No ‘Strangers’ to the music industry, Deaf Surf return with their second single to date
Poetic quartet Deaf Surf unveil their second single to the world. ‘Strangers’ storms straight onto the scene in a true post-punk, careless nature.
Bathed in punk sensibilities, there’s a gentle stroke of grunge in the arrangement too. Brighton based Deaf Surf’s songwriting soars through themes of frustration, angst and honest opinions. Providing genuine artistry within the world’s darkness, Strangers couldn’t have come at a more suited time.
Produced and mixed by Bob Weaver at Studio Humbug, ‘Strangers’ will be released worldwide tomorrow via Slingshot Records.
Guitarist Louis May states, “Though I did not write the lyrics, Strangers to me is a song about loneliness, isolation and not fitting in the world. It was written last year before COVID and has been a favourite live, but now seems to have taken on a greater gravitas due to everything that as happened this year. A song for anyone who feels like a stranger”
Punk is one of the only genres that seems to get more honest as the years go by. Becoming a strong asset to the scene, Deaf Surf have the songwriting ability to become the next IDLES.
A song for the outcasts, this feels like a safe haven during the world’s current state.
