Tom Hackwell - Slingshot Manoeuvre

The track is an excitable geyser that builds to an elated atmospheric climax. Part-Eno, part-Vangelis, Tom Hackwell’s debut song is a rousing, anthemic instrumental - a guaranteed mood-booster!

New addition to the DER roster! 01 Jun 2020

We’re thrilled to welcome John E Vistic Rock n' Roll Soundsystem to the Deaf Endling roster.

A Bristol legend in his own right, John E Vistic emanates raw rock and roll vitality. Where Shakespeare meets Iggy Pop, his long lineage of juxtaposed influences clot to form one enigmatic musician and frontman.

His upcoming releases through Deaf Endling Records ooze with rock ‘n’ roll filth, and are gilded by his unique erudite lyricism. Watch this space for upcoming Vistic news!


Tom Hackwell - Slingshot Manoeuvre 20 May 2020

Debut single, Slingshot Manoeuvre is set for release by Deaf Endling Records on 09/06/20.

A swirling, geyser of ambience and atmosphere, Slingshot Manoeuvre bares the hallmarks of an artist undergoing some surgical self-exploration.

The track builds from Enoesque caterpillar, with its subtle ambient piano, until it emerges fully as a bold neon Vangelis butterfly. Cinematic, epic, heart-rending - the soundtrack to the hero's journey, bubbling with warm synths and otherworldly vocals.

Lespectre - Lost With You 13 Nov 2019

Lespectre - Lost With You

An almost-certain Christmas number one and anti-anthem that peers between the cracks of a doomed relationship, Lost With You is an arresting foray into Motown territory for the five-piece, who formed earlier this year. Led by Sam Winter-Quick’s insouciant bassline that’s joined soon enough by a wall of dreamy doo-wop harmonies and reverb-lavished guitars, the song has already been picked up for airplay by BBC Introducing.

“Hurry up 'cos I’m feeling like I might be worth something after all,” urges the band’s lead vocalist Tom Hackwell in the opening moments of the song, before observing drolly, “I’m borderline happy/ and that doesn’t make me happy at all.” It’s a potent example of the dreamy atmospherics and world-weary observational writing that have seen the band become one of the most talked-about in their home city of Bristol.
