‘Into Their Clutches’ sees Deity’s Muse crafting a melodic rock powerhouse.
After a busy 2019 which saw the release of their acclaimed Lungs EP and tours of the UK and South Africa supporting prog-metal pioneers Monuments, a headline performance at 229 in London, a festival slot at UK Tech-Fest and a support slot opening for Ukraine metal machine Jinjer. Deity’s Muse spent most of 2020 writing and recording new music while releasing the dynamic single ‘Erra’ and picking up a South African Metal Award for “Best Alternative Band” along the way. Ennui is part two of an evolving EP trilogy concept which will coalesce into the band’s next full-length album, their first since 2016’s ‘Convergence’. Convergence helped land Deity’s Muse appearances at Euroblast 2017, Bloodstock 2018 and its first UK tour which saw them co-headline venues with the highly rated Sümer.
Produced by Deity’s Muse and Dead Letter Circus guitarist Clint Vincent, the band’s latest release Ennui sees the South African progressive alt-rock unit on a song crafting high, delivering fiery, emotional riffs with dynamic, potent grooves, inspired by the collective chaos of the current times. Exploring themes surrounding climate change, anxiety, cancel culture, loss and polarisation, Ennui is a salient reality check buoyed by hope and the desire for balance.
Into Their Clutches, the first single taken from Ennui is a melodic alternative rock powerhouse featuring soaring rhythms and guitar work with a sweeping, anthemic chorus. The dulcet vocals offer a balanced study of the cogs that keep the wheels of political polarisation turning. Easily one of the most arresting and important songs Deity’s Muse has released thus far. “Into Their Clutches is also unlike any music video we’ve made. Our intention was to come up with an alluring metaphor for the current state of polarisation and collective click-bait thinking driving modern society. We wanted to tell a captivating story in an eerie and cinematic style. Every single shot was meticulously planned beforehand to best represent the lofty subject matter in the lyrics and the flow of the music. I’m really pleased with the results…” Wayne Boucher (Vocals / Guitar)
