Deaf Club's debut single, a double-A-side affair featuring the tracks ‘Sunday' and ‘Mirrors', is to be released via the band's own White On White label on 20th February.
You can exclusively stream 'Sunday' over on the band's Soundcloud page now:
The single follows a great 2011 for the young British band. The year saw the five-piece complete their first tour of the UK, and release their debut EP, ‘Lull', to a great critical reception. BBC Radio 1's Jen Long told NME, "I have been falling in love with Deaf Club," and soon invited them to record a session for her Introducing in Wales show. Of the track ‘Hana', which opens ‘Lull', BBC and Amazing Radio DJ Bethan Elfyn said: "It's fantastic... it's just an amazing track."
This afternoon Deaf Club were selected as The Guardian's New Band Of The Day, with Paul Lester noting... "Deaf Club make connections between disparate genres of music you might not have considered putting together, but now that they do suddenly make sense. They flirt with or fluctuate between goth, shoegaze, chillwave and a rocked-up folk, and it all sounds seamless."
The band are set to build upon this groundswell of support in 2012. They play a selection of live dates in February and March to support the release of ‘Sunday' / ‘Mirrors' (see below for details), and will follow-up this single with another in the summer (via the Too Pure label) as well as further live activity.
