Melbourne based A Dead Forest Index are brothers Adam & Sam Sherry, forming a minimalist two piece. Drawing on elements centred around rhythmic pulls and washes of vocals, the guitar & percussion clatters in and around measured structures, that can end abruptly, or drift off into tapping decrescendos where the harmony does find a resolution. 

Antique brings to life a sound that is strikingly original and sincere. This music recalls and is homage to a by-gone era. Lyrically engulfing forms are highlighted by repetition, or isolated acapella moments, that mark this collection as a unique and important first release. 

A fresh new sound which should please fans of a mixture of Scott Walker, Chelsea Wolfe, Einstürzende Neubauten, Bela Bartok or Dead Can Dance.
