Desoto Jones have released a new song called “Deceiver” that will appear on an upcoming EP-turned-LP expected later this year. Following December’s spacious “Room to Move,” “Deceiver” tightens the reins with a solid wall of guitar distortion and a tension-filled build-up to some trademark arena rock solos.
Lyrically, the track mirrors the instrumental tension as it explores a dystopian society of pied piper-led “idiots and simpletons” who have forgotten how to think for themselves. Take a listen below and revisit “Room to Move” here. Desoto Jones will open for Deaf Havana at Milkboy on February 14th; tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here.
