The eponymous debut album from Chicago's Deeper is refreshing, anxious, and entrancing all at once. Beginning with the sharp guitar chimes of "Pink Shower," the album promises a newly interpreted take on something slightly familiar, coated with a subtle vibrato warble impersonating warped vinyl playback. The post punk base with flavorings of pop punk added to the mix is a welcomed assortment. With a consistent sound and a no-frills approach to presentation, the Chicago quartet’s self-titled debut album Deeper proves the hard work has finally paid off.
