Bring Out Your Dead EP (2012) - 5-track live-off-the-floor EP



Dubai is a duo-fronted indie-rock band from Vancouver, BC. Their diverse and confident writing style can be described as singer-songwriterplus: emotional weight and lyrical depth, propelled by intricate rhythms and unpredictable harmony.
Dubai's four members all met while completing their music degrees at a Vancouver university. Upon realizing that most of what they learned was what not to do – no doubled thirds, no parallel fifths, chords only move like this, and melodies never go like that – they set out commit the ultimate act of rebellion: to do something. Marina Bennett (vocals/keyboards) and Eric Severinson (vocals/guitar), both accomplished songwriters in their own
right, found that their conflicting views and polar-opposite tastes combined into something stronger than themselves. And in the summer of 2011, with the addition of Nic Bermudez (bass/vocals) and Mark Kerrey(drums/vocals),
the roster was complete.
2012 has seen several milestones in Dubai's short history: A sold-out debut performance at Vancouver's historic Railway Club, a headlining performance at Vancouver's Joe's Apartment, dozens of other performance highlights, and the independent digital release of their first EP, 'Bring Out Your Dead'. The EP was recorded in one eight-hour day in a North Vancouver rehearsal hall, with friends videoing the session. The live-off-the floor videos are a testament to Dubai's clever songs, bold harmonies, and
energetic live performances. Dubai stands out; honest talent like this makes no excuses, and it doesn't stand still.
