Psych-pop duo Deer Friends strut a hooky, harmonious rock and power-pop cohesion on new single “Settle Down,” a single from their new album, out December 15th. The Grand Rapids-based project of Seth Boles and Tommy Muldowney show a charming immediacy in the timeless-feeling production. The “I wanna settle down with you,” yearning gears into a peppier power-pop suaveness, marked by the “stay up all night,” sequence — which struts a charming throwback rock disposition, as talk-y guitars linger in between. “Settle Down” has us firmly anticipating the duo’s new album.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2023’ Spotify playlist.
