A Dead Forest Index

A Dead Forest Index is a sibling-led nomadic pop duo from New Zealand founded by Adam Sherry in 2008, joined by his brother Sam in 2010. Their project cites a wide range of influences, including William Blake, Scott Walker, Swans and Romanian lăutari troupe Taraf de Haidouks.

Adam's androgynous, otherworldly voice, which invokes Antony and the Jonsons, early Marianne Faithful and Nico, is bolstered by multi-instrumentalist Sam’s inventiveness, and the overall effect suggests a steady diet of early 4AD bands like Dead Can Dance or Bauhaus.

The two brothers honed their sound on the road to unveil their first EP ‘Antique’ in 2012, and ‘Cast of Lines’ in 2014 on Pop Noire. A Dead Forest Index look back, but always towards something beautiful.

Pop Noire is an independent record label based in Paris, founded in 2011 by artists duo Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, and artistic director Antoine Carlier with the desire to develop bespoke projects.
It all started in London with a punk and DIY philosophy as the duo John & Jehn was composing and recording in the basement of their home, while the back room was transformed into a makeshift office, stocked to the brim with records.

Pop Noire quickly got noticed and established its uncompromising reputation on an international scale with Lescop’s lunar and captivating ‘La Forêt’ or Savages’ burning ‘Shut up’.
The projects mainly build around Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, but the house also opens to other artists as the New-Zealand duo A Dead Forest Index.
In 2017, Pop Noire joined forces with production company Walter Films founder, Xavier Arias. The label explores new aesthetics such as electronic and experimental music, with the signature of French young composer Cirrial and the release of Johnny Hostile’s ambient debut album.

Pop Noire is an artists’ house which produces and develops projects in line with its identity: independent, radical and exploratory.
