Track Of The Day :: Delagoon - Somehow
Words: Ellie Ward
Released last week via the Hybris label, 'Somehow' is the official debut single from Swedish post-punks Delagoon that has seen the four Stockholm 18-year-olds compared to The Cure and The Teardrop Explodes.
Taken from their first EP 'Archipelago' which appeared late last year and now seems to have disappeared, after one track, 'Techno Kids', was put out - another you'll be hard pressed to find now. Delagoon, previously known as Amatörkapellet when putting up online their first demo tracks back in 2014, have now re-emerged with a more fully defined sound.
The near four-minute 'Somehow' echoes more to the sound of Joy Division in its opening guitar sound, before building in waves of pulsing drums and darkly delivered vocals that Julian Cope would probably approve of.
