Delaney Davidson travels Europe wíth band this month


In the years since he first surfaced from the depths that spawned him, Delaney Davidson has been one of the most vividly realized characters in New Zealand music. 'Self Decapitation' and 'Bad Luck Man' it seems were paving the way for greater, grittier things to arrive. His new album 'Swim Down Low' out on Outside Inside Records is a rough cut slice of bad taste blues and it makes for one hell of a record.

As you dive in you are treated to heartsick howlers, fishing tales, backwater dramas, and all manner of rancid little ditties. The twang has been left out in the sun too long and it has grown sour. His stabs at sentimentality (such as 'The Poison Song') manage to be sincere even if you're constantly waiting for that knowing wink or a sly tip of his hand. 'Swim Down Low' is an album that is sincere and vicious in equal measure. This month Delaney Davidson embarks on a European tour wíth a band (consisting of The Mojomatics members) and travels through Italy, Switzerland, Germany, France and The Netherlands (including two Dutch show with The Urban Voodoo Machine and Graveyard Train).
