The Debauchees are seemingly old souls with a youthful sneer. At just 20, the three members of The Debauchees have crafted a full-length that feels vintage and modern, classic and new. Their debut, Big Machines and Peculiar Beings, evokes the minimalist yet intricate post-punk approach of Wire, Talking Heads, and Young Marble Giants with distinct vocals that evoke an emotive Nico. And like many of their punk predecessors, this thunderous trio comes from a fine lineage of artists who formed a band before learning their instruments - to prodigious results. Vocalist Sydney Chadwick says "we all learned how to play in an unconventional way so our playing styles became personal and rule-defying."
The Debauchees are Sydney Chadwick (vocals/guitar), Ashley Bowen (bass), and Cameron Lowe (drums).
Big Machines and Peculiar Beings is out November 12th on sonaBLAST! Records.
