Press release: Delgirl touring to Wellington for NZ Music Month
Delgirl invade Wellington for NZ Music Month
Playing selected dates: 30 May - 2 June
Delgirl is a group of three Dunedin based women, who produce a unique blend of folk, roots, blues, jazz and alt country music resulting in beautiful big harmonies, built around the double bass, guitar, banjo, ukuleles & snare/percussion.
Having recently released their debut album "two, maybe three, days ride", and being already on to their second pressing, they decided a jaunt to Wellington for shameless self promotion and a trip to the Minnie Cooper shoe store was in order...
The Delgirls comment: "We've had a lot of play on National Radio, (churs RNZ) so people from all over NZ have been contacting us to see when we were coming up to play."
Delgirl have a strong following in the South Island, yet as William Dart noted in his review on Concert FM "...They've been around for seven years but so far remain a South Island secret. I was hooked irretrievably from their opening song..."
If you like your NZ music tinged with the flavours of Americana and indie folk then Delgirl have got a place at the table set for you.
Their tunes have been compared to The Be Good Tanyas, Tres Chicas and the Triplets of Belleville. The Delgirl sound, according to Graham Reid, (www.elsewhere.co.nz) "has uniquely close harmony, suggestions of alt.country and Polynesia, (with) understated balladry and smart lyrics".
With trips to Te Papa and many shops and cafes in the offing, it's more than just a holiday - they'll play some damn fine music that will hook a few more converts to the cult of Delgirl...
