It's called dreampop Deary


London-based dreampop duo deary gather together three rides on their hugely acclaimed debut single ‘Fairground’ for a new EP, which is released on a limited-edition green vinyl 10” as well as digitally on May 5. ‘Fairground’ was initially released at the end of January and it was amazing to watch people fall in love with it in real time. To date, it has been played everywhere from BBC Radio 6 Music to KEXP in Seattle and Double J in Australia. It was a Hot One on John Kennedy’s X-Posure show on Radio X and has been playlisted on Amazing Radio. There has also been amazing coverage courtesy of Clash, Brooklyn Vegan, Atwood Magazine, God Is In The TV, Far Out and more. A limited-edition run of 7”s sold out in just two hours. The new EP will be more widely available and features a new remix by Saint Etienne, alongside two very different reworkings by the band themselves.The Extended Mix stretches out the trip-hop grooves of the original for a longer, more immersive listen, while the Hide In Glass Mix is a much darker affair.

“It was fun putting the guitars down for once, playing around with different synths instead,” says Ben, one half of deary. “There’s a bit of ‘Love’s Easy Tears’ in there, but equally there’s something to tap your feet to, which is what it’s all about isn’t it?” The Saint Etienne remix was inspired by the original track’s slow and low 98bpm shuffle, which was reminiscent of the post-club comedown tracks collected on last year’s Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs-curated Fell From The Sun compilation. “I got into ‘Foxbase Alpha’ in a big way while studying at Goldsmiths via the Dusty Springfield sample on ‘Nothing Can Stop Us’,” says Ben on why Saint Etienne were dream remixers. “I love that record; the drum samples and the pop sensibilities were a real inspiration for both ‘Fairground’ and deary as a whole. “We absolutely love their reworking of ‘Fairground’, it’s really trippy and such a joy to have them work on our stuff. A thousand thank yous to them and Augustin.”

Drift Recommends

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
