East London seven-piece psych-pop collective This Is The Deep have announced that their debut EP ‘The Best Is Yet To Come (Part 1)’ is set to arrive on 21st May alongside sharing new single ‘Glass’!
“The song is about the idea of falling and the feeling of something foreboding happening as the result of over-reaching,” the band explain. “There are different ways to interpret the lyrics; they can apply to the excesses of late capitalism, our unbalanced position with the natural world, as well as a relationship between two people. The focus on falling and impact could also be seen to be a metaphor for a human position of being in some way always falling towards something, some conclusion or unknown destination. Maybe ultimately the fall is part of what we are, as Buzz Lightyear says maybe we’re not flying but ‘falling with style’.”
Speaking about the accompanying video, they add, “It’s kind of a retelling of Humpty Dumpty but instead of an egg there’s this bald muscly action-man figure and instead of falling and cracking he gets sucked into another world through his TV. He falls into a plasticine Loony-Toons inspired landscape haunted by a mysterious cowboy with pop-corn eyes where pop-corn clouds hang in the sky. We’re interested in working with the tropes of visual media and popular culture and how they affect the way we perceive and ultimately construct the world. David Greaber’s quote that ‘The ultimate hidden truth of the world is it is something we make and could just as easily make differently’ sums this up for us pretty well.”
