Deeper Upper: “our target is to get abroad”

Lithuanian indie-rock band, Deeper Upper, revealed in an interview with Music Export Fund on November 6 at Liverpool Bar, that their “target is to get abroad.”

However, the foursome made up of Kestas (vocals, guitar and synthesiser), Ignas (guitar), Rimantas (drums) and Evaldas (synthesiser and programming), are no strangers to playing outside the borders of their native Lithuania.

In 2014, Deeper Upper won the Euro Music Contest in Paris.

Their “unexpected” first place saw them win a three-day recording session at the Black Rock Studio in Santorini, Greece.

While Ignas believes 2015 has been Deeper Upper’s “best [year] yet”, he explained to MXF that the band’s objective is to play more in Western Europe, and build a Western fan-base.

“It’s been a great year, but it’s not over yet,” he said. “We created some material we’re really proud of – we released our second EP called Ceremony, which was well received by our fans.

“We also made a music video for our song, Unity, but our target is actually to get abroad.

“We’re always looking for new opportunities to travel, to spread our music and find more and more listeners.

“We’ve been to Latvia and Estonia, but the rest of Europe is waiting for us! Our goal is to get out there, especially to the Western part.”

Deeper Upper also confirmed they hope to release a new album in 2016. They are yet to finalise a release date.
