Deeper "Bennington"

Chicago band Deeper have released a cover of John Maus rarity, “Bennington,” The song is the B side of the band’s upcoming 7”, “Run,” due October 4th via Fire Talk (Dehd, Weeping Icon). “Bennington,” follows single, “Run,” their cover of “Bennington” is astutely scientific. The track has a vivacious energy, featuring intricate guitar lines and urgent percussion.

Deeper on “Bennington:”

“John Maus is one of our favorite artists and ‘Bennington’ always struck us because of how he captured the feeling of an unsettling obsession for someone. We played this out once earlier this year as part of a Planned Parenthood fundraiser and ended up so happy with it, we decided to record a version during the sessions for our single ‘Run.’ While the original captures this eerie sense of longing, we wanted to re-frame that sentiment into one more focused on trying to find a feeling that’s passed – less focused on one person in particular.”

Deeper has toured with Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and The Districts, while also sharing the stage with Deerhunter, Protomartyr, Jeff Tweedy, and Whitney. They will kick off their North American tour this Friday at Chicago’s Thalia Hall. Then, they will continue to tour across the states in support of “Run.”
