About Dehd

Dehd is a three-piece American indie-rock band, whose sound is characterized by reverb-heavy guitar, blunt drumming and the use of idiosyncratic vocals.  After hitting a stride with their 2020 breakout record Flower of Devotion, followed by their radiant Fat Possum debut Blue Skies in 2022, the group’s highly anticipated fifth studio album Poetry was released May 10th via Fat Possum Records.
Poetry transports us to a world steeped in imagery, as the band shows their ability to weld a variety of musical directions inside a concise and catchy sub-three-minute package. Rolling Stone lauded the band’s lyrical talent, noting, “Kempf’s and Balla’s lyrics approach matters of the heart and soul with an unvarnished sincerity that’s sweet, silly, and just serious enough.” It’s a world painted in the sunset tones of summer romance and flickering old flames, as showcased in the album’s singles. It’s an otherworldly experience (“Alien“), the gleam of motorcycle chrome (“Mood Ring“), the struggle against self-defeating tendencies (“Light On“), and the sultry summer evenings and the quest for love (“Dog Days”).
Poetry is out now via Fat Possum Records.
