WTSH Top 10 Releases of 2013 Series: Olivier Debard of Dead Horse One.

About Olivier Debard
French quintet Dead Horse One is one of the most exciting projects happening on the boundary of shoegaze and psychedelia today. Olivier Debard writes all of the songs for Dead Horse one as well as recording and performing with the band.

Dead Horse One hit the ground running in 2012 with the phenomenal Heavenly Choir of Jet Engines EP, which leaned somewhat towards the dark and heavy and immediately established a highly realized sound for the band. The group has performed at the Liverpool and Berlin psych fests and has shared the stage with The Telescopes, The Veldt, and French compatriots H-Burns and Sound Sweet Sound.

Dead Horse One’s debut full-length, Without Love We Perish, produced by Mark Gardener of Ride,has been completed and will be released in France in early 2014 by A Quick One Records (an exact date is expected shortly). WTSH feels truly privileged to have heard Without Love in advance, and we’re confident that it will be one of the definitive releases of the year in the shoegaze/psychedelic spectrum.

WTSH has an interview with Olivier as well as more about Without Love We Perish in store for you. In the meantime, you can check out the official Dead Horse One videos that we have posted here and here. Many thanks, Olivier, for putting this list together for WTSH!
