The Hong Kong based electro-rock duo Deer revealed their latest track on the 1st.
Wild Eyes is more guitar orientated than music of theirs previously while retaining the underpinning of electronica allowing them to deliver a song which fills the room in a deep-purple haze as the mesmeric vocal takes the spotlight.
It has been a year since the Hong Kong based trip-hop duo Deer were introduced.
Their first song of the year has been made available as a live video.
I Want It All has everything in it that makes Deer such a fascinating duo. Like slowly moving trebuchets being wheeled to the castle walls the looping electronic beats dispassionately rotate round the ears, whilst the voice circles around the head in equal menace before distorted guitar joins in to the rising sense of the impending siege of deafening silence and for me, the palpable pounding in the ears that results when the sounds abruptly stop, forms part of the track.
Deer is the trip-hop duo of Adriana Martinez and Miguel Bastida originally from Mexico now Hong Kong based.
Deer – eponymous EP – artwork
From a training in classical music Deer has been able to stride the great divide to trip-hop and deliver compositions that elegantly glide around the room in elegant sweeps of floating textures.
With tracks ranging from the dance-floor to the chill-out room Deer is able to provide the listener with compositions that regardless of tempo are full of elements which they bring together into an unhurried loop of sound that transfixes the mind. The nature of the out-put gives the music a translucence that glows deeper as tracks develop.
As you know I often refer to three minutes as being all that is needed for almost all music, the duo deliver pieces that I just want to run for many an hour as they glissade elegantly into the brain.
Hit play and time will stand still as Deer fuse their understanding of symphonia and switch it to producing an ambient back-drop for the audience to become entranced.
The eponymous EP by Deer that came out on the 15th is available on bandcamp through Metal Postcard Records.
