Deity’s Muse is a four-piece band from Johannesburg, South Africa that has been busy rocking the atmosphere. The band has a bit of an indie rock vibe, driven by some killer guitar work providing a lot of interesting texture. Their lyrics tend toward insightful and introspective, giving a surprisingly thoughtful undercurrent to their hard-driving rock.
The current lineup has been together since 2014. In August of that year, the band made their first Oppikoppi Festival appearance. The following month, they performed on the main stage at Krank’d Up 2014, with bands that included Unearth, Protest The Hero, and Newtown Knife Gang. In November of that same year, Deity’s Muse embarked on a South African tour with the Australian band Dead Letter Circus.
Most of 2015 was spent preparing their album, Convergence. The album was released this past February.

This is the video for their first single off the album, Satellites:
It’s hard to change
The mind’s made up…
And this is Spectrum, a song that shows a whole other side of this band. The song is soft and atmospheric, lyrically simple yet thoughtful and compelling. The tempo and feel builds slowly, taking us into a drifting spiral of sound.
Forever we search for the colour of sound
The message in spectrum
Suspended through waves
Projected the same
We hold hands
