Static Dress – Rouge Carpet Disaster

A band designed to matter, Static Dress are one of the most exciting prospects around.

Label: Self-released
Released: 18th May 2022

Thank fuck we’re finally rid of all those ‘rock is dead’ think pieces, huh?

With a new wave of vibrant, exciting and diverse voices pushing through the louder lens over the last couple of years, so-called guitar music has rarely seemed in such healthy shape. That’s not to say it’s not a scene in need of something, though. A touch of drama can create bands that truly matter – bands like Static Dress.

Embracing narrative and storytelling, creating an entire world around their music littered with Easter eggs, there’s a touch of the My Chemical Romance to the way they so liberally colour both inside and outside the lines. In frontman Olli Appleyard they also pack one of the most vital creative polymaths of recent years, too.

A band designed to matter, they’re one of the most exciting prospects around. You can’t say better than that.
