Chicago band Deeper late last month unveiled 'Lake Song', which is set to appear on the band's forthcoming sophomore album Auto-Pain. The album will be released on March 27 via Fire Talk and the new single will appear alongside previous tracks 'Run' and 'This Heat'.

'Lake Song' is home to a sea of gloomy yet glowing synths, feverish guitars, a persistent bassline, as well as distorted vocals that capture the dark and introspective energy of the track. The song was written about the struggles involved with helping someone you love when they're facing mental illness. They said:

"We grow up learning and eventually intuiting how to take care of people who are physically hurt or sick. On the other hand, caring for those struggling with mental illness is a constant process of grappling to understand the complex nuances that then dictate the best care and approach. “Lake Song” is about supporting a loved one struggling with mental illness and wishing the pain they experience was easier to cure, like a head cold or broken bone. The chorus, “I just want you to feel sick” is the manifestation of this desire."
