Had the absolute pleasure of supporting Cash Savage the other night.
Here’s a beautifully written review from Chris Familton from Post To Wire and some awesome live photos from AAA Backstage.
Jep and Dep are masters of atmospheric music. With lights dimmed, a great sound mix and songs that possess an austere beauty and an arthouse intimacy, they quickly had an attentive audience – apart from a lone barking voice at the bar who Darren Cross acknowledged with a seething “hey, woman at the bar, stop fucking talking”. New tracks from their forthcoming album were aired, indicating it will be a strong set of songs and though the between-song banter was often thick with black humour, when it comes to performing their songs the duo are deadly serious.
We will be supporting QLD band Shifting Sands at Chippo City Limits.
Both bands will be emerging from the dark to play a mid afternoon show on Sunday July 3rd.
Bring your subconscious, memories of past lovers and the parts of your hearts that will never mend.
This is a FREE concert. See you there.
Our next show is going to be at Marrickville’s The Gasoline Pony with Hannah Marjorie (All Our Exes Live In Texas).
It’s gonna be swell.

Music Feeds has just premiered our our version of ‘Honeymoon’.
A haunting, stripped back, Jep and Dep style cover of Lana Del Rey’s “Honeymoon”.
Watch the video below! iTunes here. We are very excited to show you this, it’s a taste to what our second Album is sounding like!
Currently putting the finishing touches on their second album, Sydney’s own folk noir duo Jep And Dep have just released a stunning cover of Lana Del Rey‘s Honeymoon as a tease of things to come. Now the cover getting its own moody black and white video to boot
Having fallen instantly in love with the song when they first heard it, the duo wished they’d written it themselves. Deciding the next best thing would be to just make it their own via the time honoured tradition of the stripped back cover, the result speaks for itself.
“We loved the tragedy, the emotion, the drama and we just knew wanted to cover it”.
Heightening the melodrama and tragedy of the song by stripping it back to its bare bones, their approach is also in keeping with their sparse aesthetic and sound. Hinting at what to expect from their forthcoming follow up to 2014’s independently released Word Got Out, the cover has the band’s fans and followers eager in anticipation.
Thank you to Radio Eins Berlin, Double J who have already aired the track.

Last night we supported LOW at The Factory Theatre.
LOW are one of the most amazing live bands and without sounding cheesy, it was a god-damned honor to support them.
Also, to be on the same bill as the ever-dark-prince Mike Noga was a thrill as well.
Read Ross McLelland‘s The Music review “…Their voices mixing light, and a lot of dark. Default setting, heartbreak. Even in dreams of escaping to My Berlin, only to find it disappointingly gentrified…”
Here are some photos from the night…
