‘Health Scare are a rock n’ roll band from Manchester. With a unique and unbounded songwriting style and DIY ethics, Health Scare cement themselves as a refreshing, youthful outpouring of energy.’
“It’s a great song…voice comes over so well” Chris Difford (Squeeze)
“Sounded great, leaving people wanting more, anthemic with great vocals” BBC Introducing Manchester
“This song is a hit! I predict big things for Dalmas” James House (Beach Boys, Joe Bonamassa, Grammy nominee)
‘In Too Deep’ released on the 14th Of June 2019 is everything to expect from a Dalmas release, pumping drums, heavy guitars and beautifully melodic. The story behind the unique band name is quite simple. The bands name comes from the 1973 Bert Deling Australian film, which was titled Dalmas in which an ex-cop, Pete Dalmas, is pursuing a drug runner Mr Big. By the end of the film the drug runner is caught and the film turns into a film about the making of the film.
The band produced the song, working with engineer Dan Mizen helping to make the loud louder. Starting with acoustic guitar and an emotional vocal line, Drummer and Singer George Farrar tells the story of an emotionally drained life. The track builds into the first chorus where guitarist Jacob Maguire and Bass player Augustus Clark enter with full heavy guitar tones. George’s vocals strain an emotional line, making it instantly recognizable as a Dalmas creation. After anthemic chorus’s, smashing pumpkins 90’s guitar inspired sounds and big vocal harmonies, this is a true stadium rock anthem.
Manchester’s latest and loudest rock trio combines the rough streets of Wigan with the cold brittle Norwegian weather infused with the lovely Harrogate springs. True to their word, Dalmas are loud, raw and own their unique sound, making them stand out in their genre. With a never ending fascination for large soundscapes, catchy melodies and heavy instrumentation, Dalmas are bound to provoke interest for any rock music lover.
Dalmas are also writing with producer James Sanger. James Sanger is credited with over 67 million record sales worldwide as an artist, an artist developer, song-writer, producer, programmer, engineer, instrumentalist or mixer. His work has won 4 Brit awards, 18 Grammys and 2 Ivor Novello awards, 17 Top 10 Albums, 11 Top 5 Albums and 5 Top 5 singles so far. Artists include U2, Liam Gallagher and Keane.
