Deer Johnson Support Moulettes on UK Tour
Swizz Duo To Release ‘Another Day’ This Winter
Two guitars, two voices, simple beats. The result is intimate and thought provoking, the formula non-formulaic. Deer Johnson are winning the love of audiences across Europe, and for the first time the duo are coming to the UK in support of a new single, ‘Another Day’ due for release on Monday 8th December. The track espouses all their core values in a relaxed, melancholic timbre with an upbeat edge.
A huge part of those values is to travel and meet new people, using their music to get there. They are especially excited to come to the UK, partially because their upcoming tour dates see them support folk favourites Moulettes. The duo had this to say:
“It is an honour for us to be performing with Moulettes in December, because the band have such a great reputation. We think our sound will complement them in support nicely and think the shows are going to be very special”
Hand on heart, Deer Johnson are the real deal. Hailing from Basel, Switzerland, the two friends have united through a shared passion to re-discover music and the world, to move forward in life bringing new experiences and a fresh take on their creative ideas each day at a time. Their songs are written for the enjoyment of their art form and the expression of their ideals and feelings – without any superficial mainstream pandering. It’s Philippe and Toby, no more, no less.
Their collective name is literally thus: a combination of their individual monikers. Philippe Deer and Toby Johnson both perform acoustic guitar, vocals and percussion.
New single ‘Another Day’ is released on Monday 8th December 2014 – check out the video:
