WXPN welcomes Delta Rae

It's been a good couple years for the relentlessly hard working six piece rock band from Durham, NC. Delta Rae’s debut album, Carry The Fire, came out to high praise last summer. They’ve been profiled everywhere from NPR to Time to Forbes and Rolling Stone proclaimed that "if Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae." VH1 hand selected them for their "You Oughta Know" Artist Of The Month program. They performed not once, but twice on both The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno and Conan. Live is where Delta Rae truly flourish. They’ve sold out venues from coast to coast, opened for heroes like Lyle Lovett and even shared the stage with First Lady Michelle Obama, when they performed during a Democratic rally at UNC Chapel Hill. They played pretty much every festival under the sun, including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Voodoo. Delta Rae just released a brand new EP, Chasing Twisters, that includes the blazing title track which Rolling Stone deemed “heroic” and “Run,” which iTunes hand picked as their Single Of The Week. Delta Rae are currently working on a brand new studio album, which will come out in early 2014.

THEY MET. THEY FELL IN LOVE. THEY WROTE SONGS.
THEY FOUGHT. THEY MADE UP. THEY BROKE UP. THEY WROTE SONGS.

at a time when for most it would be the end of a relationship, for The Falls this feels like just the beginning…

Almost subconsciously The Falls have documented their whole relationship in their songs. The love, the betrayal, the heartbreak. While at times it is hard for them to wear their hearts so openly on their sleeve, for The Falls, it has been a huge part of their songwriting. As Stevie Nicks said "devastation leads to writing good things".

In the fallout from Valentines Day, The Falls decided that rather than wallowing in self-pity they would put their heartbreak to tape. So they pulled out their little tascam 4-track portastudio, which, with all its tape wobbles and noise, aptly captured the fragility of their hearts. These fledgling recordings were just the beginning of what has become their debut EP 'HOLLYWOOD' (out now through MGM Distribution).

In late 2011, The Falls hit the studio with producer Tony Buchen (Old Man River, Andy Bull, WIM, Washington) to record 'Hollywood'. The Hotel Hollywood in Sydney, has featured so strongly in their lives that it was inevitable that it would manifest itself in this way. For most of 2010 and 2011, it was where they could be found playing each week at a little, somewhat undiscovered, night of free music that emerged from the back streets of Surry Hills called Folk Club. It is also where they met, where they found their sound and where they wrote these songs.

In this intimate setting, the connection between these two onstage was palpable. Their emotionally fueled live performances are compelling to watch, sometimes heartbreakingly so, garnering reviews such as "intoxicating melodies and gorgeous harmonies" and "(their) strength lies in their ability to convey raw emotion and wisdom in their lyrics".

Buchen managed to imprint some of this Hollywood magic on each track, recording the re-verbs for the EP down in the bowels of the hotel, in the downstairs men's toilets. So, each song has on it a little Hollywood porcelain re-verb or 'pee-verb' as they've been calling it.

Having toured nationally this year with Of Monsters And Men (Iceland), Passenger (UK) and Avalanche City (NZ), The Falls are fast developing a very impressive live resume which also includes performances at the Surry Hills Festival, Peat's Ridge Art and Music Festival, Gulgong Folk Festival and Nunnup Music Festival, as well as shows with Lior, Husky and Georgia Fair.

Having also shared the stage with one of their idles Graham Nash, when he was in Australia on tour with Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Falls have had an incredible year.

With an unmistakable sound, barefoot collaborators and best friends The Falls are gently making a name for themselves in 2013
