Deptford Goth - Songs

Deptford Goth is the glowy experimental-pop brainchild of UK musician Daniel Woolhouse. Last year, he released Life After Defo, an album ridden with heavy synth-pop and soaring soundscapes. “The Lovers” is the lead single off his forthcoming sophomore album, Songs, and his first work in more than a year, aside from an online-only remix EP released in the interim. The sound is altogether different from Deptford Goth’s first LP, less rolling boil than airy simmer, and a wholly more lyrical experience. Songs adds gravity and substance to Deptford Goth’s regular cocktail of woozily beautiful sounds, informed largely by Woolhouse’s recent marriage, move to a peaceful seafront property, and growing confidence as an artist. If this single is any indication, Songs will be a two-tiered journey, equal parts sonic and emotional. Listen to “The Lovers” below.
