Three is a crowd, but two is a party – at least when it comes to Australia’s DZ Deathrays. Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley are hitting German stages next month to make sure the sweat is dripping from the ceiling. Instead of just fitting comfortably in the “garage rock duo” category, DZ Deathrays make sure they’ve got both their punk mentality and their pop melodies in the right place. Their only six weeks old second album “Black Rat” perhaps leans into the latter direction a bit more than the brilliant debut “Bloodstreams”, but that doesn’t mean the two have lost their bite. They’re still writing their angry punk anthems for the kids to scream them back at them. No doubt that their Facebook self-description “We started at a house party… we will most likely end at one” is nothing but the truth. For now though, we will have to do with seeing them turn the cosy rock clubs of Germany’s larger cities into a house party of their own kind.
