Nurtured by equal parts raucous underground bass parties and all ages folk festivals, Delhi 2 Dublins always distinctive sound has evolved over the past decade into its own decisive genre, styled, Subcontinental Popa name that conveys both its deep South Asian roots and its expansive, crazy-fun appeal. The beautifully supercharged complexity of their sound flows from high-level folk and alternative-pop, blended and delivered across an array of acoustic instrumentsdhol, tabla, violin, guitarand electronic beatsand immersed in smart, heavy, sometimes gritty, and almost invariably joyful beats. Averaging 100 shows a year in places ranging from Canadian and U.S. clubs to Glastonbury and Burning Man to performing for over 100,000 people at Canada Day celebrations, Delhi 2 Dublin have the gift of connecting with masses of people, pulverizing their inhibitions, and getting them moving. In recent years, Delhi 2 Dublins has been honing their songwriting skills, which is most evident on their upcoming album, We Got This, which will be released through Warner Canada in Fall 2018. The album was produced by Toronto hitmaker Gavin Brown (Barenaked Ladies, Metric, Tragically Hip), who helped them harness their socially conscious sensibilities and awareness of their place in the world into making their most personal and meaningful collection of songs to date. With tracks like My People, Home (Everywhere I Go) and the title track, We Got This, Delhi 2 Dublin is speaking directly to their experiences as brown people in society and how that translates to people of all of colors and backgrounds. For their first time as a band, the members of Delhi 2 Dublin feel as though theyve been able to pull together everything theyve been through and put it into a collection of songs that that will reach everyone, while also leaving people thinking as theyre dancing and singing along.
