Show Review

With groovy little licks basted in a dainty chill, Silver Lake CA's The Deadly Syndrome's brand of eclectic pop definitely goes a bit bump in the night. But don't be spooked…those cardboard apparitions that line the stage of the band's performance at The FADER's CMJ Sideshow are only there for the same reason you are; to catch an awfully exciting young quartet in what is obviously their most natural of environments. - David Pitz

Artist Bio

The Deadly Syndrome are an indie folk quartet from the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles. Native Californians Will Etling (guitar) and Jesse Hoy (drums) met at the University of California in Santa Barbara, where the annual Reel Loud Film Festival (a UCSB tradition featuring student-made silent films accompanied by live music) resulted in their first musical collaboration. After mutual friends introduced the musicians to Chris Richard (vocals) and Mike Hughes (keyboards/drums), both of whom had relocated to L.A. from the East, the Deadly Syndrome was born in 2006. A handful of raucous shows on the L.A. club circuit led to a contract with Dim Mak Records that same year, and the band released its debut album, The Ortolan, in September 2007. - allmusic.com
