With the release of the new single "This Far Along", Deja Who takes a fresh approach to some classic genres to give the record a life all its own. Lush with addictive progressions, a passionate indie vocal approach, and grunge overtones, the song boasts the aesthetic of alternative rock anthems. 

“This Far Along", immediately grabs you with it's infectious rhythm, followed by it's building arrangement giving way for a powerful chorus that allows it to breathe as it plays on.

 

Although the single speaks volumes for the band, to get a real understanding of where Deja Who is coming from, the upcoming album will dig deeper into the concept. 

 

"'This Far Along' is about getting through obstacles throughout life, dealing with failure and overcoming mental health issues, like depression, for example. It's meant to be an uplifting and motivating song even if the topics and depth of meaning can be challenging to listeners. To understand the song, I should explain that it connects to the album cover. The album cover is a fictional cartoon representation of God. During my life I've encountered many obstacles or failures or grieve from loss. Sometimes one thing or many things can make people lose control of their emotions. The cover shows an angry portrayal of "God" and the universe inside of "God's" mouth, which represents the universe making up "God's" body. I'm just someone who loves making music, thinking critically, being creative, and trying to make someone's day better." says songwriter Adam Shankweiler of the single and the album  to come.

Guitarist and songwriter Adam Shankweiler stands at the helm of the Deja Who project and all songs are performed, written, and recorded by himself. Deja Who came to fruition after Shankweiler became heavily inspired by a book called "The Egg"  by Andy Weir. The concept of the book never left his mind and over the years the artist has found a major connection between his music in that very same inspiration. 

 

Picking up at a guitar when he was only 13 years old, music was one of Shankweiler's first loves. It wasn't long after that he began creating music based on a vision. Years of dedication and support has gone into his musical journey and it seems it's still only the beginning for the artist. 

 

After writing a song dubbed "Deja Who", Shankweiler's father asked him "why don't you just call your band that?" Immediately finding a connection and meaning behind what he was writing, the name stuck. 

 

"This Far Along" is available now for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets along with its acoustic counterpart and is part of his upcoming full  length album The Cartoon leader, set to be released early 2020.
