On the telly: Deerhunter transform ‘Living My Life’ for Colbert

Deerhunter transform ‘Living My Life’ for Colbert

Bradford Cox brings bongos and sax to a highlight from ‘Fading Frontier’.

Deerhunter were the special guests on last night’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and someone’s been listening to lounge-y soft rock.

The group transformed their ‘Living My Life’ track for the show, lending saxophone and bongo drums to the ‘Fading Frontier’ cut.

It’s a far cry from the delicate, plucked original that appears on last year’s LP. Bradford Cox wears a fedora, too. It really is a very different Deerhunter, on this telly appearance.

Catch Bradford and the lads at Barcelona Primavera Sound (2nd-4th June), Nos Primavera Sound Porto (9th-11th June) and Field Day London (11th-12th June).
