Release Day! 09 Jun 2020

Tom Hackwell - Slingshot Manoeuvre

The track is an excitable geyser that builds to an elated atmospheric climax. Part-Eno, part-Vangelis, Tom Hackwell’s debut song is a rousing, anthemic instrumental - a guaranteed mood-booster!

Now available on all streaming platforms here.

New addition to the DER roster! 01 Jun 2020

We’re thrilled to welcome John E Vistic Rock n' Roll Soundsystem to the Deaf Endling roster.

A Bristol legend in his own right, John E Vistic emanates raw rock and roll vitality. Where Shakespeare meets Iggy Pop, his long lineage of juxtaposed influences clot to form one enigmatic musician and frontman.

His upcoming releases through Deaf Endling Records ooze with rock ‘n’ roll filth, and are gilded by his unique erudite lyricism. Watch this space for upcoming Vistic news!


Tom Hackwell - Slingshot Manoeuvre 20 May 2020

Debut single, Slingshot Manoeuvre is set for release by Deaf Endling Records on 09/06/20.

A swirling, geyser of ambience and atmosphere, Slingshot Manoeuvre bares the hallmarks of an artist undergoing some surgical self-exploration.

The track builds from Enoesque caterpillar, with its subtle ambient piano, until it emerges fully as a bold neon Vangelis butterfly. Cinematic, epic, heart-rending - the soundtrack to the hero's journey, bubbling with warm synths and otherworldly vocals.

Lespectre - Lost With You 13 Nov 2019

Lespectre - Lost With You

An almost-certain Christmas number one and anti-anthem that peers between the cracks of a doomed relationship, Lost With You is an arresting foray into Motown territory for the five-piece, who formed earlier this year. Led by Sam Winter-Quick’s insouciant bassline that’s joined soon enough by a wall of dreamy doo-wop harmonies and reverb-lavished guitars, the song has already been picked up for airplay by BBC Introducing.

“Hurry up 'cos I’m feeling like I might be worth something after all,” urges the band’s lead vocalist Tom Hackwell in the opening moments of the song, before observing drolly, “I’m borderline happy/ and that doesn’t make me happy at all.” It’s a potent example of the dreamy atmospherics and world-weary observational writing that have seen the band become one of the most talked-about in their home city of Bristol.

Erotic Secrets of Pompeii - pre-order! 01 Mar 2019

Pre-order the debut full-length release from Erotic Secrets of Pompeii - available for consumption on 15th March 2019.

Witness in the House of Pox holds a bizzaro mirror up to the world, offering back a surreal image of the unstable times we live in.

The songs are charged with Lynchian imagery and grotesque characters who rant, ramble, and repent atop an apocalyptic groove that is as tight as it is chaotic. Witness…serves up an unhinged sonic squall that spasms somewhere between post punk and art rock (via funk, industrial, world, Germanic cabaret, and breakbeat), while exploring the transgression of authority figures, the dangers of masculinity, and the decomposition of the self.

With this, their debut album, Erotic Secrets of Pompeii invite you to bear witness to a world that is sick, a world that lies beneath the topsoil of the everyday, beneath our very noses; a place beyond our peripheral vision, which is closer than we'd like to think.

Erotic Secrets of Pompeii - Auguries & Auguries 12 Nov 2018

Erotic Secrets of Pompeii's inaugural release 'Auguries & Auguries' is that of an awakening - a band taking its first sharp breaths outside the comfort of the womb.

The track trudges through the hedgerow, trampling tulips while contemplating the importance of omens and identity - the power of divine messages and how they shape us. The track sees ESOP at their most restrained and orchestral, and features the strange handmade instrument known as the Tubephone.
