Delmer Darion return with beautiful new song ‘First Photograph Of The Nebula In Orion’.
The experimental duo’s entrancing debut album became a superb word of mouth success story, with their atmospheric musicality carrying a soundtrack quality.
Taking time out to re-focus, Delmer Darion have just broken cover with something new. The London based pairing move from deft avant-folk through to noise-drone scenes on ‘First Photograph Of The Nebula In Orion’, a track that really takes you on a journey.
An expansive work, Delmer Darion are joined by Chicago-by-Ohio songwriter Spencer Radcliffe and the wonderful Martha Skye Murphy.
The group’s Tom Lenton comments:
“The song is a response to the photograph it’s named after, which was captured by an amateur astronomer named Henry Draper in 1880. I was reading about how dry photographic plates work. That got me thinking about how it feels to remember someone that’s been out of your life for a long time. So it’s partly ekphrasis and partly about piecing memories together.”
Tune in now.
