Kobadelta - alt-indie from England


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.

Theoretically centred around swooping guitar riffs Goy Boy McIlroy quickly knock that on the head as all the players are given equal prominence. That isn’t to say that the strings are not given space to explore, because they are, but the lasting impression is a superb baritone vocal which ties the compositions together.

Combining the lower registers throughout their work Goy Boy McIlroy is able to inject a gothic mediaevalism into the sounds which are as inebriating as the architecture and this a band to spend many a delightful hour as the music soars triumphantly around the room.

Although it is only early in November and I have a few thousand bands to consider for review before the end of the month, these guys are already on my ‘Editors choice’ shortlist for the band of the month and I am also certain they will rise high in the readers selection for band of the month.

Well worth catching live on their supporting tour in Northern England through November to mid December, with a one off date in London on the 8th (tomorrow) if you are in the vicinity, I posit.

With a new single set for release on the 11th November I wish Goy Boy McIlroy all the best for the future.
