Houston-based sophisti-pop group Deep Cuts premiere their latest single “Take Me Back.” The single blends 80s-inspired synth pop with latin rhythms. “Growing up in Texas, and Houston in particular, you are inevitably exposed to Latino culture, and I like to think that bled into the music,” Zach Alderman of the band explains.” “A teacher of mine once told me that clave means “key” and that’s always stuck with me, like these rhythms are built to unlock people’s bodies and help them move.”

Stream the track over at Stereogum and on SoundCloud. The track will be available via digital markets this Friday (November 4), along with the digital B-side “Minimal Jungle.”

Deep Cuts is a group of musicians spearheaded by songwriters Chase Harris and Zach Alderman. The classically-trained pair piece together refined schmaltz tunes from winding guitar lines, synth pad beds with the DX7, and vintage 707 and 727 drum machines. What results is a venture from their latin indie rock roots into pop territory, with undertones ranging from salsa romantica to jazz fusion. They realize their songs live with a crack team of Houston players including Children of Pop mastermind Chase DeMaster. Following a string of self-released singles and EPs, the band will soon complete their first full length record with Grammy award-winning engineer Steve Christiansen. The album, titled Society Gig, will feature “Take Me Back” and more.

Tour Dates:
11/05 Houston, TX – Walter’s
11/07 Houston, TX – House of Blues w/ HUNNY
11/25 Houston, TX – White Oak Music Hall
