South Australian singer/songwriter Oh Deliah, will be releasing her debut EP ‘These Old Dreams’ on May 18. Oh Deliah writes sweet, melodic indie-pop with tender vocals and heart-wrenching lyrics, accompanied by fuzzy electric guitar or sweet ukulele.
Today she is premiering the first sample of her debut EP in the single ‘April Sun’.
Thematically playing with that most familiar of subjects, the fleeting desire between two strangers, ‘April Sun’ is a stunning alt-pop track that enjoys stunning melodies against beautiful vocal arrangements that journey through the soul.
Oh Deliah, aka Becky Althorp, is a daydreamer and self-described ‘quiet old-soul’ who grew up in the Adelaide Hills listening to her parents’ vinyl collection. From the sounds of The Beatles, Crowded House, Fleetwood Mac and Simon & Garfunkel in her formative years, which transformed her teenage listening and songwriting akin to Laura Marling, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Keaton Henson.
Oh Deliah, loved poetry, nature and art as much as music, but when she discovered the guitar she found herself exploring new sounds and melodies and penning her own songs. Armed with a handful of songs, she began gigging around Adelaide.
Now in 2019, and with the help of funding from Carclew Youth Arts, Oh Deliah has just finished recording ‘These Old Dreams’. Produced by Kiah Gossner (Kaurna Cronin, Timberwolf, MANE), and featuring Oh Deliah on vocals and guitar, Kyrie Anderson on drums, Taasha Coates (The Audrey’s) on keys and Kiah on bass, the EP features five tracks recording at Mixmasters Studios at the end of 2018.
