Deers - Orange EP
For all the gentle, delicate natural connotations of their name, Deers sure know how to pack a punch. Their latest EP, Orange, opens with a salvo of punchy guitars on Sleep.Recover before it settles back into a more subdued groove. The choruses however, remain resolutely upbeat - fist raised volleys of passion.
This latest EP is the third in a series of colour-coded releases (preceded by Green and Red) and is being given an exclusive release of 250 physical copies on the band's official store.
What Deers accomplish on Orange is a brooding mass of sonic textures, a band clearly aware of their sound and image - willing to push it to the limits in an effort to better themselves. It makes for a lean, powerful release reminiscent of Foals at their tantalisingly skilled best.
