Deeper Premiere New Single/Video “Tele”

Deeper Premiere New Single/Video "Tele"

Chicago post punk/indie rock band Deeper have premiered their new single “Tele” and its accompanying video.

The track is taken from their third studio album ‘Careful!‘, set to be released on September 8 via Sub Pop Records. Pre-order it here.

Careful! finds the band reshaping facades, splashing color, and sonically testing their limits. There are synth experiments, there are moments of nauseatingly powerful darkwave and coldbeat. There are massive rock’n’roll songs that you can imagine 10,000 people singing along to in some beautiful outdoor setting.

Speaking about the single and video, Deeper said:

”‘Tele’ is a song without its shield. In past Deeper compositions, we would hide behind jerky guitars and abstract vocals telling a story only we could decipher. With ‘Tele’ we wanted to explore the vulnerability behind our music and give focus to the melody and mood of the song. Replacing guitars with synthesizers and drums with samplers we stumbled upon a new way to approach a Deeper song.

We wanted to make a darker track that people could dance to. Since the foundation is built on a sampler beat, it’s the kind of song we could’ve only created with the limitations of the pandemic. The electronic components left more space for the rhythm, so our engineer Dave started playing with a busier bass line for the verses and laid down the hook on the first pass. At the end we wanted the synth parts to constantly overtake one another and hopefully make the listener feel like they’re being swallowed into the song.”
