Dead Gaze

Coming from the hills of North Mississippi and the Cats Purring Collective (featuring prolific artists like Dent May, Bass Drum of Death and Flight), Cole Furlow has been releasing material under the guise of Dead Gaze since 2009, recently morphing into a five-piece live band. Combining effortless pop songs with recordings that put an emphasis on texture, Dead Gaze has released a slew of cassettes and 7” records on notable DIY labels like Group Tightener, Fire Talk, and Clan Destine, and received critical acclaim on sites such as Altered Zones, The Fader, and Weekly Tape Deck.

Furlow explains that he records “wherever I can be alone”. Whether it be in the pastoral Mississippi country where his mother lives, the State College marching band hall where his father teaches, or at the Cats Purring ‘Dude Ranch’ where he currently resides, his intention is always to “try to capture a very memorable moment”, a spontaneous approach which home recording makes possible. The DIY ethos that goes into Furlow’s recording process shouldn’t feed into the lo-fi genre-trapping, though, as every sound Furlow commits to tape is deliberate. Dead Gaze’s trademark over-compressed sound is one which has come from Furlow’s belief in the importance of production as another instrument; “I think texture is something that is just as important as writing nice melodies and recording big songs”.
