It’s always a pleasure to find a message from Deer in the inbox.

This time it was in relation to the new single, Alive. It’s classic Deer, mixing trip-hoppy sounds with deep bass and flashes of light. Deer are Mexican, but based in Hong Kong and the EP from which Alive is taken, Portraits, is “a series of¬†imaginary stories that emerge from our experience as Hong Kong residents. It embraces contrasting characters… a middle age man, a six year old kid. Each song represents one piece of a big puzzle: the face of what Hong Kong is to us.”
