November 18 2023


“In a world of dystopia, deep fakes and discontent … DeepFaith are your shining light in the darkness.”


“Spooky, experimental, and haunting— just how we like it.”


“Channels psychedelia, techno-utopianism, and queer maximalism across a sprawling range of forms.”

DADDY” is out now, buy/stream it here.

Today, DeepFaith share the video for their new single “DADDY,” a yearning fantasia that dares to gaze into the parental void. As a track, “DADDY” is a blissful and disorienting step into the ever-expanding world of DeepFaith — and the new video only deepens the experience.

The “DADDY” video is set in a delirious queer-coded, AI-damaged reimagining of Sin City. Watch the prismatic, reality-bending video for “DADDY” over at PAPER.

Says DeepFaith of “DADDY”:

‘DADDY’ places a unique emphasis on a boy’s journey into manhood and his relationship with love and the father figure. In the context of a queer journey, ‘DADDY’ assumes the roles of caregiver and mentor for a younger male. In today’s modern society, boys face considerable pressure to conform to traditional masculinity, potentially stifling their ability to embrace vulnerability. Regardless of gender, the father figure provides a source of guidance and someone to look up to. Ultimately, the boy simply yearns for love; he longs for his DADDY.”

DeepFaith is the hybrid art & music project helmed by Australians Daniel Stricker (drummer for Midnight Juggernauts, founder of Siberia Records, and collaborator with the likes of Kirin J Callinan, Alex Cameron, Solange, and Kelsey Lu) and Byron Spencer (the acclaimed multidisciplinary artist who’s helmed projects for Troye Sivan, Lady Gaga, and Dev Hynes).

DeepFaith have already begun to build out their practice of transcendental techno utopianism: They’ve brought a “Crypto Digital Opera” to the Sydney Opera House, performed for Chanel, put on sold-out Crypt shows, collaborated with Snoop Dogg, and have shared stages with Jamie xx and The Avalanches.

DeepFaith just wrapped a US tour with Genesis Owusu — keep an eye out for more music to come in 2024.
