Following a summer of festival appearances, Brighton’s Delta Sleep are today pleased to reveal a special live session video for ‘Strongthany’ – the latest track to be taken from their debut album ‘Twin Galaxies’ which is out now via Big Scary Monsters Recording Company.
The band are also pleased to announce they will hit the road throughout October and November on newly announced UK and EU headline tour dates taking in Spain, France and Italy promoting the new record.
Front man Devin Yuceil comments on the session; “The video was filmed and recorded in the same space we tracked our first ever album ‘Twin Galaxies’. It’s a converted warehouse in Tottenham that our awesome producer Tom Le Beau Morley lives and works from. The idea for this live video was that we had some spare coloured sheets left over from our ‘Lake Sprinkle Sprankle’ music video, and we thought they would make an awesome backdrop for a live performance.
‘Strongthany’ is the closing track on ‘Twin Galaxies’, ending on a massive build-up of dreamy melodies and evocative gang vocals. The song has two very distinct halves to it – the first being very tight and jagged and the second being more loose and floaty. The whole first half of the video is contained within the coloured backdrop, but as the song releases, the camera moves outside of the frame to reveal our 4-man-gang chanting the last chorus with us.”
What started as an earnest foray into pushing the boundaries of fledgling math-rock has morphed into something much more for Delta Sleep. Now demonstrating a command of structure, melody and intellectually charged song-writing, the new material is powered by Yüceil’s articulate and guttural vocal and whose insightful and emotionally astute lyrics bring a new level of depth to the band.
Typical of their trademark sound, on the new album the band are driven by a desire to write playful, original, and forward-thinking music. Self-taught and honest musicians, they create songs that are as complex as they are catchy, combining guitar driven melodies over jazz influenced grooves, all topped with thought provoking and emotional vocals.
Once described by a wise old man as an “enchanted battle between At The Drive-In and Mogwai for the city of Faraquet in the land of Radiohead” their live show is a force to be reckoned with – intense, captivating and extremely tight, they win over their audience at every turn.
‘Twin Galaxies’ is out now and available to purchase through Big Scary Monsters here.
