Kobadelta from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in England is the alt-indie quintet of Dom Noble (Vocals), Alex Malliris (Guitar), Chris Malliris (Drums), Jonathan Marley (Bass) and Jordan Robson (Synths).
Like light from flickering wax enveloped candles Kobadelta partially illuminate the walls of a dank cellar with their brooding gothic inspired film-noire encapsulations of sound.
There is a warming rush that sweeps over the listener as Kobadelta extend their reach across the gloom, to tempt the audience to follow the purple sash into the unknown and following the enticing caress is to end in a warming underground cave of bliss as the quintet writhe their sounds around the brain.
Earlier iterations of their material hinted at the potential that lay within the band and their as yet unreleased four track EP – Remain Distracted – which I have had the fortune to be massaged by, extends the darkness with a satisfying embrace that out-reaches by far their previous release Hidden Door which came out earlier this year and of itself was and is an EP to unfold as the sun drops in the sky.
The new release, has a date set for the 26th September in their home town with support from the likes of Goy Boy McIlroy and should be a great night out – I just hope the stage lights are kept dimmed.
The only track I am able to share with you at this juncture is the second of the four – Repetition.
