Deer Scout Covers Kate Bush’s ‘Suspended in Gaffa’

    Dena Miller, who records under the moniker Deer Scout, has shared her cover of Kate Bush’s 1982 track ‘Suspended in Gaffa’. Check out a video for it, featuring animation by Corrinne James, below, along with Miller’s upcoming tour dates.

    “‘Suspended in Gaffa’ is my favorite Kate Bush song,” Miller said in a statement (via Stereogum). “I love the drama and the playfulness of the lyrics, they feel absurd and sincere at the same time. ‘I don’t know why I’m crying’ has always really gotten to me, and I love that it goes from that to ‘It’s a plank in me eye with a camel whose trying to get through it.’ I also admire her ownership over the production and arrangement of her songs. The original really feels like one person’s vision, which makes sense because she played piano, strings and produced it herself.”

    Miller previously included a rendition of ‘Suspended in Gaffa’ on 2019’s tour stop at all nite diner. Deer Scout’s debut studio LP, Woodpecker, arrived earlier this year via Carpark. Read our Artist Spotlight interview with Deer Scout.
