Dead boyfriend

Denver based, genre melting indie fuzz


Indie folk rock 4-piece Dead Boyfriend gracefully genre hop on their newest EP installment, it's just bad news. This batch of 4 tracks was released in early January, 2024, and sets a more subdued, folk inspired tone for the band's future work. Though most of the songs have an acoustic, folk vibe with hints of violin throughout, other areas are very synth, shoegaze, and bossanova inspired, ensuring the listener never gets bored during it's 13 minute runtime.Beginning as a 1 woman solo project in 2018 from singer-songwriter Ashley Nova, the band has now evolved from 1 singer to 3. The band frequently experiments with new instruments, including more unconventional ones such as melodica, dulcimer guitar, and saxophone in their indie rock, singer songwriter centered tunes.Dead Boyfriend is known for their ability to hop between all genres, their abstract lyricism, and unconventional song structure. it's just bad news is an extension of that, and there’s something on this EP for everyone to appreciate.
