Dirty Hit signing Deaton Chris Anthony has shared new single ‘Behind The Lockers With Hunter’.
A musician and visual artist, the emphatically creative newcomer has linked arms with Dirty Hit, prepping a brand new project. Out on July 29th, new album ‘SID THE KID’ presents his creative vision in widescreen, merging real-life observations with wild fiction.
He explains: “I draw inspiration from childhood. I have an older brother, Korbin. This record is dedicated to him. We would drive in the country in Kansas with the sunroof open. We’d listen to Dashboard Confessional, a lot of emo stuff, and he would scream the lyrics, looking up at the stars. That’s where SID THE KID takes place: rural Kansas.”
“Imagine this: I was a chubby ten-year-old, and my nickname was Sid the Kid. Korbin and I lived in this little shed in the middle of this forest. This shed had our computer, T.V. and all of our music gear. We’d walk to school nearby, and we hung out at the skate park and the bowling alley.”
Out later this month, the album is trailed by vivid new single ‘Behind The Lockers With Hunter’. A bizarro alt-pop moment, the track seems to delight in offering surprises at every turn.
Deaton says: “This moment of the album is all about live dichotomy. A whole room yelling about not fitting in is as angsty as it gets”.
