Deep Pockets are a post-hardcore quartet from various parts of New York City and Long Island. Like a shouty, punk Hold Steady, they play thoughtful, distorted, melodic, frustrated music. Heavy-but-jangly distorted guitar and a swirling rhythm section hover around literate, assured vocals, all the instruments and vocals holding level then exploding into distortion at the drop of a hat. The music that Deep Pockets plays channels their influences– Silkworm & other 1990s midwestern post-hardcore– and makes it new again, relocating this distinctive sound to Deep Pockets' territory– the boroughs of New York City.
