Deep Tan

Creeping Speedwells


More great stuff coming from Practise Music, who also bought us Squid and Delmer D.

Deep Tan make music that draws on the traditions of post-punk and new wave but with a distinctly modern take on the genres. their stripped-back, minimal sound is a vehicle for songs that engage with contemporary themes, from deepfake (and revenge) pornography in coldwave-influenced ‘deepfake’ to the quarantine drinking session to end all drinking sessions in ‘camelot’.

Shedding the atmospherics of earlier releases in favour of a darker, more driving sound, this evolution is developed further on their upcoming ‘creeping speedwells’ EP, which expands the band’s range to include psych textures and german experimental elements.

The last two years have seen the band featured in NME, DIY, Clash, Loud and Quiet, So Young, Notion, Dork, Brooklyn Vegan and more, with their music playlisted at BBC Radio 6Music and Amazing Radio, and garnering plays on Apple Music Beats1, Radio X, BBC Wales and Amazing Radio USA.

Hailing from the swamps of east london, deep tan are part of the city’s thriving post-punk scene, having shared stages with acts like Squid, PREGOBLIN, Yard Act, Sinead O’Brien, Jessica Winter, Claw Marks, Nuha Ruby Ra and more.
