the bikers who attended said gig.
The track blends a nice mix of indie with a slightly ‘out there’ atmospheric sound, most likely stemming from the amount of reverb piled onto Evans’ guitar. It has a very accessible feel to it, with an easy-to-get structure and a catchy rhythm section, much like the band Air Traffic had created their biggest hit Charlotte.
Dead Jerichos is a highly anticipated project that has played many shows, and even played AFTER Ellie Goulding at the Underage Festival one year. The track is solid and displays most of the reasons why press and people everywhere are going insane for more material from these guys. Their EP Please Yourself is released on the 14th of December via Bandcamp, and was produced by currently hot producer Rory Brattwell.
