Righteous London trio deep tan return with ‘xenomorph queen’.
Right from the start, the band have had more going on that most of their post-punk peers. Steeped in queer culture, deep tan’s subversive, jagged take on guitar music has a theatrical edge, relishing a certain alien quality.
From debut EP ‘creeping speedwells’ onwards the group have been impossible to ignore – Josh Homme seems to be a fan, with deep tan supporting Queens Of The Stone Age on their arena tour in the UK this November.
New single ‘xenomorph queen’ is out now, the curious, coiling guitar lines emphasising a vocal that drips in attitude. Re-imagining the queer family, it’s a song that seems to take the central message of the Alien trilogy – “get away from her, you bitch” – and flip it upside down.
deep tan comment…
“’xenomorph queen’ witnesses the real star of the alien franchise in a new context: in the throes of a lesbian romance. a sensual – but still punk – track about matriarchy, queer parenting and sapphic love, this close encounter offers a new, intergalactic perspective on #hotmilfsinyourarea #xenomilf”
