Chicago band Deeper have signed to Sub Pop, marking the announcement with the new single ‘Sub’. Check out a video for it below.
“‘Sub’ was in the trash can for a minute,” the band shared in a statement. “We recorded it in 2021 at a slower tempo before realizing it didn’t work. It was built again from the ground up, this time with a much faster tempo and different dynamics. The nice thing about iterating on songs over the pandemic was having time to revisit old ideas – the song even features a guitar part from the first recorded Deeper song that we ended up discarding.”
“Lyrics jump around events from the last few years, often reflecting on the past and present,” they continued. “The video functions as a vessel for us to reference characters from past videos, showing them stuck in a loop, in a purgatory where they’re waiting to move on to whatever is coming next.”
