It might be November, but it’s certainly still spooky season. The long cold nights with their dark skies that come over in the mid afternoon and don’t leave until breakfast time are hauntingly gloomy – long after Halloween. Ready, Steady, Die! know this all too well, and their single, ‘Darkstar’, is the perfect accompaniment to the winter creepies.
Although Morgan Visconti is the son of super producer Tony Visconti, his band, Ready, Steady, Die!, which includes British singer songwriter Sam K bears little resemblance to the music the elder Visconti had a hand in. Bending dream pop, electronic rock, and darkwave, the duo’s first album ‘Pleasure Ride’ was the initial instalment in their upcoming trilogy, and latest single, ‘Deep’, is a slow-burning trip across whispered verses and haunting choruses.
You’re bound to feel the name of Morgan Visconti, one half of Ready, Steady, Die! is familiar, and you’d be right. He’s the son of Bowie Alum Tony Visconti, and along with UK singer-songwriter Sam K, has formed Ready, Steady Die!, which sees the pair divide their time between New York and London, as well as the vocal and composing duties. Additionally, Visconti produces for the duo.
