Deerhoof Share New Single ‘Phase-Out All Remaining Non-Miracles by 2028’

    Deerhoof have shared a video for ‘Phase-Out All Remaining Non-Miracles by 2028’, the final preview of their upcoming album Miracle-Level ahead of its release this Friday. It follows previous offerings ‘Sit Down, Let Me Tell You a Story’, ‘My Lovely Cat’, and ‘Wedding, March Flower’. Check out the accompanying visual, created by Italy-based Mexican animator Nespy 5euro and art director Debora Panaccione, below.

    “Through the eons of human existence, trees had souls, mountains told stories, bees whispered secrets to us, the wind helped us make decisions,” Deerhoof reflected in a statement. “The world was literally filled with miracles. 500 years ago, a veritable blip in time, a handful of people tried a brainwashing experiment: make everyone believe the world is actually inert and mechanical. That it’s only there to extract and exploit, and the real goal of life is profit. If some people don’t fall for your scam, enslave or exterminate as needed. Of course the first rule of being a smart parasite is don’t kill your host. As we all can see, they are killing the host. The experiment has failed.”

    The band’s Greg Saunier expanded on this idea in our latest inspirations feature, citing Amitav Ghosh’s The Nutgmeg’s Curse as a reference point. Read the interview here.
