Deeper

Chicago, IL

Deeper’s Origins date back to 2014 when prior to releasing any material an abrupt line-up change left the Chicago based band looking for a new direction. Singer and guitarist Nic Gohl along with childhood friend guitarist Mike Clawson and drummer Shiraz Bhatti threw out all of their old songs and brought on bassist Drew McBride to round out the lineup. The subsequent demos leaned on intricate guitar interplay direct “of the times” vocals and a spirit that speaks to the band’s collective place in this pit of endless internet.Deeper honed their sound over the course of 2015 & 16’ in basements lofts and anywhere that would have them. Touring the demos and landing at a fully realized inflection point. Call it Post-Punk call it Indie Rock it’s a record that steps in and out of boxes filtered through an unmistakable midwestern lens. As social norms and political ideologies distort writing and creating art was the only way to control the growing voice in the band’s collective head.
