Delilah - Breathe

Once again, Delilah has struck gold.

Last year saw the release of the sultry Go and Love You So.  With the full album 'From The Roots Up' released in July, Breathe is more than enough to whet the appetite.

Delilah's silky, slightly breathy, vocal melts like chocolate as she details the effects of a stifling relationship.  The chilled production mixes lustrous string swells with elements of gentle dubstep, for a track that's part Sade, part ultra modern.  Jessie Ware is her most obvious contemporary, but whilst Ware focuses on sophistication and glittering production, Delilah has a darker, slightly grittier feel.  The single of Breathe additionally contains the duet version with Liam Bailey (also of Chase & Status fame) and a stonking remix by Sub Zero that matches the lyrical intensity with a huge drum and bass beat.  Download immediately.


Listen: Breathe is available now.  'From The Roots Up' is released on 30th July.
