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.”
