Delta Mainline Announce Debut Album 'Oh! Enlightened' Out May 20th 2013

Edinburgh based septet Delta Mainline prepare to release their debut full length album 'Oh! Enlightened' this May through Rehab Sound Recordings (UK) and Halcyon Records (North America).

Rich with texture and tinged with healthy doses of psychedelia, the record tumbles from skilled atmospheric soundscapes to vibrant bursts of melody. Ghostly reverberations underlie the album as a whole with space age electronica, adhering to previous comparisons made to Spiritualized, Sparklehorse, Spacemen 3 and The Beta Band.

'Oh! Enlightened' follows a number of formative releases which have paved the way for the band's journey towards a credible cult status. In 2009, they pre-released track 'Hope/Grace' on the psychedelic compilation album 'Strung Out Volume One' through The Third Wave Collective; which showcases "the cream of the guitar-based psychedelia-influenced crop" (Drowned in Sound). Other artists on this compilation included The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Caribou, Dead Meadow and Spectrum.

Their 2010 EP 'In a World Full of Madness, the Simple Joy of Melody Can Pull You Through' was produced by Rehab Sound Recordings. These sessions successfully captured the band's dynamic live sound, as the songs cascade from sweet and simple melodies into intense sonic experimentation. The distinctive sound resulted in a number of 5-star reviews and radio play both in the UK (including BBC Radio One) and overseas most notably in Australia, the USA and across Europe. 

In early 2012 the band were asked to contribute a recording to feature on 'US[THEM]': a release by Canadian label Halcyon Records celebrating the work of Pink Floyd.  'Green is the Colour' was recorded at the band's Mainline HQ.  Later this same year, the band also self-produced and released a hazy gem entitled 'Harbour/Haven/Light', which was used by American broadcasters CNN.

The bulk of 2011/2012 saw Delta Mainline take exile at the legendary Chem19 Studios to record this debut album. Engineered and co-produced by Davey McAulay (Mogwai, Mike Heron, Remember Remember) the result is an album blessed with an emphatic beauty and sonic menace that captures a band in complete control of their powers.

To coincide with this release, Delta Mainline will take to the road, with various launch nights being held in Edinburgh, London, Birmingham, Glasgow and elsewhere throughout the U.K.
