Delorean recently announced the upcoming release of their sophomore album, Apar, out September 10th on True Panther Sounds  (and Mushroom Pillow in Spain/Portugal). Shortly following the album’s release, the band have lined up headlining tour dates in North America for October and November, spanning from San Francisco’s Independent, through NYC’s Webster Hall, and including Fun Fun Fest.  See all tour dates below.

Delorean made their first single “Spirit” available for streaming HERE and for purchase it here via iTunes.

Apar is Delorean’s follow up to 2010’s Subiza which brought the band world-wide critical acclaim with Pitchfork stating, “Synth-pop, Balearic disco, indie house:  Call it what you want.  Delorean just make beautiful, modern pop music,” and The New York Times said, “Delorean traffics in airy atmospherics and enveloping rhythm:  ideally, music for a dance floor in the hours preceding dawn.”  Delorean strove to embrace a more sophisticated relationship to sound recording and songwriting in order to push the stories and dynamics of this album to a deeper more complex place.  Leaving behind the ornate and layered production of Subiza, the chopped up female vocal samples have been replaced by actual singers and bare minimum of instrumentation is all that remains to support them.  A failed relationship, a national financial crisis and an embrace of a more sophisticated relationship to sound recording and songwriting push the stories and dynamics of this album to an even deeper more complex place. Through lead singer, lyricist and bassist Ekhi Lopeteg’s articulate lens, the record’s emotional undercurrent, and the band’s mastery of luxurious, coast-of-Spain beats, Apar is the most powerful, dynamic, and moving album of Delorean’s career.

Delorean is: Ekhi Lopetegi (lead vocals, bass), Guillermo Astrain (guitar), Unai Lazcano (keyboards) and Igor Escudeo (drums)
