Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s selection, featured on the Afternoon Show with Kevin Cole, is “Clouds” by Deep Time from their 2012 self-titled album on Hardly Art.

Deep Time – Clouds (MP3)

Austin, Texas, based duo Deep Time (formerly Yellow Fever) create guitar-driven pop songs that are as catchy as they are agile. Guitarist/vocalist Jennifer Moore and drummer Adam Jones have a knack for compact songwriting that is more evident than ever on their debut under the Deep Time moniker. Sharp and articulate, today’s featured song, “Clouds,” plays to all of Deep Time’s strengths to create an efficient and direct slice of charming and melodic songcraft. Over a wiry guitar line, Moore effortlessly delivers her lyrics with a graceful precision that borders on sounding like a romance language, as Jones precisely keeps time as the duo jump from one section of sleekly constructed pop to another. Clocking in at just under three minutes, “Clouds” is a energetic and exciting pop song that could very well serve as the soundtrack to the end of summer.

Deep Time are currently touring the United States, but have already come through the Northwest earlier this year. Hopefully, they’ll be coming back this way in the near future. Keep tabs on their Facebook page if you want to know if and when they’ll return, and right now watch the video for “Clouds” (which was filmed in Olympia) below.
