Delta Mainline Intimate Christmas Show
Central Belters / Sneaky Pete’s presents an intimate Christmas show from Delta Mainline, fresh from the release of their 2019 sophomore album “Bel Avenir”. Support TBA.
Dubbed as gloriously out of step with the rest of Scottish music, Delta Mainlines unique mix of dream pop, shoegazing soundscapes, electronic experimentation, and psychedelia-infused garage rock has brought invitations to perform with Moon Duo, Micah P. Hinson, Jane Weaver, Elephant Stone, The Warlocks and The Telescopes, plus widespread critical acclaim.
Recorded at Chem19 and mastered by Geoff Pesche (Aphex Twin, Blur) at the iconic Abbey Road Studios, debut single Vultures included remixes by Miaoux Miaoux and Remember Remember. Vultures was licensed to Action for Children for their 2016 campaign, premiering on Glastonburys Pyramid Stage. Debut LP Oh! Enlightened was released through Rehab Sound (UK) and Halcyon Records (North America) to unanimous critical acclaim – notably from Uncut, Q Magazine, Artrocker, The Scotsman and God Is in the TV. The release was celebrated with a UK headline tour and BBC live session with Vic Galloway.
Further radio play has included Lauren Laverne on BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 1 and Amazing Radio, with the latters Jim Gellatly (the voice of new music in Scotland) previously championing Delta Mainline as one of the countrys finest live acts. This live sound was captured on EP In a World Full of Madness, the Simple Joy of Melody Can Pull You Through (mastered by CHVRCHES Iain Cook), as the songs cascade from gospel-tinged melodies to intense sonic experimentation.
Previously, the band were showcased amongst the cream of the guitar-based psychedelia-influenced crop (Drowned in Sound) on Strung Out Vol. 1 with Caribou and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Delta Mainlines 2nd album “Bel Avenir”, mixed by The Delgados Paul Savage (Franz Ferdinand, Teenage Fanclub), launched in May 2019 with support from Clash Music and Vic Galloway on BBC 6Music.Buy Tickets
