DEAF POETS Are Hunted By Beautiful & Dangerous Damsel in Cinematic “Celestine” Music Video

Hell-bent on bringing the raw grit back to Rock & Roll, Deaf Poets signature lo-fi sound resonates far beyond their home base of South Florida.

Their effortlessly vintage cool tunes have built the band a solid foundation and impressive momentum as their accolades continue piling up – with one of their songs selected for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 and being dubbed “Best Band In Miami.” The pair is currently preparing for the release of their full-length album, Lost In Magic City, which will drop May 2017. Fans were given a treat with the new track from the project – a gritty garage rock gem entitled “Celestine” that has a melancholic vibe, propelled by dirge-y drums and fuzzy guitar riffs. Black Book raved, “their sexy, psychedelic garage rock combines the epic howl of Led Zep with the fierce anxiety of Smashing Pumpkins, all perfectly realized on this wicked new single.”
Dark, sinister, and full of suspense, the video shows the character Celestine, played by Rachel Miller, seeking retribution on the gents with her deadly bow and arrow. She’s on the hunt, stalking and chasing them through the streets of Miami.

The two-piece band consisting of Sean Wouters (Lead Vocals / Guitar) and Nico Espinosa (Vocals / Percussion) aim to create music that fosters community and collaboration, “the mechanics of today’s music industry are insanely complex,” marvels Wouters. “The idea that we all live in a time where everything is so readily available and accessible has lead our attention spans to be unforgiving. With collaboration we can bring more artists together building once again a community.” Espinosa also adds they hope the music can serve as “reminder that music is an art form and it’s supposed to evoke emotions and not always be strictly business.”

Their music is the embodiment of hard-hitting drums with distortion-soaked guitars. Wouter’s childhood influences, such as Jimmy Page and Kurt Cobain, led the duo to combine elements of 70s rock, with the aggressiveness of 80’s punk, and an added aspect of 90s grunge to define their sound. The pair met in elementary school; and during their high school years, they went through a long process of musical experimentation, which ultimately led to the founding of Deaf Poets. “Music just always felt right and I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else,” said Wouters. “I was never driven by the idea of fame or success but to truly express myself in what I feel is sacred and especially sharing that with my best friend.”

The duo cemented their place in the South Florida indie scene by performing at numerous music venues across the city – ultimately earning the title, “Best Band of Miami” in 2014 as well as being apart of the, “20 Most Influential People of Miami” award in 2015, by The Miami New Times. Their single, “Degenerate Mind”, from their debut album ‘4150’ was selected to be a part of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 video game soundtrack and was also featured in Classic Rock Magazine’s compilation CD in 2014.

The accolades don’t stop there – Deaf Poets have become regulars at iiiPoints music festival, performing for four years in a row alongside acts like Mac Demarco and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. In 2015, Deaf Poets supported the indie dance duo, Matt and Kim, and have also shared the stage with dynamic acts including Best Coast, The Naked And Famous, Theivery Corporation, Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, and more. They are currently preparing for the release of their new album and will be unleashing infectious new music, captivating videos, and high-energy live shows on fans in the coming months.
