New East London 7-piece psych-pop collective This Is The Deep have quietly established a cult live following. Through support slots with HMLTD, PVA, and Family Time, as well as their own sold out cross-over events at venues such as Windmill Brixton, Moth Club and The Shacklewell Arms, they combine immersive art and video installations.
What started out as late night recording sessions between flatmates Ranald Macdonald, David Bardon and Oscar Robertson – quickly spiraled into This Is The Deep’s carnivalesque troupe of seven musicians. Drawing as much from artists such as Suicide, Death Grips, and the scores of David Lynch and Ennio Morricone, as from the glittery pop-disco of the Scissor Sisters, This Is The Deep consists of post-punk royalty Susie Honeyman (Mekons) on fiddle, Sammy Silue on guitar and vocals, Ranald Macdonald on synth and vocals, Hannah Tilson on trombone and vocals, David Bardon and Oscar Robertson on bass and drums, with electronic drums and percussion from Liam Toon.
This Is The Deep release their debut EP ‘The Best Is Yet To Come (Part I)’ via B3SCI Records on May 21, 2021.
