New Music: The Others Are Dead, Steve – Sycophantis

The Others Are Dead, Steve is fast becoming one of my favourite new bands, with Sycophantis being a must listen.

By Jane Howkins

The track opens up with an absolute barrage of riffs, before the slightly mellower verse kicks in, containing a really prominent bassline. Some cool guitar licks kick in with the vocals, which rise up in pitch later on, showing a great range. Sycophantis has a lot of attitude and energy, and the chorus only elevates this further, containing a lyric that is perfect for singing along to. The Others Are Dead, Steve are an amazing alt-rock/punk act, and if you like that sort of music, you should check this out!
