U.K. label 4AD have gradually built a portfolio that consists of some of the most intelligent pop music around, including likes of Grimes, Purity Ring, and self-described “ambient punk” act Deerhunter. Their latest release on 4AD, Fading Frontier, has been labeled their most pop-forward to date. But for a while now, Deerhunter have proved themselves capable of producing songs that are at once infectious and still somewhat haunting. Great singles from Fading Frontier like “Snakeskin” and “Breaker” may elevate them to the same levels of mainstream popularity enjoyed by bands like the Strokes or the Shins.
