From the coastal charm of Wilmington, North Carolina emerges intriguing electronic duo, Dead Cool. Their namesake, drawn from a Chrome Cranks number, resonates with the unique chemistry of Johnny's multifaceted vocal, synthesizer, and guitar prowess, coupled with Angela Yeagher's bass rhythms and harmonizing vocals. Infused with the evocative notes of darkwave, post-punk, and synthpop, Dead Cool's musical offerings, established since 2020, have been garnering an enthusiastic following both domestically and internationally. Drawing inspiration from the dramatic depths of The Sisters of Mercy, .
and the electric energy of Depeche Mode, Suicide, and The Human League, Dead Cool's compositions come with a wink and a nod to the grand traditions of darkwave, all while fashioning a niche of their own. On American soil, their presence has been notably felt with appearances at notable events like Absolution Fest in Tampa and Dark Castle Fest in Louisville. Their repertoire includes engagements across the American South, from their home state of North Carolina to neighboring regions like South Carolina, Florida, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.
