Mexican duet Deer have announced their new EP ‘Portraits’. The EP will be available on Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, Soundcloud and Bandcamp on March 2, 2018. You can watch the video for Wild Eyes via YouTube below, which is lifted from the EP.
‘Portraits’ is a series of imaginary stories that emerge from our experience as Hong Kong residents. It embraces contrasting characters… a middle age man, a six year old kid. Each song represents one piece of a big puzzle: the face of what Hong Kong is to us. Life here is a drama of an ancestral life structure struggling with the western post modern crisis. We start with a dissertation about immigration and we close with the face of the ambition. The sound of this EP glides from nostalgic to dramatic moments, all dressed with the strident electronic layers and the glimpse of string sections.
