Release New Video For Their Single

‘rudy ya ya ya’

London based, subversive post-punk trio deep tan are releasing the video for their single, ‘rudy ya ya ya’ – the first known diss track to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, with a distinctly angular and immersive energy. As a summer packed with festivals – with deep tan drawing praise from the likes of The Guardian and The Times – draws to a close, the band offer up a visual accompaniment to their single which is pure deep tan: spiky guitars above a driving rhythm section and a sharp, detached vocal.

Director Stringer explains: “RUDY YA YA YA allowed me to fully realize my Island of Dr.Mareau by way of the Blair Witch fantasy and was a perfect opportunity to flex my Digital Bolex’s muscles with manic handheld movements and gritty psychedelic textures. The end product is a haunted fever dream of a video and It’s the most fun I’ve had in the middle of nowhere at night in a long time.”

The band continue: “for our rudy video we enlisted the help of stringer to direct, who caught our eye online with their excellent creeped-out gorefest references, which led to a very entertaining 12hrs in epping forest”

deep tan dazzle with this obscure, complex composition that 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.

The ‘diamond horsetail’ EP features previous singles ‘beginners’ krav maga’and‘rudy ya ya ya’, the former of which is a dark and haunting track with dissonant guitars in response to the idea that women should take self defence classes.

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.

the last two years have seen the band featured in NME, DIY, Clash, Loud and Quiet, The Quietus, So Young, Notion, Dork, Brooklyn Vegan and more, with their music playlisted at BBC 6Music and Amazing Radio, and garnering plays on Apple Music Beats1, Radio X, SiriusXM, KEXP, BBC Wales and Amazing Radio USA. Steve Lamacq also made the band his BBC 6Music Spotlight Artist in May 2021.

Taut, seductive and enthralling – deep tan channel legendary indie heroes like The SlitsYoung Marble Giants and The Raincoats with influences from contemporaries and peers like Folly Group and Dry Cleaning to create something that is undeniably their own.
