With the release of their much-anticipated debut EP coming very soon, East London-based trio deep tan has shared a final preview of what’s to come with their brand new single ‘hollow scene’. The EP, creeping speedwells, is due for release on June 4th via Practise Music.

According to the trio, ‘hollow scene’ draws upon ideas around the philosophic perspective of absurdism. “Absurdism... focuses on the tension between a meaningless universe and our constant striving to find meaning. This tension is what gives rise to the Absurd.”

Also saying on ‘hollow scene’, “'hollow scene' is about the feeling of having to move through life with a certain level of detachment in order to function. Gatekeeping empathy for the sake of an easy life, if you will. It’s a pretty draining business, though, and can make any real search for meaning feel futile. Meursault was wrong and he was right. Robert Smith, however, is always right.”
