deep tan move into view with new numbers ‘shimmer’ and ‘constant inconsistencies’

It’s the Hackney trio’s first new music since releasing ‘air’ earlier in the year

Introducing themselves in mesmeric style, deep tan have dropped two new cuts in the form of ‘shimmer’ and ‘constant inconsistencies’

Making a name for themselves across London this year, the double A-side welcomes them proper. Showing off two different sides to the trio, ‘shimmer’ boasts a hypnotic ease while ‘constant inconsistencies’ kicks something altogether rawer to the front. With early comparisons to Warpaint and Foals – it’s easy to see why things are looking bright for ’em. 

Talking of ‘shimmer’, deep tan noted it’s about “Surface-level people with malice that runs deep. People who operate with cruel intentions, who mask their agenda with a pretty convincing, shiny veneer.” Meanwhile ‘constant inconsistencies’ is ‘about someone who isn’t there for you when you need them, whether that’s for support in a serious crisis or just for a pint’.

“It’s a commonly felt thing, everyone has had someone where they’ve thought – You love them, but where the fuck are they??”

deep tan are set to support Phobophobes tonight (October 17th) at Werkhaus in London, before another support slot with Crumb at The Dome on December 3rd.
