California darkwave duo, Male Tears has just unveiled their latest single, “Deal3r”. The song plays into the themes of an upcoming record that speaks on the abuse and hypocrisy of city night life.
“Deal3r” tells the story of the ultimate example of “style over substance.” It’s the tale of an important person; a “legend” embraced by the “scene” But beneath the “image” and artistic craft, lies an individual empty and shallow; a hypocrite and drug dealer whose true identity was hidden under the skin of the community.
The song is intended to be an aggressive dance-pop track pulling from darkwave and EBM influences. Filtered through the lens of 90’s pastiche and acid house, “Deal3r” is a departure from the band’s established 80’s new wave sound.
