The Dead Leaves - If The Shoe Fits

The Dead Leaves - If The Shoe Fits
The Dead Leaves, from Melbourne, initially formed in 2009 to play and record lead vocalist Matt Joe Gow’s solo work but the band has since evolved far beyond a solo project.

In January 2011, the band began recording their debut album at BJB Studios in Sydney, with production and mixing responsibilities
being handled by Scott Horscroft (The Presets, Birds of Tokyo, The Panics) and Eric J Dubowsky (Art vs Science, Weezer).

The album is due for release in September and features eleven original songs and a poignant cover of Talking Heads ‘This Must Be The Place’. The album was recorded over two near-seamless sessions before being mastered under the watchful eye of Bob Ludwig at Gateway Studios
in Portland (USA).

Guest vocalists include Gin Wigmore (‘Album of the Year’ New Zealand Music Awards 2010) on “This Living” and Emma Louise (Full Hearts & Empty Rooms EP featuring the hit Jungle) on “Changing”.

The Dead Leaves’ music has been described as a raw and passionate collision of the dark brooding sonics of Joy Division and Grizzly Bear, meeting up with the dank basement edge of Band Of Horses and the roots rock sounds of Tom Petty.

About this track...

This is a slow burning track that creeps up on the listener until it's melodious climax. Lead vocalist Matt Joe Gow's deep baritone is reminiscent of The National's front-man, Matt Berninger. The genre-bending track infuses elements of rock, country and pop and is an absolute beauty.
