Track of the Day #910: Delorentos – Valley Where the Rivers Run – VIDEO PREMIERE

Irish indie/folk quartet Delorentos whom recently signed to Universal,  showcase their heartfelt big-hearted folksy sound with their new single ‘Valley Where the Rivers Run’, beginning with quiet instrumentation and a isolated  falsetto that calls to mind the work of Villagers and Bon Iver before swooping vocals envelop into widescreen crescendos that echo the work of Fleet Foxes.  We have the premiere for the accompanying new video, original animation, watch it below.  The single is lifted from their new album ‘Night Becomes Light’ out on September 2nd.

Delorentos are an Irish four-piece, who have supported artists as diverse as Bruce Springsteen, Two Door Cinema Club and Sinead O’Connor.

‘Night Becomes Light’ is their most personal output to date with deeply emotional   The sheer warmth of the lyrics and the harmonic complexity evoke ‘Suburbs’ era Arcade Fire and fans of The Killers’ first album will also find solace in the candid approach to songwriting on display here. Previous albums ‘Little Sparks’ and ‘You Can Make Sound’ both won ‘album of the year’ awards in Ireland (with Entertainment IE and The Choice Music Prize, respectively).

“We wrote the album between trips to the US, Russia, and Europe and recorded with Rob Kirwan, in his little loft studio, with its giant grand piano.” said the band of their newest release, “It was a great experience working with Rob, who was also producing Hozier’s debut album at the time. As we were leaving the studio after a week’s recording, he’d be arriving in with his guitar on his back, or vice versa.”
