DECAPITATORS have spent the last year since their formation forging a cult-like following in the dingier parts of Sydney’s inner west for their dark and harmonically intense brand of rock. With a sound reminiscent of UK garage rock bands of the 80s and 90s, DECAPITATORS’ first official track sees them bursting onto Sydney’s rock scene with a fervour.
Upon progressing from duo to band, Decapitators have spent the last year forging a cult like following in the dingier parts of Sydney’s inner west for their dark and harmonically intense brand of rock. Dynamic, eerie, playfully dissonant and shrouded in breathy mystery, The now Sydney four-piece Decapitators are also set to release a music video later this month, alongside a few select tour dates, to celebrate the release of their debut single.
Decapitators is the eventual product of a year long trip to Mexico by two South Coast NSW friends. With no intentions for the music beyond writing songs on cheap guitars to pass the time, the jams quickly became anthems of the trip, and subsequently sentimental souvenirs. After some years of reprising these tunes every weekend upon reunion, Ivan (Rhythm guitar and lead vocals) and Thorne (Bass and backup vocals) began to dream of audiences beyond their immediate drunken social circles, and recruited two friends, one old (Matt – Lead guitar and backing vocals) and one new (Tom – Drums) to bolster the ranks.
