Deleyaman – 00

Multi-ethnic mixture of religious, film and dance music by post-punks

Trending Now

Armenian liturgical chants and Joy Division may not be the most obviously winning influences, but Deleyaman (also including French, Turkish, Swedish, Georgian, Orthodox, Anglican, Cramps, Banshees and Bach inspirations in its five-piece fold) create a charismatic, shifting, sensual ambience from these dirge-like elements.

It’s gypsy cathedral music, exotically sacred and nomadically slippery, plus a touch of the dancefloor and the spy film, with unearthly male and female spiritual cries.
