On September 8, Deeper will release Careful!, their new full-length album and Sub Pop debut. To celebrate the news, the band has shared the propulsive and diamond-sharp post-punk single and accompanying video “Build a Bridge.” Careful! was recorded at Palisade Studios in Chicago with help from producer/engineer Dave Vettraino (Makaya McCraven, Lala Lala), and this 13-track collection of new songs finds the band expanding its scope into previously uncharted territories.
“‘Build a Bridge’ was the first song written remotely in a new format that would come to define the writing process of Careful!,” Deeper shared about the new track. “In the early days of the band, we would throw shit at the wall in our practice space and see what stuck. Being forced to stay in our apartments during lockdown allowed us to apply more intention to a song and really dissect it piece by piece.”
Of the visual, they added: “We worked with Austin Vesely on the video in which the band is hooked up to a machine, taking turns controlling alternate versions of ourselves in a different dimension. The sequence keeps repeating with each of us failing, but each attempt equips us with more knowledge from these prior failures to eventually succeed in vanquishing the spirit.”
