Label: Practise Music
Released: 4th June 2021
British post-punk is inundated at the moment – a spoken word boys club with its foot firmly in beige, but East London trio deep tan are firmly rocking the boat with much-needed melange.
The band’s debut EP is a seductive and suspense-building voyage, where jaunty angular guitars juxtapose misfit roguery with an air of pretentious cool. 90s and 80s alt is an obvious sonic reference point, but subtle electronics throughout eye up the future, and offer flickers of something more.
With a sonic palette built on trepidation, deep tan are crafting music that’s just as uneasy as it is palatable – an exciting concoction where it’s anyone’s guess as to what will follow.
