Ung Tro

Music Map
Un duo messicano residente a Hong Kong che fa trip rock. Le premesse geografiche ci sono tutte per compiere viaggi musicali, e così è per i Deer, che nel loro Ep "Portraits" ci propongono 4 canzoni dense di suggestioni timbriche crepuscolari. Prima di pensare ai Massive Attack, il riferimento noto che viene alla mente è quello dei primi Portishead, però la voce femminile qui è molto meno sofferta, anzi in certi momenti appare sicura di sé e più "nera".

Blues Bunny
Sometimes it is difficult to come up with a succinct, yet wry, description of band’s sound and, indeed, such was the problem with Deer and their EP “Portraits” for, as a band, they don’t quite fit into any of the currently trendy musical genres.

Notodo
Así queda claro en su flamante Portraits, un EP en el que el dúo mexicano residente en Hong Kong desarrolla un sonido absolutamente singular, con tanto de introspección como de experiencia combativa.

Threshold
Deer, a mexican duo formed by Adriana Falcón (voice, guitar) and Miguel Bastida (keyboards, synths and guitar) and currently based in Hong Kong, are releasing a new EP today called Portraits and are also presenting it through a new music video for the single "Wild Eyes".

Shiver
In quell’occasione svelarono il primo singolo “Wild Eyes” e questa fu l’impressione dopo qualche ascolto “dentro combattono in modo armonico elementi industrial, un animo trip-hop (che il duo preferisce chiamare trip-rock dato l’uso abbondante di chitarra), ed il cantato di Adriana che inizia docile por poi crescere di intensità fino al ritornello”

Da Music
Vandaag komt hun ep ‘Portraits’ uit en daaruit werd Wild Eyes als singel gelicht. De song kreeg een clip van Jorge ‘The Hong Kong Fixer’ Moya.

Они познакомились в Мехико, где оба изучали музыку. Он, Мигель Бастида, постигал тайны классической композиции и игры на гитаре, она, Адриана Фалькон, штудировала музыкологию. Оба музицировали и сами. Адриана больше работала в области фольклорной мексиканской музыки, Мигель чаще играл камерную музыку. Но оба любили альтернативный рок, и после совместного посещения концерта одной исландской группы решили поработать вместе. Сегодня Адриана и Мигель, партнеры по жизни и по музыке, составляют дуэт Deer, небольшой EP которого Portraits мы сегодня представляем.

Avec Portraits, EP fort de quatre titres...forts, il en propose une déclinaison fiable et attractive. Wild eyes, à la fois brut et finaud, porté autant par la voix d'Adriana Falcon que par les décors de son acolyte Miguel Bastida, inaugure brillamment l'EP. L'univers de Deer est autant trippant que puissant.

Deer

"From a training in classical music Deer has been able to stride the great divide to trip-hop and deliver compositions that elegantly glide around the room in elegant sweeps of floating textures..."
Tim Whale

The New Breed of Trip-Hop 

"Classically trained and full of low slung spirituality Deer are the duo of Adriana Martinez and Miguel Bastida. Electronic percussion, swirling synth, moody piano and electric guitar all fuse around Adriana’s beautiful vocals which juxtapose from a choral to fractured (in a good way) delivery... this exciting new duo definitely evoke the trip hop spirit..."

Deer la banda mexicana que triunfa en el underground de Hong Kong 
Deer son un dúo mexicano que triunfa en el underground de Hong Kong. Tan curiosa mezcla de latitudes arroja como resultado un proyecto musical bastante original en el que se mezclan estilos de ambos continentes para recordarnos que la originalidad sigue siendo la única manera de salir de la rutina.
