After moving to Edinburgh to study, they started working together in the studio, releasing their EPs ‘Wash Away’ 2014, ‘Wake Up In A Dream’ and ‘Moving In Slow Motion’. In 2015 the brotherly unit began their highly successful partnership with Glasgow based Rocket Science Studios, who have recorded the likes of Texas and Bell & Sebastian.
“Their music echoes the influences they cite like Hendrix and The Beatles (post-1965) but they are avid gig-goers too, eager to see what is going on nowadays, so they are just as likely to be out watching Peace or Palma Violets as they are at home listening to Abbey Road or Electric Ladyland”- John Paul Mason, Daily Record.
“With hints of The Housemartins and early Arctic Monkeys infused with a twist of funk and original lyrics, they have created a distinctive and highly listenable sound of their own.” – Olaf Furniss& Derick Mackinnon, Artist Of The Week: Scotland On Sunday.
“I know they’re very hard working and are building up a good following in the capital… classic Indie sound” – Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland.
“Undeniable stage presence and performance skills”(-)”An exciting live band that will appeal widely and who are definitely festival-ready” – David Balfour, Record Of The Day.
The brothers have big plans for 2017 with a new single and European tour dates.
“It’s an explosive affair when you see Ded Rabbit live. I’d put them up there with Catfish and The Bottlemen as one of the best live acts around at the moment.” – Jim Gellatly.Amazing Radio.

A sound raw and intense however carrying a maturity, The Slumdogs paint the picture of modern British life and its dark tendencies through poetic lyrics and a gritty punk accompaniment. The hard-edged and in-your-face style translates to their live performances, making it every bit more captivating as their recordings.
