The Madrid duo might only have a two-song demo to their name, but that hasn’t stopped people from talking about them. The band is buzzing, not only in their home country, but also around the world, with press as notorious as the UK’s NME praising the band. They also made some heads turn with their appearance at Make Noise Malasaña.

The band—consisting of Carlotta Cosials and Ana Perota—are a charismatic and engaging rock outfit. They exploit the charm of lo-fi production and bare-bones instrumentation to make great garage-tinged pop. “Bamboo” opens with what could be a Nirvana bass riff but soon gets to its feet to stumble with a wide smile. “Trippy Gun” is even shakier, with tempo changes that make it sound sloppy but psychedelic, and ends with a banging finale. The vibe is joyful throughout.

Although Deers’ music is both fresh and raw, it’s reverby passages and poppy melodies showcase Carlotta and Ana’s voices, both of which are remarkable. Their vocals are sweet, although one is duskier than the other, and they complement each other perfectly.

This is only the beginning for Deers but we already can’t wait for what they’ll come up with next. Name your price below.
