debdepan is set to release their new three-song EP, “Omen”, available from 25th July 2023 via Bamala Newtown.
The UK-based duo debdepan consists of Chelsea Tolhurst (vocals & guitar) and Grace Bontoft (bass & backing vocals), who create dark, melodic music inspired by Warpaint, Marika Hackman, The Cure, PJ Harvey, and The Big Moon. Note that Chelsea Tolhurst is not related to Lol Tolhurst, the former drummer and keyboardist of The Cure.
Their upcoming release, “Omen”, is a three-track EP that traverses various genres. The EP will be released on 25th July 2023 through Bamala Newtown, accompanied by a series of live performances in London and Kent. You can already preserve the new single here.
The duo utilised the lockdown period to compose songs, forming the band in March 2022 and promptly performing their first shows. They were spotted by Pie Factory Music’s Emerging Artists programme, which led to the release of their single “Darkest Hour” on the Wantsum Music? label on 16th September 2022. Shortly after, the duo signed a publishing and label deal with Archangelo Music, owned by Daryl Bamonte.
This is the band’s previous single.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
