Sub Pop has announced the recruitment of Chicago band Deeper to its label roster. To celebrate this pivotal occasion, the group has shared an official video for their new single “Sub.”
The band says about the single and video: “‘Sub’ was in the trash can for a minute. We recorded it in 2021 at a slower tempo before realizing it didn’t work. It was built again from the ground up, this time with a much faster tempo and different dynamics. The nice thing about iterating on songs over the pandemic was having time to revisit old ideas – the song even features a guitar part from the first recorded Deeper song that we ended up discarding. Lyrics jump around events from the last few years, often reflecting on the past and present. The video functions as a vessel for us to reference characters from past videos, showing them stuck in a loop, in a purgatory where they’re waiting to move on to whatever is coming next.”

Deeper is currently working on its Sub Pop debut, which will be available later this year. In the meantime, the band will embark on a 15-date run beginning on Wednesday, May 10th, in Omaha, NE, at Reverb Lounge, with additional shows in Salt Lake City, Denver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Cleveland, Atlanta, and Orlando. Deeper will also appear at this year's Pitchfork Music Festival in their home city of Chicago.
