Tune in to a mini-concert with Deeper

Alexa Viscius

Though it has grown immeasurably over the last few decades, SXSW continues to offer up a whole slate of music discovery. One of the bands that's down in Austin, Texas, right now is one we've been partial to for a hot minute: Deeper.

The band, featuring vocalist Nic Gohl, drummer Shiraz Bhatti, guitarist and keyboardist Drew McBride, and bassist Kevin Fairbairn hail from Chicago. Their latest album, Careful!, is post-punk for the 21st century with a bit of a pop sensibility: "I wanted these to be interesting songs, but in a way where a 2-year-old would vibe out to it," Gohl says of the record.

Regardless of age, we think you'll dig this live performance recorded at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
