deary Release New Single/Video "The Moth"

London dream pop/ethereal/indie pop/shoegaze duo deary have released their new single “The Moth,” and its accompanying video.

The song is out now via Sonic Cathedral and is the first taste of their new EP coming out later this year (TBA). Get it here.

Produced by the band and Iggy B (Spiritualized), and mastered by Simon Scott (Slowdive), the song finds deary going through an appropriately titled metamorphosis. It is dark and direct with howling guitars atop a strident breakbeat – more Curve than Cocteau Twins.

Speaking about it, the band’s Ben Easton said: “We focused a lot on the rhythm and syncopation. Counter melodies and off beat percussion, etc. It’s very dense and immediate, with little room to breathe which adds to the claustrophobia in the subject matter. “

Singer Rebecca “Dottie” Cockram, added: “I wanted to write about being drawn to things which are not good for us. However, that fleeting feeling of immortality is too tempting to fly away from.”

“We decided to create a short film about someone breaking free from a mystical woodland cult,” say the band of the slightly creepy clip. “The result is incredible thanks to Liam and some friends and family who didn’t mind sacrificing their Sunday cavorting in the woods.”

Watch the Liam Beazley directed video now.
