New Music: Mock Deer – Human Code

Mock Deer, real name Ricky Damiani, is an artist that recently hit our radar through his track Contempt For Others. Jane liked it so much, she also interviewed him. Now it’s my turn to run the rule over his latest single Human Code.

Human Code is a delicate acoustic number. Ricky’s soulful vocals take centre stage, telling a story of the mundane that becomes all the more heightened with emotive and poetic lyrics. As the track progresses, its fleshed out through vocal harmonies and touches of brass. It’s all so overwhelming beautiful.

As with Contempt For Others, Human Code is taken from Ricky’s forthcoming EP Perceptions, set for release in April. You can give it a listen below.
