Dial M For Murder sind David und Andy aus Schweden. Im August erschien ihr großartiges Debütalbum “ Fiction Of Her Dreams” auf Tapete Records. Die roh produzierten Songs auf der Platte sorgen durch ihre subtile Zerrissenheit genau für den “thrilling moment” à la Hitchcock. Live erleben kann man Dial M for Murder am Sonntag, den 22. November im Ponyhof in Frankfurt am Main. Dort wird die Bedroomdisco ürbigens David und Andy nochmal persönlich zum Interview treffen. UND soviel sei verraten, das Konzert wird an diesem Blog auch im Nachhinein nicht spurlos vorbeigehen! Seid also gespannt. Jetzt aber erstmal das Bedroomdisco Interview mit Dial M For Murder!

What is the story behind your band name?
