“Negative Thot” by Common Deer
Common Deer wants listeners to get up and dance with their buzzing single “Negative Thot”. The track is a combination of indie guitar sounds that the band heard when they were younger with electronic sounds. The band really blends a popish sound in the verses with a blaring, high-energic alt-rock sound in the chorus. “Negative Thot” will of course have listeners dance along, but also have sung out loud vigorously during the chorus. It is such an intoxicating listen!
