Death Songs S/T 10 Available Now Via Post-Consumer

Portland-based outfit Death Songs are pleased to announce West Coast tour dates supporting fellow PDX band And And And. The tour kicks off January 27 in Arcata, CA with performances at The Facement. See below for a full list of dates Death Songs is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Nick Delffs. “I called it Death Songs because there’s always that possibility that the next song I write would be my last,” Nick Delffs says, and you can hear the smile on his face. It’s not that he’s morbid-quite the opposite. Delffs sees his bands moniker, which might at first induce visions of dancing skeletons drumming tombstone rhythms in a cemetery, as more of a celebration. “Native American death songs celebrate the person’s life,” Delffs elaborates, “and that’s what I want to do with these songs as well.” As previously announced, the first two singles from the record “Ophelia” and “Water in the Eyes of Man” are available for free download.

Death Songs call up many traditions in their execution, from call and response reminiscent harmonies to
American folk themes and African rhythms, while also always maintaining a unique style all their own. Delff’s songwriting is both tender and heavy, invoking the simultaneous joy and sadness of being alive. “Life is sad sometimes, but it’s also happy sometimes,” Delffs says, “and the songs reflect both of those things-they’re human.”
