Delorentos’ determined rise has been a wonderful (and, at times, tortuous) chaos – break-ups, labels collapsing, reformations and critical awards, worldwide tours and packed houses from Mexico City to Moscow. In a world where so much emphasis is placed on “brand new” they continue to revel in writing albums and playing live shows that are ever more passionate, raw and exciting!
The band’s 5th studio album ‘True Surrender’ was released in April. The album was written, arranged, recorded, mixed and honed over a chaotic three-year period of bilocation, the birth of children and a heightened level of personal and professional anxiety – not to mention all of the usual trials and tribulations of the creative process and the artistic battles that are par for the course. Songs were written, stripped back to their core and rebuilt with new instrumentation, new meaning and a constant, fervent desire to pour their hearts and souls into every bar of music.
Ultimately, True Surrender is the band’s most evolved, emotive and affecting collection of songs so far. The tell-tale sound of a classic 4-piece guitar band is still there in parts, but that sound has been developed, mixed, melded and transmogrified into a brand new, edgy beast that is a force to be reckoned with!
