Manchester-based outfit The Deep Blue craft a beautifully original style of alternative indie folk, infused with stunning vocals and thought-provoking lyricism.
As is the case with their new single ‘He Said She Said’, this is a song that feels dreamy and summery on the surface, while the lyrics carry a far more important and poignant message.
“‘He Said She Said’ was written in response to section 72 of The Domestic Abuse Act of 2021. Inspired by stories in the news and some of our own experiences, we offer this song as a voice for the countless women who have been harmed by or lost their lives to domestic or sexual violence. It’s a topic full of sadness but we wanted to wrap it in an upbeat sound and swap the sadness for strength. We’re not here to make you cry, we’re here to light a little fire in you.”
