After releasing a collection of critically praised singles, Sydney-based electro-pop artist, Dead Language aka Dominic Price, is excited to unveil his impressive debut EP ‘Like Heart’ – recorded at Coogee’s Yap Yap Studios.


‘Like Heart’ sees Price explore new creative realms, by combining 80’s-esque synths likened to A-ha and Dare with snappy instrumentals and crisp production likened to E^ST and Patrick Wolf and a hint of 90’s electronica.  

Price describes the inspiration behind the EP – “All the songs found here were written while I was living in a share house in Leichhardt, Sydney. I wanted to immortalise that part of my life and pay tribute to the suburb that had yielded so much musical fodder for me, hence the homophonous ‘Like Heart’. It was in that house that I had first fallen in love, that I had went to recover, and yet that I had also met my darkest demons. The EP is a patchwork. It’s my (therapeutic) attempt to make something beautiful and whole from the pieces left of a fractured period in my life, like an old hand-sewn quilt. It’s my attempt to capture the extremities, the mundanities, the everything-in-betweens of being in your early twenties.”

Since Dead Language’s inception in 2014, Price has consistently released critically adored singles, which have been strongly supported by the likes of Rolling Stone Australia, Pilerats, Happy, triple j Unearthed, FBi and the hype machine blog community.
