Jep & Dep

The duo have created two albums so far. Their 2014 debut album WORD GOT OUT received 4 stars in both SMH and Rolling Stone Magazine with glowing comparisons and reviews:
 
"Come on like folk-noir variations on Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue's classic Where the Wild Roses Grow, ballads with the right balance of creeping menace and painful regret"...
 
After recently supporting LOW, Aldous Harding, Cash Savage, Jen Cloher, Courtney Barnett, Mirel Wagner, Jessica Pratt , Johnny Marr and The Blackeyed Susans - Jep and Dep are ready to perform their second album “THEY’VEBEENCALLED” around the country and the world.
 
The album stretches itself across the aural equivalent of a lonely midnight drone spiriting across regrets and distant memories. THEY’VEBEENCALLED is the sound of Jep and Dep refining their folk noir sound into something menacingly beautifully and unique.
 
The album speaks from the utter disapproval of gentrification; missing rich kids in reservoirs; tumultuous relationships ending with euphoric sadness and the passing of loved ones ...THEY’VEBEENCALLED is dark, romantic, real and seeps into the room like a familiar haunting ghost.
 
Recorded and produced by Darren Cross (Dep) mainly between the hours of 12am- 5am (when all in the neighborhood were sleeping and the gentrification rests for the day) the somewhat heavy noir feel vibrates through the recordings in many ambient and ethereal forms.
 
Mastered by William Bowden (the Church, Goyte, Jimmy Little, Tim Finn to name a few) in Tasmania enhances the subtle nuances and otherworldly atmospheres of the album.
 
The album is proudly released and distributed on the duo’s very own label independent record label NO DRUMS RECORDS and will be available on Vinyl, Compact Disc and digitally exclusively on Bandcamp- no other streaming services.
