Big Black Delta

Big Black Delta

Originally from Venezuela and formerly of the rock band Mellowhead, Jonathan Bates is forging a new mighty electronic sword as Big Black Delta.

His new weapon is armour piercing synthpop that’s welded to the rock aesthetics of his former self. Big Black Delta is gonna take your head right off.

Now based in LA and having worked with M83 and White Sea, Big Black Delta’s self titled debut album is out on 8 April. Based on what he’s released so far it’ll be a record I’m going to want to own.

Here’s the latest release Side of the Road. I think it would have been perfect on the Drive soundtrack:

Betamax is my favourite of his releases so far, with power drums and great harmonic changes.

And here’s the epic IFUCKINGLOVEYOU. Yes, EPIC.

Catch BBD live in 2013 at SXSW, Camden Crawl & The Great Escape.
