PORTRAITS


porque todos tenemos una historia que contar...

Rolling Stone México
"Una fuerte promesa de la electrónica mexicana desarrollada en tierras lejanas"  A. C. A

Idiofobica
Cuatro temas bastan para dejar una muy buena sensación en el oyente, en donde sin duda nos mantienen a la expectativa de futuros trabajos.

The Underground Hong Kong
Wild Eyes This is just great. Kicking off with Killer-esque guitars, it lulls listeners into a false sense of security, before launching into a massive and compelling chorus that insists you get on your feet and throw yourself around with wild abandon (which was a bit embarrassing as I was on the MTR at the time). Its huge and hypnotic outro will change your life (not necessarily for the better, but your choice – you could have gone to church instead, right?).

Rolling Stone Mexico
En exclusiva para Rolling Stone, Deer compartió el video de "Wild Eyes", su más reciente sencillo.

Groove Magazine
We had an interview with our friend from Grove Magazine (Korea) Emma Kalka. (p. 39-41)

Young Post
Opener Wild Eyes addresses immigration as singer Adriana Martinez theatrically delivers, “Sit down, wake up, shut up, turn around”. Instrumentally, it’s full of resonating synths, Nine Inch Nails industrial kits, and a low, dirgy guitar riff, as if Crystal Castles had joined forces with Royal Blood – it’s a bold start.

Deer Mx, el dúo que está conquistando Hong Kong lanza su primer EP


Ung Tro
Deer går även under namnet Deer under Dollars & Cents. Bandet är en mexikansk duo som är baserad i Hong Kong och består av Adriana Falcón (sång/gitarr) och Miguel Bastida (Synth/gitarr). Nu släpper duon sin nya EP “Portraits”.

Music Map
Un duo messicano residente a Hong Kong che fa trip rock. Le premesse geografiche ci sono tutte per compiere viaggi musicali, e così è per i Deer, che nel loro Ep "Portraits" ci propongono 4 canzoni dense di suggestioni timbriche crepuscolari. Prima di pensare ai Massive Attack, il riferimento noto che viene alla mente è quello dei primi Portishead, però la voce femminile qui è molto meno sofferta, anzi in certi momenti appare sicura di sé e più "nera".

Sonar Música
Deer es una banda mexicana establecida en Hong Kong !!

Blues Bunny
Sometimes it is difficult to come up with a succinct, yet wry, description of band’s sound and, indeed, such was the problem with Deer and their EP “Portraits” for, as a band, they don’t quite fit into any of the currently trendy musical genres.

Notodo
Así queda claro en su flamante Portraits, un EP en el que el dúo mexicano residente en Hong Kong desarrolla un sonido absolutamente singular, con tanto de introspección como de experiencia combativa.

New Noise
Deer’s music video for “Wild Eyes” was directed by Jorge Moya, aka “The Hong Kong Fixer,” who was also in charge of the previous single “In The Shadows.” The “Wild Eyes” video stars Andrew Ng, a respectful actor from the region who has been working in movie industry in big projects, such as Ghost in the Shell.

Shiver
In quell’occasione svelarono il primo singolo “Wild Eyes” e questa fu l’impressione dopo qualche ascolto “dentro combattono in modo armonico elementi industrial, un animo trip-hop (che il duo preferisce chiamare trip-rock dato l’uso abbondante di chitarra), ed il cantato di Adriana che inizia docile por poi crescere di intensità fino al ritornello”

Jazzquad
Они познакомились в Мехико, где оба изучали музыку. Он, Мигель Бастида, постигал тайны классической композиции и игры на гитаре, она, Адриана Фалькон, штудировала музыкологию. Оба музицировали и сами. Адриана больше работала в области фольклорной мексиканской музыки, Мигель чаще играл камерную музыку. Но оба любили альтернативный рок, и после совместного посещения концерта одной исландской группы решили поработать вместе. Сегодня Адриана и Мигель, партнеры по жизни и по музыке, составляют дуэт Deer, небольшой EP которого Portraits мы сегодня представляем.

Muzzart
Avec Portraits, EP fort de quatre titres...forts, il en propose une déclinaison fiable et attractive. Wild eyes, à la fois brut et finaud, porté autant par la voix d'Adriana Falcon que par les décors de son acolyte Miguel Bastida, inaugure brillamment l'EP. L'univers de Deer est autant trippant que puissant.

Deer (MX)
 è l’amalgama sonora di due musicisti messicani, Adriana Martinez e Miguel Bastida, che però vivono dall’altra parte del pianeta, Hong Kong, e a Marzo del prossimo anno pubblicheranno il nuovo Ep intitolato Portraits.

the monitors
Mexican duo Deer are currently based in Hong Kong, so it makes sense that their new video for ‘In The Shadows’ is also set there. Moody blue filters and a variety of disorientating effects help create a distorted, engrossing vision of the region as the video’s somewhat menacing protagonist stalks its streets, subways and markets, before the band provide him with a new direction (and a snazzy mask).

The Book of Lies 
In The Shadows is a great example of what Deer do, as deep, moody beats underpin the vocals from Adriana Martinez Falcon. Meanwhile, the video, directed by Jorge ‘The Hong Kong Fixer’ Moya similarly juxtaposes stillness with the chaos and hubbub of one of the world’s busiest and most crowded cities, a city of opposites and, 20 years on since rejoining China, ongoing turmoil as to it’s place in the world.

The Underground
Deer’s latest single ‘I Want It All’ begins with a low tremolo synth fading in, panning from side to side, whilst a distant electronic dubstep drum pattern resonates in. It all explodes with a punchy kick, slapping snare, and intricate high-end programming prominent in Bjork’s ‘Homogenic’ era.
