If you were an artist and went by the name Dead Gaze, would you let the photographer at your shoot know that you were going to create an actual dead gaze and if so, would you allow to have that photo be used as your publicity shot? Cole Furlow decided to do this, and may have seen the end result, only to say “WTF? Let’s do this.”
Maybe that’s not why Furlow made the facial expression, but emotional glances aside, he is making some very good music that I’m sure he hopes you and everyone will enjoy when his debut album is released on October 22nd. Entitled Brain Holiday (FatCat/Palmist), maybe the expression is that of someone whose mind decided to take a vacation.
Or maybe not.
What we are sure of is that Dead Gaze creates a nice mixture of rock and pop that can be orchestral, if not celestial at times, and seems to grave infectious hooks and powerful riffs. I like this, and I hope you like it to with the song below, “Rowdy Jungle”. Perhaps the origins of rowdy jungles can happen when he hits the road next month with Dent May.
