In the lead-up to their debut EP, expected in the coming months, The Deep Blue continue to cement their harmony-driven, delicate sound on “Inside My Head”.
Manchester-natives The Deep Blue are softly carving out their niche with a uniquely current take on indie-folk. Their focus on three-part harmonies adds effortless depth to every track whilst maintaining the subtlety of their uncomplicated instrumentals.
After releasing tracks “Jealous Sea” and “He Said She Said” last year during the global lockdown, the trio also wrote and recorded material fit for their debut EP alongside producer Alex Quinn.

The hypnotic harmonies pull the listener into their sonic world while vocals wrap around the gentle strumming of the guitars - layering up to evoke the swirling, overthinking puddle of feelings that The Deep Blue are singing about.
The instrumentals are groovy, but without detracting from the mood set by the vocals – this is a band who are very clever about their construction, and it makes for a captivating listen.

It was our first time working with Alex Quinn and, I guess, we didn’t know what to expect but 20 minutes in and the ideas were already rolling.”
“I think we worked until about midnight the first day, fuelled by a squillion cups of tea and chocolate digestives (rock’n’roll). Oh, and welsh cakes. When we had the track down we were all dancing around the live room like maniacs. I think we nearly broke the sofa..."
