"A massive, psych‐heavy, art‐damaged four piece, and one of the most inspired new bands we’ve heard in quite a while... not to mention their absolutely fucking insane live shows." – Pitchfork

Finally, Atlanta’s Deerhunter are coming to Australia.

Deerhunter began in 2001 with the ambition of fusing the lulling hypnotic states induced by ambient and minimalist music with the klang and propulsion of garage rock. Since then, the band has weathered chaotic line‐up changes, the death of a member and much discouragement, to emerge in the past two years as an unchallenged tenant of pop avantgarde, capturing listens the world wide.

The band creates songs in a psychophysical multitrack stream of‐consciousness rush but their most compelling asset is a penchant for unpredictability. No two performances are the same; rather the group's cerebral fingerprint shines through constantly morphing presentations.

Their live performances almost always leave audiences indoctrinated, having been referred to by Karen O of the yeah yeah yeah’s in NME as bordering on “a religious experience.”

Deerhunter have just completed a European tour where they played shows with Liars as well as festival slots at Pitchfork vs All Tomorrow’s Parties and Primavera.
