Snakeskin | Deerhunter


Andrea Jablonski

Deerhunter is back, baby, and they’ve got a track to introduce their new album Fading Frontier, “Snakeskin”. The album doesn’t come out until October 16, but until then, they’ve left us with this gem of a jam to transition their sound toward a funkier arena.

This is a perfect mid-playlist track beginning with a cymbal that immediately leads you into Bradford Cox’s smooth, muffled vocals that sort of melt their way into the rest of the song. If you keep listening, you’ll eventually find yourself immersed in an orchestrated haven of instruments.

Its lyrics are a little dark and kind of twisty, but based on its presentation, if this song is anything, it’s fun.
