X Ambassadors Unveil “Deep End”
Acclaimed band X Ambassadors are unveiling their new song, “Deep End,” written for and featured in the much-anticipated Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom from Warner Bros. Pictures, directed by James Wan and starring returning cast Jason Momoa, Patrick Wilson, Amber Heard, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Nicole Kidman.
Thematically, the movie continues the journey of Arthur Curry/Aquaman, who must turn to his brother Orm to form an alliance to defeat Black Manta once and for all. This idea of the relationship between two brothers—an idea close to the band’s heart with the relationship between lead vocalist Sam Nelson Harris and his brother, keyboardist Casey Harris, playing a pivotal role in their music.“This song embodies the essence of brotherhood and resilience. When we were initially approached to compose this song, we were inspired by the movie’s central themes of camaraderie and unwavering determination,” details Sam. “As brothers and longtime bandmates, my brother, Casey, and I have experienced a multitude of up’s and down’s together. This song, in many ways, is a tribute to the unbreakable bond we share. Having our song featured in a superhero movie is a profound moment for me, as I’ve always held a deep appreciation for comic books and heroic narratives. This song is unquestionably a bucket-list moment for me and our band.”“When looking for an end title song, the challenge is to find a piece that sums up the spirit and soul of the whole movie,” says director James Wan. “We were very lucky to have X Ambassadors give us this powerful and melodically lyrical anthem that embodied the theme of brotherhood so perfectly.”Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom hits theaters nationwide and the full soundtrack by Rupert Gregson-Williams will be available on December 22.
