Dehd is a Chicago based indie rock trio with a relatively ragged sound, influenced by '60s girl band vocals, jangle pop, and garage pop, not necessarily in that order. Drummer Eric MacGrady lays out a solid stumping beat with his stripped down configuration consisting of only a snare, a floor tom, and a trigger kit. Guitarist Jason Balla goes back and forth between reverb and chimey surf rock tones. The vocals are handled jointly by Balla and the bass player Emily Kempf, as they trade lines, leads, loosely harmonize their way through the songs. They play with a sense of sway and a lot of space as a band. Their songwriting has been getting sharper and more mature with each album, and their production, tighter and cleaner. They have left behind the lo-fi sound and the nervous energy of their early days behind.
