Following their uplifting last single ‘camelot‘, and with acclaim from the likes of NME, So Young and BBC 6Music, Hackney-based trio deep tan have now shared another stirring taste of what’s to come from their upcoming debut EP.
Propelled by glitchy beats and whirring, twinkling hooks, ‘hollow scene’ captivates the ears with the vocals’ compelling seductive allure. Flowing with fuzzed-out shades of ’90s trip-hop, whilst maintaining its own unique sparkling edge and gently haunting majesty, it’s another truly spellbinding offering from the trio, oozing an exquisite rousing splendour. Of the track, the band explain:
“‘hollow scene’ is about the feeling of having to move through life with a certain level of detachment in order to function. Gatekeeping empathy for the sake of an easy life, if you will. It’s a pretty draining business, though, and can make any real search for meaning feel futile. Meursault was wrong and he was right. Robert Smith, however, is always right.“
‘hollow scene’ is out now, and is taken from deep tan’s upcoming EP, Creeping Speedwells, set for release on 4th June via Practise Music.
