Deer Park Avenue’s Ambient Grunge Reverberates In Their New Single, “Cave”

The sister duo brings a fresh brand of melodic rock to European stages this summer.

From the first seconds of glittering synth-like guitars and cavernous percussion, Deer Park Avenue’s music video premiere for “Cave” signals a fork in the road for rock duo Sarah and Stephanie Snyder. Their haunting, hooky debut single builds anticipation, utilizing both restraint and power to cut through the noise – or as music blog Alt77 puts it, “[Cave] works almost like a soundtrack to a movie playing in the mind.”

It’s a song about blazing a new path, which is exactly what the sisters have done with this track. With an expert command of dynamics and the craft of storytelling, the song creates a dramatic and inspirational mood, building up to the explosive chorus: “They say just fake it until you make it—don’t want to take it anymore.” Steph says, “‘Cave’ is about leaving the cave of doubt, stepping out of the shadows and letting your light shine. It’s about being comfortable in your own skin and having the determination not to cave to pressures around you. This is us at our realest.”

The sisters are 2nd-gen-Indian California-girls currently based in Munich, Germany, inspired by legendary rock, French pop and Bollywood flash while living out of a suitcase. Sarah (vocals, guitar) and Steph (drums, vocals) bring an electric energy and warm sisterhood to the stage, leading a nonstop sonic freeway of boppy anthems, raw and emotional lyricism and buzzing riffs that became Deer Park Avenue. Since forming the group, Sarah and Steph have toured internationally in the US and across Europe supporting artists such as Palaye Royal and Bebe Rexha, became Recording Academy members and released EPs and an LP that have landed them on national television in the US and Europe. Their sheer technical prowess on their respective instruments have also earned them endorsement deals with Epiphone, Paiste Cymbals, Audix Microphones, Blackstar Amps, Alvarez Guitars, Dixon Drums and Aquarian Drumheads.

For the band’s latest effort, GRAMMY®-winning producer Reto Peter (Green Day, Modest Mouse, Counting Crows) is behind the board to showcase Deer Park Avenue’s dynamic, melodic and hook-laden brand of fresh rock music. On working with Reto, Sarah says, “We left the studio better musicians and more so, just better people in general, because of his patience, coaching and encouraging direction to get the most out of us and our music.”

On working with the band, Reto says, “Deer Park Avenue’s new album shows their maturity while keeping the fire. Great songs, solid performances.”

Deer Park Avenue will release an EP this Fall 2023 along with a sophomore LP, slated for 2024. They will be playing select lives shows this summer, including at Munich’s prestigious Olympiapark. “Cave” can be found on all platforms including Spotify, Amazon Music, and Apple Music, where it has landed on several editorial playlists.
