Dead Heart Bloom

A sonic blast of guitars, dreamy psychedelia and a propulsive beat that has been compared to being snapped out of a deep slumber by jet engines.  Dead Heart Bloom's core members Boris Skalsky and Paul Wood have long been known for their particular brand of ‘ambient’ rock. The pair originally met up in Washington DC’s early-aughts shoegaze/dreampop band Phaser.  Phaser had made a name for themselves touring with the likes of Spiritualized, Interpol, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Longwave.
Boris Started Dead Heart Bloom as a solo project based in NYC and quickly released a self-titled debut full length and the follow-up acoustic EP Chelsea Diaries.  Soon after, guitarist Paul Wood found himself relocated to the city as well and the pair teamed up, sharing a rehearsal space and studio which produced a string of EPs and a second full length, Strange Waves.  

The two briefly joined another former Phaser bandmate, Mike Reina, and Smashing Pumpkin Jimmy Chamberlin as touring musician’s in the Dangerbird Records released band Skysaw.  

Upon returning Dead Heart Bloom released another string of 3 EPs, this time produced by Mercury Rev bassist Anthony Molina.  Those EPs were bolstered by a heavier sound with the addition of former Longwave drummer Jason Molina.

After a period of focusing on other projects, as well as a pandemic break from live shows, Dead Heart Bloom returns in 2024 with their 3rd full length album, Dream States.
