Their sound may be rock, soul and a little bit of Americana, but all the five piece San Diego outfit Delta Spirit is making listeners hear in their latest EP, The Waits Room, is melancholy sadness.
How could we not feel this way, when on the album the “short list” of the things we lose include “our youth, our safety, our comfort, our innocence…” and this goes on and on. But Delta Spirit’s music thrives on this tone, as critics and fans have agreed.
The band’s new tour begins next week to promote the release of the EP, dropping TODAY, and their last LP, History From Below, which is out now on Rounder Records.
