No offence to the next few months, but is this year’s Black Deer Focus going to find a better name than The Goat Roper Rodeo Band? Of course we’re here for music and we’re pleased to say the wordplay and tunes of their songs are just as good.
So who are they? Take a spin to their music and you’d have no idea the band are a trio from… Wales. They play perfect Americana, with a range of emotions and styles using the classic staple of bass and guitars. What you might not be prepared for is the genuinely beautiful vocal harmony. There’s three albums currently on Spotify, and the latest was 2019’s Tall Grass (we see what you did there.)
We’ve got a pair of videos today. First up is their Sofar Sounds session take on Toss and Turn, an ode to sleeping alone, and second is Desert Flower which we picked entirely because the opening few seconds have a Sombrero acting as a UFO. Lastly here’s an entire fifty minute session promoting Tall Grass.
Black Deer Festival 2020 is at Eridge Park, Kent, June 19 to 21st. Tickets are on sale now: https://blackdeerfestival.com/
