Inspired by bands such as Everything Everything, Toro y Moi, and Jaws, Deep City’s music consists of atmospheric samples and pop guitar influences; combining their love of 80's and 90's synth sounds with 21st century electronic & pop sensibility.
In 2016, the band’s track ‘Where Are We’ was featured on a Record Store Day vinyl release for R*E*P*E*A*T Records which saw them received radio airplay from Steve Lamacq at BBC 6 Music.
In the same year they won the ‘Ones to Watch’ award at the prestigious Cambridge Band Competition, reached the final of BurySOUND and won the NMG Award for ‘Best Group 18 & Under’ which was judged by a panel of music industry experts including Sheila Ravenscroft, wife of the late legendary BBC Radio DJ, John Peel.
2017 saw the band release their second single ‘What Happened’, win the ‘Best Group 18 & Under’ NMG Award for the second year running, and their self produced debut EP, 15:16, later in the year backed with support from BBC Introducing.
After releasing their latest single 'Pain Killer', 2019 has seen the release of their newest track 'Delaydreaming.' and their sophomore EP 'Circuit'.
The band is comprised of frontman Stanley Horseman, lead guitarist Lewis Moran, bassist Stephen Farrell and drummer Alex Dixon.
