Delorean are a lovely 4 piece originally from the Basque Country currently making their music in Barcelona, their move no doubt influenced by the late 80s exploits of Gary Lineker and Mark Hughes! 4 chaps with exciting nombres that us En-Ger-Land inhabitants could only dream of, their new E.P 'Ayrton Senna' (this band are full of car references) is a beautiful record fitting for this time of year. Ekhi, Guillermos, Igor and Unai have created an E.P that is equally danceable as it is relaxing, both fitting as a bar's background music and as a disco floorfiller. The E.P opener 'Deli' is complete with atmospheric minamalistic guitars, hiprolling baselines, piano-house keyboards and delicate, breathy female vocal samples. Drawing more than a passing comparison to the synthpop of equally exotic St Albans' trio Friendly Fires.
The song that's gaining the most hype however is 'Seasun' a track which pretty much tries to encapsulate both these features, like a day out at Weston Super Mare in music form. It builds slowly to a perfect dreamy hook, a track which indicates the band arent afraid to limit the vocal influence in their songs. The guitars seem to fit in with the Passion Pit, Temper Trap sound which currently is more popular than a comparethemarket advertising campaign, 'glo-fi' or whatever it's been christened this week.
The E.P is available on everyone's favourite, Spotify. Which I've noticed, has started playing 2 ad's in a row. I mean, I can forgive being reminded that Fosters are trying to appeal to those of us who are a quarter Australian, but this followed by an ad where an actor poses as a friend wanting to explain 'acceptable drinking' is far from acceptable, and is threatening to ruin any listening experience!
Oh ok then, here's Deli for you.
