Del Rey

*Taken from Del Rey's Myspac.

Del Rey is a heavy instrumental post-rock quartet that was formed in Chicago in 1997. Rather than the typical post-rock sound, Del Rey offer more of an amalgam of different genres, including punk, psychedelic rock, and even electronic. Each member of the band is a multi-instrumentalist, which adds to the complexity of their sound. They often use two drummers when playing live.

Del Rey is a heavy instrumental post-rock quartet that was formed in Chicago in 1997. Rather than the typical post-rock sound, Del Rey offer more of an amalgam of different genres, including punk, psychedelic rock, and even electronic. Each member of the band is a multi-instrumentalist, which adds to the complexity of their sound. They often use two drummers when playing live. Their sound is highly dynamic, but lacks the loud-soft-loud predictability of MOGWAI. Instead, they focus on melody, in fact they often focus on several at a time, opting to layer different guitar sounds to create their own brand of thick, dramatic instrumental rock. DEL REY released their first EP in 1999, entitled "dlry", and followed it with their debut LP "Speak it Not Loud" in 2001. Their sound continued to grow with 2003’s "Darkness & Distance", and 2006’s "A Pyramid for the Living". They continue to create sweeping instrumental rock that never ceases to experiment in both drama and subtlety, always creating new combinations of rhythm, melody and texture. Their live shows have also been extensively praised for their intensity and emotion. « hide
