East London group, deep tan, have released their newest track, ‘hollow scene’; the final single from their upcoming debut EP ‘creeping speedwells’, which is set for release in June.

Written about “the feeling of having to move through life with a certain level of
detachment in order to function”
, ‘hollow scene’ features crawling instrumentals and murmuring vocals, following the same mesmerising – almost cryptic -melodic cycles that have characterised the band’s previous work.

Heavily inspired by post-punk, deep tan’s previous single, ‘camelot’, took a heavier approach, focusing in on zipping guitars and pounding basslines.

Having previously played with the likes of Squid and Crumb, the trio are set to support Leeds group Yard Act on tour later this year, alongside performing at Oxford’s Truck Festival and Leeds’ This Must Be The Place Festival.
