Frothing with a warm dreaminess...
Delorean - Apar

Every track Spanish synth-poppers Deloran have ever made glows as though basking in an Ibiza sunset.

But here on the foursome's fourth album, ‘Apar’, there’s been a conspicuous shift away from their usual ravey, beach-club beats.

Instead, a warm dreaminess froths atop these ’90s house pianos and blissed-out choruses - especially on the glimmering ‘Spirit’ (video below), which is more Washed Out than New Order.

It’s ‘Unhold’ though, with an almost Balearic Cocteau Twins performance from Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, that affirms that while Delorean captured the spirit of summer with 2010’s ‘Subiza’, now they’re aiming to nail the soundtrack to the end of it.
