Deliluh - Oath Of Intent (pre-order)
Deliluh is an emerging experimental art-rock group that has solidified a reputation in Toronto as a torchbearer for the DIY music community. Their sound fuses elements of punk, drone & experimental music into a organic, yet fiercely resonating sonic identity.
The follow up to their self-produced debut LP ‘Day Catcher’ (reissued by Hand Drawn Dracula, 2018) comes hot off the heels of a year spent tracking fresh ideas to tape in local veterans hall Owls Club. ‘Oath of Intent’ is a summer sibling, one of two albums birthed in the community space last year, and documents the group in its most visceral and cut-throat realization to date. The record's five tracks tell 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.
Oath Of Intent will be available on LP / Digital on May 3rd, 2019.
