Hailing from Manchester, UK, DEADLIFE is an artist who has caught our ear – and our eye with this very cool animated video! He’s a name to know in the burgeoning darksynth scene and will be dropping his eighth full length album this November. Before that, though, the first single ‘Her Broken Smile’ offers a magic glimpse into what to expect from this studio wizard. The new single follows acclaimed past releases including ‘Singularity’ which crashed into the Billboard Electronic Album Sales Chart at #12, as well as hitting the iTunes chart in 2020. The new single again explores a darker niche within the wider synthwave scene, and is inspired by cyberpunk imagery, 80s sci-fi films and turn of the millennium computer game soundtracks. We like!

The formidable new single ‘Her Broken Smile’ is DEADLIFE’s homage to an 80’s power ballad featuring singer Tessa Hedrick, a well-regarded metal vocalist who hails from Nevada. Her vocals are angelic here as they float way up top above a jagged synth bass and darkly emotive atmosphere. The breakdown allows the purity of Hedrick’s voice to shine through, off-set by the pixelated melodies and crashing, maximal beats. The whole track is expertly produced and captures a sense of emotional turmoil that everyone can relate to.
Next single ‘Drift’ is to follow on October 23rd before the full album on November 20th, and already this single suggests DEADLIFE is in the form of his life.
