Born in 1997 in the attic of a flat in Chicago’s Ukrainian Village, DEL REY’s music expands upon the post-rock and electronic roots of their native city, but their sonic palette also contains hints of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and Afro-Cuban textures. Fueled by the band’s furious double-drummer attack and stinging guitar work, these elements are deftly woven into songs that take on a life of their own. Immemorial builds on the cosmic soundscapes of DEL REY’s previous material, but here they’ve channeled their energies into an even more evocative, melodic sound — even incorporating the Chinese guzheng and Japanese taiko drumming into their Immemorial sound — heightening the tension and release of each song. It’s surely heavy, but in a clean, angular, and cinematic style that has been honed to perfection, making this the band’s most ambitious offering to date.
Promos of Immemorial and interviews with the members of DEL REY are available now. North American journalists are invited to direct all promo inquiries to Earsplit.
