Depth & Current is a noise pop, shoegazing band from Seattle, Washington.


Depth & Current have released a CD EP, a 7" single, and a full-length CD on Norman, Oklahoma-based independent label Nice People. Their music has been described by Magnet (magazine) as "vast and dynamic as an ocean, characterized by guttural vocals and mesmerizing, spacious psychedelic guitar riffs loaded with distortion".[1] The Norman Transcript called their music "a sound of foreboding doom and forbidden enchantment".[2] The Oklahoma Gazette said that their debut album "sucks and swirls heavy, noisy mixes of grungy guitar and shoegazey vocals into the same dark hinterland where Albini and My Bloody Valentine get plastered and swap dirty jokes".[3]
