Dylan Moon’s previous single “10 Apples” found the LA-based singer and producer working at the intersection of trance-like electronica and existential sophisti-pop, and his new single “Deep Time” follows suit. Inspired by a book chapter he never read (story of my life, tbh), the track plays like dance music for another dimension, with Moon striking a careful balance of wonder and terror as he mourns a “month of Sundays gone” and warns of “giants swimming deep.”

“‘Deep Time’ is a chapter title from the book LSD and the Mind of the Universe: Diamonds From Heaven by Christopher M. Bache, PhD,” explains Moon. “I didn’t read that chapter, but Bache’s dubbing of alternate time states is catchy, sort of like the phrase ‘month of Sundays’ is, and I think ideas of time become more/less relevant during a mass extinction such as this one.”

The song features backing vocals from Ruth Kace and arrives with a self-directed visual that documents an underwater dance party for one. “Deep Time” and “10 Apples” will both appear on Moon’s sophomore album Option Explore—out June 17 via RVING Intl.—which follows his 2019 debut Only the Blues.
