Deer Leader - "Four Deuces"

Glasgow's Deer Leader (not to be confused with Aaron Perrino's non-Sheila Divine band Dear Leader) have just released their debut single. "Four Deuces" is an intense, atmospheric, moody song. Deer Leader started out as an instrumental band and have just started adding vocals and lyrics to their music. I don't know if I'd quite call it experimental since there is some pretty solid mainstream alt-rock core structure here, but Deer Leader do include some interesting use of piano and horns that you don't typically hear from more mainstream bands. "Four Deuces" starts out as a quiet, fairly creepy song before evolving into a rock epic. If you're into bands like Mogwai or Explosions In the Sky, you owe it to yourself to check out this song.
