DELS to Release ‘Petals Have Fallen’ Album on 3 Nov, Hear New Track "RGB"

Kieren Gallear aka DELS returns with his second album, Petals Have Fallen, listen to the first track, RGB.

Delivering on the potential he displayed on his first album, GOB, DELS has developed his own unique take on hip hop – intensely personal and poetic but also funny, scuzzy, raw and sonically adventurous. His explanation of the title of the record perfectly sums up Gallear’s aesthetic, plus providing a handy definition of what it is to make art: “the urge to protect something precious that will ultimately fall apart.

DELS’ long-term collaborator, Kwes takes on the role of Executive Producer and “reducer''. Only one of the tracks is produced solely by Kwes, with beats provided by Bonobo, Micachu (fresh from her triumph as the soundtracker for “Under the Skin”), Blue May, Eli-T and others. But Kwes and DELS took every track back to his studio to provide additional production and an overall feel to the whole album. Throw in guest performances by some of the most exciting singers in the UK today (Kerry Leatham, Rosie Lowe, Tirzah, Bila and Elan Tamara) and you have a palette which has been extended even further.

Petals Have Fallen is a record which you almost see as much as hear, one in which moments in time are suspended in images like prehistoric insects in amber. Already hotly-tipped as an MC and carving out a successful career as a designer and video director, DELS brings together all his interests and talents on this, a stand out album, which delivers and then some on The Times’ verdict that he is “the future of UK hip hop.

There’s plenty that you could pick out individually from this record but for now check out the catchy as fuck beat and hard rhyming on RGB.

If you’re in London, catch DELS at the 555-5555 club night on 22 August, along with patten, Appleblim & Komon, PhOtOmachine, Prayer and Max Tundra - tickets here.
