Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to D3lta. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the atmosphere created by his music.
As soon as I hit the play button I immediately liked the way of interpreting the songs by this talented artist.
In his voice I heard a passion capable of speaking to the soul and heart of the listener, surely we are faced with an artist who has great sensitivity.
In some moments and for certain melodic intuitions his new single ‘Hey You’ reminded me of the compositional style of Radiohead even if in a less alternative version. Especially the instrumental part after 2.45 minutes made me relive the atmosphere created by the band led by Thom Yorke.
Attention to every detail is maniacal and the chord progression is never predictable and banal.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Hey You is D3lta’s Single Out Now!
Deep and Refined!
Born and raised in Greece to a Greek and a British parent, D3lta first explored music on the piano, starting his classical training aged 5 before picking up a guitar aged 12 to experiment with the grunge and punk music that fuelled his creativity during his teens. Having performed in various bands throughout high school in Athens, he fully immersed himself in London’s underground music scene whilst studying engineering there, and performed at such iconic venues as London’s Comedy Club, Blues Kitchen and smaller venues and clubs around Kent and Bristol.
Upon his return to Greece after his studies, D3lta formed his own band, Black and Blue, which quickly rose to prominence thanks to their reputation for energetic live shows. They soon booked a residency gig supporting a pop star in Greece, playing a 2000 capacity venue twice a week, but when the gig came to an end so did the band and in a pivotal moment D3lta decided it was time to record his material as a solo artist. His debut solo releases in 2018 were met with critical acclaim in Greece as well as attracting attention at the Greek Mad Awards where he was nominated for Best New Artists. He performed to 40,000 people at OAKA Stadium in Greece and Rock FM, the country’s biggest rock radio station, had his single on playlist rotation.
With momentum building and D3lta’s headline shows selling out in Athens, the global pandemic felt like a huge blow at first, but it soon became apparent that this forced pause was exactly what he needed to focus on his writing and become a better musician. With the time to breathe and immerse himself in his music, D3lta had soon written 20 new songs, created demos in his home studio and showcased them to producers in the UK which is when he met Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian). Working with Abbiss, D3lta has experimented with his sound over the past year to record music that doesn’t and shouldn’t necessarily fit into the box of a genre.
New release Hey You comes hot on the heels of D3lta’s rejection of society’s expectations with empowering track Hypocrites released to critical acclaim in 2021 with support from Earmilk, Vice and Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist.
