Folk/pop duo The Sweeplings share new song “Deep & Wild,” along with an accompanying music video, from their upcoming EP Losing Ground Vol. 2, out September 18th. Losing Ground Vol. 1 was released earlier this year, featuring stand-out track “In Between” co-written by John Paul White (The Civil Wars). The two halves of the project ultimately comprise one heartfelt whole, with The Sweeplings—Cami Bradley and Whitney Dean—magnifying the beauty of life’s simplest pleasures through folk eloquence, indie spirit, and alternative soul.

“It took us a long time to get to Losing Ground,” Cami admits. “It’s a testament to the process. We split the two EPs in a way we feel makes sense. There’s a lot of material on both. Some songs are not so hopeful, while some of them are. It’s a balance.”

“We started out going in one direction and realized it wasn’t working,” adds Whitney. “We lost some ground in our process. At the same time, the songs can apply to falling out of love or struggling with addiction. It’s a human struggle. You’re always doing something with an intention. The general concept is you lose some ground from the struggle, but there’s always ground to be made.”

Of the new song, The Sweeplings say, “‘Deep & Wild’ is about missed opportunities and the danger in waiting. A cry of determination to fight for someone even as they are pushing you away.” 

Since emerging with their self-titled EP in 2014, The Sweeplings maintained a prolific pace. They built a growing catalog, consisting of four EPs Covers, Ch. 1 [2016], Winter’s Call [2016], Sleepwalking [2017], and Merrier Days [2017] and one full-length, Rise & Fall [2017]. Streamed over 100 million times to date, “Chains” eclipsed 28.4 million Spotify streams as “Hold Me” generated 15.9 million followed by “Across The Sea” at 14.3 million. Between frequent touring, they attracted acclaim from NPR, Huffington Post, Atwood Magazine, and more. In addition, they landed syncs on Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Good Behavior, Longmire, and The Fosters in which they also appeared for a performance of “In Too Deep.”

“Deep & Wild” is available on all digital retailers.
