Stream the new album at Rolling Stone
Blending a wide range of influences into the new record, [lastfm]Delta Spirit[/lastfm] channel West Coast punk (“Tellin The Mind”), [lastfm]Beach Boys[/lastfm] harmonies (“California,” appropriately), and the expansive sonics of [lastfm]Arcade Fire[/lastfm]. Matthew Vasquez‘s vocals have never sounded this confident and at home with the band’s arrangements. The album explores quite varied takes on pop music – both classic and contemporary – yet no song feels disconnected from each other. Fans of Delta will welcome their polished sound, and newcomers with an ear for adventurous pop music will fall in love.
