The first single by self-described cinematic experimental alternative outfit DELANILA, “Time Slips Away,” debuts today. The track, which Analogue calls “a hypnotic, ghostly song whose musical mood matches the shadowy subject,” can be streamed and purchased HERE and stream via SoundCloud HERE.
DELANILA is the project of multiple award-winning performer Danielle Eva Schwob, who has garnered international acclaim for her concert music, alt-rock songs and film scores. The debut DELANILA album, Overloaded, follows in the fall of 2019.
“‘Time Slips Away’ is a song written for anyone who has ever wasted time online,” says Schwob of the debut single. “It’s a song about living life at a distance, a manifestation of a human desire to escape the inhuman noise of the internet.”
Written by Schwob and co-produced with three-time Grammy winner David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, Peter Gabriel), the forthcoming full-length album Overloaded is a reflection on the innate tension between humanity, technology and the strange connected-yet-disconnected lives we all live today. Orchestrated and performed largely by Schwob on a wide range of instruments both acoustic and electric, the record also features contributions from Grammy-winning engineerEmily Lazar (Beck, Sia), programmer Pearse MacIntyre, drummer Aaron Steele (Portugal. The Man), bassists Reuben Cainer (Animus Rexx) and Jordan Brooks (Albert Hammond Jr), violinist Jennifer Choi (John Zorn), keyboardist Nick Semrad and guitarist Adam Agati (both of Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles), among others.
