Listen: Deerhunter – ‘Element’

Today, Deerhunter release ‘Element’, the second single to be taken from their forthcoming studio album, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? out Friday 18th January. Listen below!

Described by Atlanta-based frontman Bradford Cox as “an elegy for ecology (a landscape done in toxic watercolors)”, ‘Element’ follows in the footsteps of album opener ‘Death in Midsummer’.

Deerhunter’s eighth LP Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? forgets the questions and makes up unrelated answers. It gets up, walks around, it records itself in several strategic geographic points across North America. It comes home, restructures itself and goes back to bed to avoid the bad news.

Deerhunter have made a science fiction album about the present. Is it needed right now? Is it relevant? Perhaps only to a small audience.DADA was a reaction to the horrors of war. Punk was a reaction to the slow and vacant 70’s. Hip Hop was a liberated musical culture that challenged the notions presented wholesale about the African-American experience. What is popular music today a reaction to? Pre-order Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? here.
