NY native Dena Miller has been releasing music for six years as Deer Scout, and now she's announced the project's debut LP, Woodpecker, due out April 8 via Carpark Records. She's also shared the first single, "Cowboy," a twee folk track accompanied by a charmingly lo-fi video filmed in Coney Island which you can watch below.

"'Cowboy' is based on the movie Midnight Cowboy," Miller says. "It was written in a house in Ohio where the driveway was off a sharp bend on the highway, so if you were approaching it from the opposite side, you had to make a blind left turn into the gap in between the yellow turning arrows. It’s a song about feeling like you’re one step behind everybody else, like a small fish in a big pond, and being a little bit naive."

Deer Scout has a few album release shows for Woodpecker coming up in April, in NYC (Rubulad on April 8), Washington DC (The Pocket on April 9), and Philadelphia (PhilaMOCA on April 10).
