Backed by his trademark, rhythm-specific head banging and his long-flowing, sun-kissed blonde locks - drummer Billy Fleming, always makes sure it’s a wild night.

DZ Deathrays – ‘Bloody Lovely’

Written by on 29 January 2018

Listening to Bloody Lovely by DZ Deathrays will make you hot and dizzy when you’re whipping your hair around in circles to the poetically brutal and beautiful beats.
