This song is perfectly lovely but I will say – it’s NOT one of my favorite new Deer Tick tunes. It’s really the lyrics and the visuals here that I want to share with you. You could watch it muted… even with no sound, this video has A LOT of power. It’s beautifully shot, and as always, John McCauley’s words seem to nail what we all feel in a simple way that we can all understand:
*Deer Tick is a RI-based band currently nominated for several
New England Music Awards – you can VOTE HERE until 1/31!*
I’ve seen Deer Tick perform several times over the years and I never quite felt the excitement I hope to feel. Their music can be LOUD. It can be hard-edged, so to speak. This new album, despite it’s title, has a lot of lighter material that I absolutely love. I wonder if the change in sound is disappointing to their older fans…but it’s certainly gained some new ones…
“The Dream’s In The Ditch”
Here’s a new single from Deer Tick’s forthcoming album Negativity (out on 9/24). I’m happily surprised to hear these guys polish their sound up a bit…it’s a bit softer and lighter and it’ll sound great on mvyradio. I’d imagine some hardcore fans could be disappointed for the same reason. Can’t wait to get the full release in my hands to fully hear how their sound has evolved.
