Today, mestre Bergman goes to the UK to introduce us to The Death of Pop, a band loosely based in London but now spread around the UK. They are a family affair of three brothers and two cousins who make music of a lush, textured quality. Bringing together a shared love of shoegaze and C86, as well as early 90’s indie like Ride and The La’s, theirs is a sound with a firm nod to their heroes but one that never borders on plagiarism. They bring an urgency and guitar-pop sensibility to the genre, always letting the dreamy melodies and guitar hooks shine through. They will be playing this weekend at FIB.
