A Deli Premiere: The Vandelles share single “Techromancer” + play Mercury on 7/13

Returning from a lengthy hiatus, nyc noise-surfers The Vandelles are premiering their new single “Techromancer” here on the Deli, from their forthcoming album "Hate Will Bring Us Together."  Working on other projects during the break hasn't tempered the bands penchant for twangy guitars and California beach vibrations.   The rhythm section comes on even harder this time around with a circular throbbing bass line and aggressive thrashing percussion. The idea of creating a new word for the songs title by combining modern video gameplay (Technomancer) with the groundbreaking sci-fi cyberpunk classic Neuromancer is intriguing on a number of levels.  “I'd rather be dead than you, I'd rather be black and blue, I'll greet the darkness when it comes” establishes the initial vocal line.  The quieter intro sets up a series of sonic explosions, building to the Nirvanesque chorus that invites us to “...come and get it, come and get it from me – I 'm always ready,” accompanied by slashing power chords over pounding drums and bass.  The band will play live at The Mercury Lounge on 7/13 with Texas shredders Ume, who have recently released new material of their own. - Dave Cromwell
