About this item

London based, subversive post-punk trio deep tan are back with their new single, ‘rudy ya ya ya’ and news of their sophomore EP, ‘diamond horsetail’.

Alongside this, the band are also releasing a Dinked Edition which features ‘diamond horsetail’ and previous EP ‘creeping speedwells’ exclusively pressed together on ‘piss kink yellow’ vinyl, limited to 400 copies.

‘rudy ya ya ya’ is pure deep tan: spiky guitars above a driving rhythm section and a sharp, detached vocal. The band explain: “Caught with your pants down, brown ooze slides down a furrowed brow as sacha interrupts — ! (aka the rudy giuliani diss track you never asked for)”

Since they released their debut EP ‘creeping speedwells’ last year to widespread critical acclaim, deep tan have been winning over legions of fans with their unique brand of post-punk; never afraid of challenging the establishment, their songs are politically astute and socially conscious but never preachy. It’s a potent blend that has seen the band thrust to the forefront of the chasing pack with a string of fine releases and a subversive punk spirit. The band then went on to release a Dan Carey produced single with legendary label Speedy Wunderground, ‘tamu’s yiffing refuge’, a stripped down, driving track that once again proves less is more.

deep tan make music that emerges from the fatalistic side of life with a flash of cynicism and a rumble of venomous intent. Their stripped-back, minimal sound is a vehicle for songs that engage with contemporary themes, from deepfake revenge pornography to surreal meme pages and stories of furry hedonism.
