Ora Violet’s Crunching ‘Delicious’ Offers Indie Rock Double Entendres

It's an ode to seduction...

London indie rockers Ora Violet return with new single 'Delicious'.

The band's pared back guitar pop has an ultra-minimalist feel, earning praise from The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael in the process.

Continually pushing ahead, the group cite everyone from proto-punk heroes The Modern Lovers to Chuck Palahainuk as influences, a stream of heady guitar pop jams.

New single 'Delicious' is a coy piece of seductive gender-fuckery, one that gleefully plays with the lines of sexuality.

Out this week, it's a taut return, with that wiry guitar line weaving its way around those preening vocals.

Ora Violet explain: "‘Delicious’ is a rock and roll statement about refusing to be put in a box. We have been inspired by Serge Gainsborough, Henry Miller and Chuck Palahainuk."

"The song tells the story of a man, in love with a woman, that was born a man. Lyrics are intentionally written to be sung from either side of the relationship. Sometimes normality, no matter how peaceful it may appear, needs to be disturbed. We don't always need to wear a label, that when scanned, will shunt us forward to the applicable box. If you want a label, just start with ‘Delicious’."
