Track Of The Day – deep tan – ‘Air’

Currently making a name for themselves across the London live scene with their immersive live shows, Hackney trio deep tan have now shared their spellbinding new single.

Flowing with alluring, swirling hooks and rich, swooning vocals, accompanied by pounding beats, ‘Air’ is a beguiling slice of alt-pop, sparkling with a delicate hypnotic grace. With shades of early Warpaint, it interweaves layers of dreamy sounds, leaving it impossible not to become completely hooked on deep tan’s effervescent charm.

‘Air’s sparkling haze is depicted perfectly in the beautifully shot accompanying psychedelic video. The video’s directed by audio-visual sister duo Waterbaby, who explain:

The film captures the essence and free-spirited nature of the band and shows their strength, individuality and beauty prevailing in a world that often feels like a hoax… In a void like vacuum, the desire for truth is illustrated through movement, colour and feeling.”

Watch the new video for ‘Air’ here:

Catch deep tan live at Hate Zine’s Issue 6 Launch Party on 20th July at The Ivy House.

Track Of The Day: Deep Tan – ‘Air’

Having previously supported the likes of Madonnatron and Naima Bock from Goat Girl, London’s Hackney-based three piece Deep Tan have spent the last year honing their sound, and have now shared a captivating new single.

A song about deception, ‘Air’ oozes a brooding sense of melancholy and dark sweeping splendour as poignant vocals are sung in both French and English. Exuding a dark, ethereal aura and twinkling dreamy haze, it’s a truly beguiling slice of atmospheric alt-pop. Of the track, the band explain:

“The song is about islanders who lie about being able to swim, and they’re a metaphor for people who lie generally. They pretend they can swim, but they can’t. It’s meaningless. It’s just… ‘Air’.”
