In September of 2019, Deliluh took flight with sights set on new horizons. A long plotted scheme to uproot the group from their Toronto home and airlift them into the touring bastion of Europe seemed like a pot worth gambling their stack on. Their future in the old world was read with wide-eyed optimism, emboldened by two albums newly waxed and tour dates rolling in. Greener pastures with foreign allure, a promised land chalk full of experimental art and sound, and a plethora of unconventional venues ripe for the picking... its open season, what could possibly go wrong? Well, the best laid plans Amulet is the first release since Deliluhs departure from Toronto, an opening document of the groups transition to Europe. Mirrored images of the same composition occupy each side; A performed by their previous four-piece lineup (Kyle Knapp, Julius Pederson, Erika Wharton, Erik Jude) and B by the current active two-piece (Knapp and Pederson). Amulet is set to be released July 30th on 10 via Tin Angel Records.
Amulet demonstrates Deliluhs potential growing fearlessly in the face of a tight game. They promise a plentiful stash of recordings soon to be unearthed, giving the sense that their recently tested process of creation has been far from hindered. What comes next is anyone's guess, though Amulet at the very least reassures that were still, as always, in trusted hands. Knapp: Its adapt or parish these days.. Were fortunate to be safe and healthy, and thankfully, were not afraid of taking risks or evolving. Pedersen: It isnt the end goal that matters, but what you learn while exploring the paths that lead into unexplored terrain.
