“This is the first time personally where I feel like I had no limits to writing the songs”, says singer/guitarist Elliot Blair. “I wrote about things to get them off of my chest, and we want people to connect and relate.”
A bold and honest statement from the front man of the Cleveland, OH based band Dead Leaves. Their new self-titled EP is filled with heart-on-a-string emotion that fits right at home with bands like Brand New, Balance And Composure and The Hotelier.
From the very first words of Reconstruct Your Body Blair croons, “So, I felt a weight pressing when you spoke the truth to me, I never honored sympathy so much”. Blair’s delivery exudes pain and his lyrics paint pictures that blend with their loud/quiet dynamics to create an overall ebb and flow that can bring listeners to their feet or to their knees.
Previously self-releasing their last release “Amend Regret”, Dead Leaves has now teamed with Massachusetts based label Take This To Heart Records to help further expand their reach and get their music in as many hands as possible.
