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.
