Deluka’s Debut Album Coming This October! Album Available Digitally on Sept 14
“Ellie Innocenti is the next balls-out sex symbol frontwoman, right up there with the likes of the Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O, and Metric’s Emily Haines.”
– Venus Zine
“An example of pop music at its most fun: dancy, noisy, and carried by a decent hook”
Brooklyn-based, Birmingham-bred band Deluka will release their highly anticipated debut full-length album this October on Vel Records. The band has been holed up in the studio writing one of the year’s most exciting debuts. Their breakthrough self-titled EP and thrilling live shows were simply the warning shots! Deluka are on a mission to remind you of everything that is exciting and sexy about rock ‘n’ roll.
Recorded at Vel Records’ studio in Brooklyn, the new album builds on the sound of the EP that NME called “Girl-charged electro-skuzz punk, akin to Ladytron snacking on The Killers for brunch.” Two of the EP’s standout tracks are present on this album: opener “OMFG” and the band’s hit debut single, “Cascade”, the video for which won MTVu’s “The Freshman” by a landslide, and debuted on MTV’s “Subterranean” last month.
The new material shows the growth Deluka has experienced during their time in Brooklyn. The lush production and the undeniable chorus of “Come Back To Me” prove that this band can write a great pop song. Gritty songs like “Trespasser” and “Waves” show the band’s mastery of layering of lead singer and guitarist Ellie Innocenti’s rock guitar riffs over the electronic beats of electronics expert Kris Kovacs. Drummer Stevie Palmer provides the flawless rhythm that has become a trademark of the band’s sound.
Deluka are also no strangers to the dancefloor. “Mean Streak” has the energy and the attitude to whip any crowd into a frenzy. The album closer, which has also become a hallmark closer for their electrifying live shows, is the epic “Capital City”, an anthemic track that could very well become indie rock’s answer to “Empire State of Mind.”
Ellie Innocenti’s commanding delivery on this album will leave no doubt of that in your mind that Deluka are one of the most exciting bands of the year. In “Come Back To Me,” she tells you to “come back, come back to me now.” You will…again and again.
Watch Deluka perform “Cascade” live on MTV Iggy here.
