Opening with dreamy guitars and washed-out vocals, the new song’s opening verse contains the lyrics: “In blur, father/ Glanced over stirred/ Imagined you laughing/ Muddied feet dancing/ What is this aching prism?/ This prison wincing/ Receiving sudden swaths of dogma“.
‘In Blur’ arrives today (August 4) with an atmospheric, VHS-style accompanying official video, directed/edited by John Bradburn. Tune in here:
‘Infinite Granite’ was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (who has previously worked with the likes of Wolf Alice and Paramore) and engineered by both Darrell Thorp and regular Deafheaven producer Jack Shirley.
The collection features nine tracks including previous singles ‘Great Mass of Color’ and ‘The Gnashing’ – you can see the full tracklist below.
- In Blur

Deafheaven released the live album ‛10 Years Gone’ back in December, with the band explaining that they had intended to tour North America last year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their first Bandcamp demo.
“Unfortunately, we couldn’t fulfil that tour because of fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic,” frontman George Clarke explained. “To rebound from the financial and morale hit, we put together an album of the set we intended to perform.”
