The wonderful folks over at Yours Truly did this sweet session with the Delorean guys in their Spanish home. They talk dubstep, their genesis, work and do an intimate and incredible version of “Grow” off of Subiza. PLUS, the guys announced another round of U.S. Tour dates. Tour dates below the video.
The version of “Grow” captured in this video is a studied and intimate version of what the band now plays live. It must be hard to be an ambitious musician in Barcelona. Having to tear yourself away from the lure of the white beaches and narrow cobblestone streets to compose in a windowless practice space almost seems impossible!
But it’s here in this video- the bare moments of composition and rehearsal, dissection of every detail that eventually adds up to an ecstatic experience imbued with emotional and musical heart. Ekhi refers to a “musical competition” that drives them to step beyond themselves, to take the time to draw from their surroundings and community to create something better than what’s come before. It’s amazing that Yours Truly captured the band figuring out how to perform the sounds they composed in isolation live. The video shows us the song in its most essential state- underneath the wash of synths and samplers is care and passion, deliberate and constant change. Summoning transcendence is hard spellcasting work and I’ve seen few people as committed to that craft in my life as Delorean. Good music breathes. YES, thank you!
