Deerhoof Release New Song ‘Debut’


Deerhoof's last studio album was the Janet Jackson/Madonna-inspired La Isla Bonita back in 2014. Since then they've released a live album (Fever 121614) and collaborated with 22-piece contemporary music ensemble Dal Niente.

Now the band have released a video for a new song, 'Debut'. It's a spiky little funk-pop number which you can listen to below. Other than the obvious fact that the four members of Deerhoof got together in a room and recorded a song, hopefully we can also infer that there's a new Deerhoof album on the way.

Also, the description accompanying the video is so good that we had to post it in full. Enjoy:

The band called Deerhoof have a new song out! It's so weird because they are a band that does not even live in the same town but somehow they make musics! They like to keep in touch and also to make songs!!!!!! They are so weird!!!!! But then sometimes also they go to the same place to make the music! Electric noise! Have you ever been scared by your own shadow? That's what it's like to hear Debut, Deerhoof's new song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right now I'm scared because of Deerhoof!!!!!!!!!!! Greg Saunier plays the drums and also he knows the names of four snakes!!!!!!! Satomi Matsuzaki is playing a bass while someone knows a moth is eating their old varsity jacket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ed Rodriguez picked up a guitar and there were worms in someone's garden and they murmured blessings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! John Dieterich uses a guitar to play a song and there are old creepy frogs around your grandma's apartment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!!!!!!! In 2016, Deerhoof have made this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and once they made a skype call like the millennial youths!!!!!!!!!!!! – Hailey Reissman
