‘rudy ya ya ya’ is pure deep tan: spiky guitars above a driving rhythm section and a sharp, detached vocal. The band explain: “Caught with your pants down, brown ooze slides down a furrowed brow as sacha interrupts — ! (aka the rudy giuliani diss track you never asked for)”

deep tan dazzle with this obscure, complex composition which captures deep tan‘s insatiable energy from start to finish. The new track allows this immersive structure to showcase the very best of deep tan, meandering through these hypnotic passages and abrasive outbursts. The beats and gritty tones channel this conflicting creation elevated by the melodic vocal harmonies.

The angular attributes, spiraling beats, and the almighty punchy bass tones harness this infectious quality, deep tan build up their exploration to the ferocious final crescendo proudly showcasing that fierce touch and immersive energy. deep tan leads the way with their impeccable array of growling hooks.

As we’ve stated before, deep tan are just unapologetic, they’ve got this fearless mentality and freedom within their vision, of which emits effortlessly within their unconventional, ardent soundscapes.

Since they released their debut EP ‘creeping speedwells’ last year to widespread critical acclaim, deep tan have been winning over legions of fans with their unique brand of post-punk; never afraid of challenging the establishment, their songs are politically astute and socially conscious but never preachy. It’s a potent blend that has seen the band thrust to the forefront of the chasing pack with a string of fine releases and a subversive punk spirit. The band then went on to release a Dan Carey produced single with legendary label Speedy Wunderground, ‘tamu’s yiffing refuge’, a stripped down, driving track that once again proves less is more.

deep tan make music that emerges from the fatalistic side of life with a flash of cynicism and a rumble of venomous intent. Their stripped-back, minimal sound is a vehicle for songs that engage with contemporary themes, from deepfake revenge pornography to surreal meme pages and stories of furry hedonism.

The band are hitting the road hard this spring with a host of shows supporting Bodega and Bambara culminating in their first UK wide headline tour – all dates below.
