deer scout leaves a bright mark on the Philly DIY scene with fluorescent blue lipstick and homey imagery in the video for her single “sad boy.” Lamenting existential woes that are sharply specific but commonly felt, Dena Miller brings a light and shiny quality to her music with whimsical electronic elements and buoyant guitar lines. The song provides a narrative to moody, artsy college boys sulking their way through young adulthood with a 40 in hand, and captures it all on film with stunning luminosity. Drawing parallels to big indie acts like Girlpool and Waxahatchee, “sad boy” signals a promising future for deer scout. This track has a sweet, addictive quality, so feel free to hit replay as we anxiously await another release.
