Délage is a musician from Amsterdam who takes a dark turn on the biggest matter of all time: Love.
In his second album Twist and Doubt (Field Mate Records, France), sacred synths and distant guitars are mixed with dry bass lines and rolling drum patterns. They build the backdrop of an imaginative movie in which the lyrics announce the agony of love, absurd commitment, impatience of the heart and the necessity of the other.
A mix of Twisted Dark Melodic Pop, NDW, Cold Wave, Hypnagogic popand early 60s pop songs; vaguely in the veins of John Maus, Grauzone, Nick Cave, Ariel Pink, Trisomie 21, Joy Divison.
Backed by his band members who equally stranded in Amsterdam at one point in their lives, Délage sings in English, German and French. His debut album Loverboy Beatface was released in 2018.
