DeafWish

Formed in Australia, Deaf Wish’s massive, feedback-laden music abides by a simple, stubborn principle: Don’t make something that is meant to last. On stage, Deaf Wish makes something unique that will never happen again—no script, no fancy backing track, no orchestration, no perfectionism. Their desire to stay in the moment and accept that everything is temporary yields euphoric moments of release. Simple riffs and gang-style vocals are overturned and buried by unexpected walls of noise, revealing a damaged musical landscape that shows its scars like a badge of honor.
