PREMIERE: Deer Leap – “Wind and Words”
Today we’re excited to premiere “Wind and Words”, the excellent new single from New Hampshire emo/post-rock quartet Deer Leap. A follow-up to the band’s great 2016 LP, Impermanence, “Wind and Words” finds the band continuing in that album’s tuneful, more economic vein. Recorded by Chris Teti of The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, the song is bright and expansive, buoyed by its rumbling bass even as its guitars arc upward. Clocking in at under 3 minutes and making equal room for the band’s long-running gift for texture and its growing melodicism, “Wind and Words” is our first listen from the band’s forthcoming EP of the same name, which Deer Leap is set to release digitally via its bandcamp on June 9 with a handmade CD pressing to follow.
