Recorded with producer, Mike Burnham (Fuzz Club Records, Holy Wave) at his Lovebuzz Studios, London, ‘Preservation’ emerges as the segue between The Black Delta Movement’s early years, and where they are sonically propelling towards. Addressing the political Punch & Judy of social media, the new single finds that band at their most vigorous with frontman and primary songwriter, Matt Burr suggesting: “I never really get too political in songs because I think it’s boring, however ‘Let The Rain Come’ was more a jab at people who DO get political: ‘Vultures circling the road and they’re all just watching as we pick at the bones’”.
Over the years, the band have earned approval from the likes of Anton Newcombe (The Brian Jonestown Massacre), Alan McGee (Creation Records) and Barrie Cadogan (Little Barrie/The The/Primal Scream), alongside sell out UK/EU tours and previous slots with the likes of Drenge, The Jesus & Mary Chain and Temples.
A groovy little track, its rock and roll vibes sit well amongst a psychedelic sound with flashes of increased hard rock pace. Incredibly catchy but with a DIY style production. Let the Rain Come’s simplified rhythm hides deeper and more satisfying riffs alongside unmistakable British vocals.
If this is anything to go on, then the album should prove to be an absolute banger.
