"Weird", "heavy", and "melancholic" is how UK quartet Dead Space Chamber Music characterize their music. Their pool of influences includes renaissance music, doom, dark ambient, and folk, resulting in what they describe as "medieval dance music".

I spoke with Dead Space Chamber Music vocalist Ellen Southern, guitarist Tom Bush, and drummer/percussionist Katie Murt about what brought them together, and how their backgrounds shaped DSCM's sound. We also discussed the amount of improvisation in their performances and recordings, as well as how the concept of their latest album The Black Hours reflected their experiences during Covid lockdowns.

My thanks to Ellen, Tom, and Katie for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
