Deltawave – Discophobia
Continuing the Northern English tradition of legendary Electro Pop, Deltawave present their much anticipated album ‘Discophobia’, a stunning album bridging the gap between dark electro pop hooks and Indie sensibility.
Gaining airplay from XFM and the BBC and bolstered by strong live performances, the band has built up a loyal following in their hometown of York and gained national exposure by supporting Shed Seven on their national Tour.
Not only are Deltawave active on the live circuit but are building a strong following on tastemaker blogs, especially with their cover of Sister Sledge’s “Lost in Music” which was produced for the legendary Buffet Libre ‘Rewind’ Project. The track was one of the top 10 most blogged tracks on elbo.ws for several weeks in 2008.
Fronted by producer/singer/songwriter Andy Firth, Deltawave were discovered on MySpace by the MofoHifi label, who couldn’t believe that they weren’t signed, trekked all the way to York to see them live and signed them on the spot! MofoHifi has gained a reputation over the past couple of years for developing some of the most promising new electronic talents, including Phonat (“Easily one of the best secret weapon tracks we have heard in some time” – FunkyHouseMusic.com), The Young Punx (“I love The Young Punx. I’m a big fan” – Fatboy Slim) and Goshi Goshi (“Yoyo!! Lock shot is wicked mate, enjoying it a lot!” – Jaymo (Radio 1 INMWT)), and the label is delighted to add Deltawave’s debut album to their catalogue.
Following the release of the ‘Strychnine and Soda’ EP, the debut album ‘Discophobia’ is on release now.
