Deeper Release New Single ‘Tele’

    Deeper have unveiled a new single, ‘Tele’, taken from their upcoming LP and first for Sub Pop, Careful!. It’s the third preview of the album, following ‘Build a Bridge’ and ‘Sub’. Check out its accompanying video below.

    “’Tele’ is a song without its shield,” the band said in a press release. “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,” they added. “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.”

    Careful! is set to come out on September 8.
