Deerhunter - Release New Single 'Timebends'
Deerhunter : Release New Single 'Timebends'
31st October 2019

On 12th September this year, Deerhunter of Atlanta, Georgia spent a night in New York recording ‘Timebends’, a 12-minute opus that is released today.

Listen to ‘Timebends’ here.

A separate entity to their eighth studio album Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, ‘Timebends’ is a partly improvised stream-of-consciousness outpouring.  Recorded live direct to tape and in one take with minimal overdubs and mastered using a completely analogue signal chain, ‘Timebends’ recalls Deerhunter’s early avant-garde recordings and reaffirms their position as one of this generation’s most dynamic live acts.   

‘Timebends’ [12.38]

Bradford Cox – Guitar, Clavinet, Vocals
Josh McKay – Bass, Omni Synth
Javier Morales – Piano, Celeste
Moses Archuleta – Drums
Emilio Zef China – Violin 

Composed by Bradford Cox
Produced and mixed by Dana Wachs
Mastered by Heba Kadry
Engineered by Nolan Theis
Additional Engineering by Andy Plovnick
Recorded at Bunker Studio, Brooklyn, NY on 12th September 2019

“One of today’s great American bands… Some of Deerhunter’s prettiest songs to date.” - Uncut 8/10
“One of the great guitar bands of the 21st century, with a catalog full of wild highs, deep sorrows, searing rages, and precisely zero bad albums. Their eighth LP, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, continues that streak.” - Rolling Stone​
“Their poppiest, most direct album yet.” - Q ****​
“Solid-gold tunes.” MOJO ****
“This is how you turn pop into art.” - NME ****​
