The Deadeyes is a new 3-piece band that features members formerly in the long-standing underground group Grubstake. They play a unique style of violin-driven soulpunk that sounds like the Black Keys had a love child with the Bad Seeds. John Coursey, who also plays folkroots with the High Hearts and experimental space -noise with The Mikroknytes, takes a very John Cale approach to the music both jamming and droning a gorgeous landscape of strings. Patrick McHugh and David McMullin (old friends who have played together since their college band Connie Chung in the '90's) provide the fiery guitar and drum backbone. The band swings from majestic to sparse through a collection of blazing and soul-tinged material that capitalizes on their many years of experience.
