Form | Class of ’21: Delmer Darion

Our round up of the best new artists continues…

Joining Yard Act and Moa Moa in our Class of ’21 today are Delmer Darion. Their record Morning Pageants is one of our stand outs from 2020 and we’re incredibly excited to see the duo live in 2021. They play Bristol, Manchester and Brighton in May and tickets are on sale now.

Who: Delmer Darion

Where: West Midlands

What: Experimental electronic/ IDM project of Tom Lenton and Oliver Jack, taking its name from the deep-sea diver found at the top of a charred tree after a forest fire in Paul Thomas Anderson’s cult film ‘Magnolia’.

Why: “Lacing IDM and ambient sounds with soothing alt-folk vocals and ethereal strings, they have created a vast and vivid aural landscape that perfectly captures this dark, yet utterly hypnotic tale.” **** NME
