In an age where you can discover bands as quickly as you can order a Burrito, there’s something to be said about tracking their upward trajectory in the live arena, especially in the crowded New York scene. Back in early January, I caught A Deer A Horse at Cake Shop and was immediately impressed with the dynamic of Rebecca Satellite and Angela Phillips.
They teased a couple of new tracks including the Converse Rubber Tracks recorded and mixed single “Fighter” which dropped yesterday. The driving, riff burning cut confronts the risks involved in committing to something outside of your scope and control.
Satellite shares, “it’s about confronting personhood, where I begin and end and where the world begins and ends. The chorus, “You’ve got room for me/ You better run from me” is about the risk of taking the plunge and all the baggage someone brings with them, all the things they are that you haven’t learned yet.”
“Fighter” precedes the forthcoming split single Gunpoint/Mother Night out later this summer. Stream the latest from A Deer A Horse below and catch them at Mercury Lounge tonight w/ Gold and Jeffrey Lewis & The Jrams.
