The English dark-psychedelia quintet Kobadelta will be releasing an as yet unnamed EP on the 8th of October.
From the forthcoming five track release, the third – Bathsheba reminds of that hour of coming down from an adrenaline trip when the lows catch up with the highs and the listener finds themselves wrestling with their own demons. Lasting only a tad under three minutes and fifty seconds, this is a song that the mind wants to wrangle with for far longer.
Strident bass thumps off the walls as the synths echo, whilst guitar spirals a kaleidoscope of colours and the vocal lays like a ill-tempered venomous snake laying in wait to strike passing prey. This is a track to tip the paranoid into a breakdown of self-inflicted brain melt as the lyrics inveigle their way into the brain.
Why it has taken me almost two years to come back to Kobadelta is a mystery, but I hope it is long before August 2018 I return again.

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.
