Melbourne, Australia’s Alt-indie quartet The Dead Leaves have released the official video for “If The Shoe Fits“. If The Shoe Fits is the first single from their highly anticipated sophomore record Cities On The Sea due out November 4th on Liberation Music. The track has been generating a lot of buzz, particularly in Australia where it was recently featured as the “iTunes Single of the Week”.
Cities On The Sea, is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Messenger, and sees The Dead Leaves moving from more of a solo project for singer Matt Joe Gow to a full band effort. Already considered one of the premiere bands in Australia, this release will undoubtedly result in a more global presence for The Dead Leaves.
The Dead Leaves fall somewhere between The National and Joy Division creatively. Their music is characterized by its ambient tones and inspiring guitar work, which create the perfect sonic backdrop for Matt Joe Gow’s vocal versatility.
The band is currently offering the album track “Harm” as a free download on their facebook page, and you can also get a free download of their reinvention of The Talking Heads classic “This Must Be The Place” here. Make sure to get in on the band now before the rest of the world inevitably does.
