Emerging experimental art-rock group Deliluh today share new single from their forthcoming record – ‘Rabbit’ is a visceral and gritty warning about the corruption that is present everywhere.
The Canadian band recently announced a brand-new mini LP for release on May 3rd via Tin Angel (UK/EU) and Telephone Explosion (CA/US) – ‘Oath of Intent’ comes hot off the heels of a year spent tracking fresh ideas to tape in local veteran’s hall Owls Club. The record is a summer sibling, one of two albums birthed in the community space, and documents the group in its most cut-throat realisation to date.
Talking about the track, lead vocalist Kyle Knapp said: “‘Rabbit’ is about surveying our surroundings and recognizing the corruption intrinsic in our everyday environment. It speaks from the perspective of anyone seeking truths that are often exposed as cold and hard once distinguished. The rabbit is a symbol that guides us towards solutions and deeper understanding, but not without uncovering the devil in the details.”
Following on from their self-produced debut LP ‘Day Catcher’ (released via Hand Drawn Dracula, 2018), ‘Oath of Intent’ tells tales that pick apart the conflict and unease within our human makeup, respectively inhabiting its characters and peering through anxious lenses at the past, present and future, with lyrical tenacity and razor-sharp tact. Swift instrumental exchanges are opted in preference to layers or blending, delivering an experience front-to-back like a tight collection of hard-boiled short stories.
Deliluh’s live propensity to ignore the traditional circuit of bars and clubs in favour of unconventional venues has built a reputation at home, and one they intend to maintain. Over the past few years, they’ve given audiences a variety of performances in bakeries, libraries, apartments, and a decommissioned subway platform.
They embark on a tour of the UK and Europe this May, with festival appearances across Canada to follow throughout the summer. The band hail from Toronto and have solidified a reputation as a torchbearer for the DIY music community. The exciting post-punk quartet combine drone and experimental music into a fiercely resonating sonic identity.
The group’s slow-burning force is becoming more potent by the month. Foregoing the clean polish of professional studios for living spaces of contextual importance, Deliluh’s dedication to thoughtful writing and analog documentation has been a constant process that’s kept loyal fans highly anticipating their culminate fruit in this year’s offerings.
