Father Deer Hands Release Debut EP

Father Deer Hands

Sydney Emo-Punks unveil their 3-track EP, ‘Sad Souls Don’t Float Upstream’

Australian emo-kids Father Deer Hands have just released their 3-track debut EP Sad Souls Don’t Float Upstream. Produced, mixed and mastered by Clayton Segelov from The Brain Studios with additional engineering by Angie Watson, the new EP thematically tackles the process of progress. Check out the video below for the track Feel The Low accompanied by vocalist Matt Betmalik eating bananas. All of this is on top of recent news that the band will be joining Tiny Moving Parts (US) on the Sydney leg of their tour next February.

Each track on Sad Souls… explores a journey through negative situations and finding the light at the end of the tunnel. Leading singles For The First Time In Years and Sunlight Dance feature warm, fuzzy guitar chords and bass, littered with midwest emo-inspired leads and bouncy drum breaks. The vocals are delivered aggressively and heartfelt. It’s perfectly suited to anyone that has emo/post-hardcore genres scattered throughout their playlists.

Father Deer Hands announced in August that they would be joining Minnesota post-hardcore group Tiny Moving Parts on the Self Titled Tour next February alongside Eat Your Heart Out on the Sydney leg, on February 5 at Mary’s Underground. Tickets are available now via Moshtix. As well as this, the band will join Young Lions, Rumours, Future Static, Days Like These and more at Reboot Festival: A Celebration Of Aussie Music on November 18 at Factory Theatre in Sydney.

Having only released a handful of singles since their inception, Father Deer Hands has seen fast acceptance and love from their hometown crowds, triple j radio play as well as features in several music publications.

Sad Souls Don’t Float Upstream is available now, streaming everywhere.
