The first material to be released since his debut album «Queer Genesis», «Dance With The Devil» is Dead Method’s (aka Lloyd Best) most polished track yet, taking his signature spooky sound to the next level.
The track was produced with long-time collaborator and producer Minas, a process that, due to the pandemic, took place entirely online with Lloyd Best recording all his vocals at home.
Speaking about the single, he says, «I wanted to explore the politics between religion and sexual preference and how that has affected generations of queer people. As a gay man I have had years of being told I was going to hell or committing sin and there comes a time when you must look beyond their fiction and question why they are telling you this. It’s all a control tactic. Choosing to dance with the ‘Devil’, is choosing freedom and liberation over chains and turmoil. It comes with a realisation that the world won’t end if you choose to be happy and disregard the fears/prejudices other people place over you».
For those yet to make his acquaintance, Dead Method is one of Wales’ finest pop talents and a true DIY popstar. He creates all his artwork, videos and imagery himself, staying firmly in control of his artistic vision. Working with his long time collaborator, Minas, he conjures up dark alternative pop that explores sexuality, homophobia, love, loss and more with sobering honesty and poetic flair.
Dead Method has supported the likes of Georgia, Public Service Broadcasting and 65daysofstatic on their Welsh tour dates and is rapidly becoming one of Cardiff’s must see live acts. He is passionate about championing LGBTQ+ voices in the music industry and has worked with a number of LGBTQ+ artists such as Hvnter and Joe Hythe, striving to centre queer people in everything he does.
SaintAhmad is a Brooklyn-based rapper, singer, dancer, and songwriter who creates soulful, innovative R&B songs mixed with throwback hip-hop aesthetics. Being somewhat of a hopeless romantic, his music has undertone themes of love and sex, where he explores the fantasies that ruminate in his head.
«Legacy» premieres this weekend on Spotify and Apple Music and is about feeling proud about who we are and what we believe in, regardless of what other people think, and to pass that on to upcoming generations. The record labels behind the song is TGR Music Group and Sony Music Sweden.
