After the successful release of Do No Harm, you’d imagine most bands would be content to ride that success for a while, but The Deer are not most bands. As an outfit that is always looking to give more than they receive, it only makes sense that, in conjunction with label Keeled Scales, The Deer would waste no time in releasing new music. The two-song ep, Acid Wash | Superstition Mountains, is more of that classic material that folks have come to love from The Deer : vivid singing and songwriting, lush instrumentation and plenty of spirit embedded into the mix. If you’re looking for some songs to kick off summer to, then The Deer have got you covered with this duo.
Watching The Deer go from close friends to local heroes to band on the bubble of stardom has been a pleasant thing to experience from afar. I can attest that the group is still standing behind the values that helped them form and propel towards spreading their good word. Their latest single, Swoon, from their upcoming release Do No Harm, shows growth from the group that I cannot wait to hear be translated into live performance, as it possesses a new found spirit and energy that has been hinted at in the past, but (to my knowledge) never embraced with such force or joy until now. That being said, I continue to be a fan and supporter of The Deer, and I am excited to see where this leg of their journey takes them.
