Track Of The Day: deep tan – ‘camelot’

Following the bewitching sounds of last year’s poignant ‘deep fake’ and with acclaim from the likes of So Young, NME, The Quietus and BBC 6Music, Hackney-based trio deep tan have now announced the release of their debut EP.

Taken from the EP, the band have now shared new single ‘camelot’. Propelled by the majestic whirr of sparse hooks and throbbing beats, it builds with a quirky hypnotic splendour and fizzing tension, with shades of the playful jangle-fuzz of the likes of Stereo Total. Conjuring memories of heavy nights out in dingy music venues that we’re all missing so much right now, as swooning vocals glide across the angular soundscape, ‘camelot’ creates an eerily infectious offering; another truly captivating sonic cacophony from the post-punk trio that will leave you longing for more of their exquisite stirring allure.

Of the track, the band explain:

‘camelot’ is an unashamed tribute to ‘the sesh’. a group of people have just been evicted with only 48hrs notice, leading them to have one last rager in order to forget about the stress of not finding a new home with such short notice. coming in at less than two minutes, the frenetic energy of the track sets the scene for total obliteration…

‘camelot’ is accompanied by a home-made video – a ‘visualisation of 21st June’ featuring footage from parties, weddings and raves. Watch now!

‘camelot’ is out now, listen on Spotify. And deep tan’s debut EP, creeping speedwells, is set for release on 4th June.
