The Control Group signs The Deer Tracks, hopelessly confusing fans of Deerhoof, Deerhunter, and Deer Tick

The Deer Tracks recently announced that they have signed with The Control Group for their new EP, The Archer Trilogy pt. 1 — a pretty big deal, if you’re into a label that offers ringtones for its bands alongside tour information (seriously — check out the website; who doesn’t want Kings of Leon to play every time your mother calls?).

While The Deer Tracks may also seem to slip into a long roster of forest/fauna-named bands from the US, once you hear their bittersweet brand of electronic pop with tinkling piano notes and airy vocals, it makes perfect sense that a) they’re from Sweden, and b) they should join the same label that brings us El Perro Del Mar.

Out on March 15, the new album is, as its name indicates, the first in an anticipated trilogy from the duo, with pt. 2 to follow in the summer.

The Archer Trilogy pt. 1 tracklist:

01. The Smallest Cube
02. Ram Ram
03. Karlavagn
04. Mio
05. Books of Blood
