Hurry Home is out now via New West
After a successful European tour last month, New Orleans-based The Deslondes announce a UK tour for January 2018, including a slot at Celtic Connections in Scotland. This follows the release of their critically acclaimed new album Hurry Home (out now via New West), which was described by Uncut in their 8/10 Americana Album Of The Month review, “Hurry Home finds The Deslondes exploring the connections between surf, rock ’n’ roll, honky-tonk and Southern soul to fashion a wonderfully interchangeable whole.”
Hurry Home continues their studied and inventive take on New Orleans country and R&B but also represents a sonic shift with a more electrified sound. Long combining elements of early Stax, Sun, and Atlantic Records with the influence of a more raw, stripped-down sound gleaned off field recordings from Alan Lomax and the Mississippi Records catalog, the band have now incorporated psychedelic flourishes that bring to mind the sonic experimentation of Joe Meek, Lee Hazlewood and The Velvet Underground.
For ​Hurry Home,​ the band split songwriting and lead vocal duties among its five members, Sam DooresRiley DowningDan CutlerJohn James Tourville, and Cameron Snyder, continuing their democratic ethos and musical versatility. ​
The album that emerged is Hurry Home“It’s a fitting title for this album because our lives and our songwriting revolve around leaving and returning, or searching for, home,” says the band. “And home can be a physical place, a relationship, or a state of mind.”
