From the outset, THE LOST & THE LONGING seems like an ambitious crossover. MORE: DUNE RATS: …
Have you ever listened to a track and just thought the vibes were immaculate? Well, that’s exactly how we felt listening to Baltimore.

It’s the latest tune from Deadshowws, the alt-rock quartet hailing from NSW’s Central Coast.
On their past efforts, the band embraced comparisons to Violent Soho and Nirvana, and Baltimore is no exception. Grungy riffs and harsh, gritty vocals are exactly what you’ll find here. And lyrically, the track is just as good. Taking inspiration from their experiences (more details in our upcoming interview!), it details the snobbiness of people and the pull of social media, adding a genuine touch.
Baltimore is anthemic, energetic, and gets better with each second—put simply, it’s got all the makings of an Oz classic
While Deadshowws may not be reinventing the wheel, they’ve shown the utmost love and respect to the bands who’ve got them to where they are. It’s clear the four-piece are passionate about what they do, and this is what’s made the track so damn good. Baltimore is anthemic, energetic, and gets better with each second—put simply, it’s got all the makings of an Oz classic.
We’ve got no doubt some will call Deadshowws Diet Soho (or Nirvana Lite), but we’ll just call them criminally underrated. Baltimore isn’t overly complicated, but with nothing to hide behind, the strength of their melodies has shone through. Now, join us as we scream our lungs out to the line, ‘we’re going back to the motherland.’
