Deep Blue

Album: The Suburbs (2010)
  • The title of this song refers to the chess-playing super computer developed by IBM that defeated grandmaster Garry Kasparov in 1996. The song treats the triumph of technology over human as a generational loss of innocence.
  • Frontman Win Butler told the NME: "'Deep Blue' to me sounds like Neil Young with Depeche Mode at the end - which shouldn't work, but I think it does."
