Alternative Dance Band from Barcelona produces a new dance hit for wider audiences.

Subiza is the third studio release by Delorean, a four-piece Spanish alternative dance band which was formed back in 2000. The name is from the Basque town where they recorded the tracks but their love of layering synths for the dance floor is universal. Remixes for bands such as Franz Ferdinand, XX and Cold Cave has also provided another outlet for Delorean’s club-inspired sound. 


The CD was released back in March by Mushroom Pillow but True Panther Sounds is planning a worldwide edition for June 8th. It contains nine tracks barely 45 minutes long but the opener “Stay Close” is a stand out song worth all the effort. The video creates a dreamscape awash in sun, sand and Mediterranean waters of their Barcelona base as directed by Weird Days. The vocals almost sound as if they’ve invited Animal Collective to their party and I’m happy to join in as well. Get up, get up!
