One fairly average Madrid afternoon last month, pals Ana Garcia Perrote and Carlotta Cosials disappeared into a recording studio, and stepped out clutching two of the most perfectly ramshackle pop songs we’ve heard in ages. Say hi to Deers, and their sticky sweet debut demo “Bamboo”/“Trippy Gum”.
Think Honeyblood but way more raw, think Cults but leaner, no, fucking starving, and banging down the door with their heart-bursting harmonies and surfy riffs.
“Bamboo” is a Wolf Alice-underwater pop song, pumped full of squall, reverb, twanging guitars, and cantering beats. “Trippy Gum” is precisely that: swirling psych, executed with a bubbly, floaty lightness of touch, and plenty of bratty punk asides. If this is what these two can come up with on a whim, we’re totally freaking out at the thought of a proper single.
