The Deep Blue’s ‘Yellow And Gold’ Is A Triumph

"Sometimes it feels a little empty and you miss being close to someone..."

Manchester risers The Deep Blue have shared their impressive new single ‘Yellow And Gold’.

The band enjoyed a breakout moment last year, with their imperious single ‘Jealous Sea’. A full EP followed, fusing dazzling 80s pop tropes with stellar indie-rooted songwriting, displaying a palpable sense of ambition.

Somewhere between HAIM and the Blue Nile, The Deep Blue’s evocative aesthetic reaches tender new heights on ‘Yellow And Gold’. Out now, the punchy production – all synth-stabs, and bewitching electronics – is set against mellifluous vocals, continually moving in and out of one another.

A song about probing post break up spaces of independence, ‘Yellow And Blue’ focusses on the need for close bonds with those around you. The band comment…

“You know when you break up with someone and it feels good to be on your own again. Time on your hands, life in your control. But sometimes it feels a little empty and you miss being close to someone.”

“Then summer comes and you stumble across that thrilling feeling of new love again and even though you think you probably shouldn’t, and it’s probably too soon, you let yourself return to that warmth. Let
yourself go, into yellow and gold.”
