Chicago band Deeper have signed to Sub Pop, and they've just released their first single for the label."Sub" is straight-ahead indie rock, with pops of punk and new wave in its guitar and drums. The band shared:

‘Sub’ was in the trash can for a minute. We recorded it in 2021 at a slower tempo before realizing it didn’t work. It was built again from the ground up, this time with a much faster tempo and different dynamics. The nice thing about iterating on songs over the pandemic was having time to revisit old ideas – the song even features a guitar part from the first recorded Deeper song that we ended up discarding. Lyrics jump around events from the last few years, often reflecting on the past and present. The video functions as a vessel for us to reference characters from past videos, showing them stuck in a loop, in a purgatory where they’re waiting to move on to whatever is coming next.

The band are now working on their full-length debut on Sub Pop, out later this year. Check out the video for "Sub" below.

Deeper have also shared tour dates, including their appearances at Kilby Block Party, Pitchfork Fest, and opening for Future Islands. All dates below.
