Perth-based five-piece, The Deenys have dropped their new single, Lonely Paradise. To celebrate the release, the group have shared with MILKY five records that have influenced their sound as a band!


“We are extremely excited to get out there and play this one! Lonely Paradise has been a song fans and friends have been requesting to be recorded for some time now and we can’t wait to get it out there for people's ears - and what a night we have in store for everyone. After the single launch for our last single Forever we have high expectations of the night and we can’t wait to get out there and put on our best performance to date.” the band share of the track.



Our style of music is undoubtedly influenced by some of the most iconic bands coming out of the UK with the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks and The Smiths to name a few. Between us all, we all bring something different to the table when it comes to making music. Many of our lyrics are written from life experiences we have had ourselves or from us looking at the world around us.


THE STONE ROSES - SALLY CINNAMON

Sally cinnamon is a song that has been played before every gig, every party bus and every house party all members of the Deenys have been to together. That enough shows the influence it has had on us as a band and what we try to emulate through our own sounds. The iconic guitar riff with some of the finest words ever heard in British pop culture has belted through our ears for a long time now. Our singer Drewe has Sally Cinnamon tattooed on his arm with the famous Stone Roses lemon which shows how much we love the Roses. Songs like Sally Cinnamon have inspired us and motivated us to write and create music that moves people and takes you away to a place only songs like this can.



THE KOOKS - NAIVE

The Kooks have a distinctive sound in Indie Rock. From the rhythm of the guitars to the lyrics of the songs, The Kooks undoubtedly influenced The Deenys sound. Naive is iconic and has everything - the guitars, the melodies, the lyrics - and it's a song that always gets people up and singing along.



THE SMITHS - THIS CHARMING MAN

The Smiths is morally a band that we’ve all been heavily influenced by because of its pure stature of catchy guitar riffs and poetic lyricism. The way their sound is something that is so driven but highly catchy with the lead lines and hooks is something we all collectively look back at every now and then and find out ways to use that inspiration. Morrissey and Marr are a perfect duo.



ARCTIC MONKEYS - WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN

The boys from Sheffield are a huge influence to how us Deenys like to create music on a daily basis. Their nervy but yet, literate indie rock sound plays a major role in Lonely Paradise, as Drewe (Lead Singer) touches on subjects on a man living off the dole and struggling to make ends meet. Something Alex Turner dabbles around in songs like When The Sun Goes Down.



THE LIBERTINES - DON’T LOOK BACK INTO THE SUN

The Libertines are a massive inspiration to us as a band, musically and culturally. They’re true rock n roll stars and the relationship between Pete Doherty and Carl Barat on and off stage is charming, they’re effortlessly cool. Don’t Look Back Into The Sun is one of their most renowned songs and it's clear why, with its great melody and catchy hooks, it gets a crowd going every time it's played.
