Music Review: Delilah – From The Roots Up

Atlantic
Records signed 21 year old singer/songwriter Delilah, and since then the Paris
born musician has been building up her musical portfolio.  She has toured with Chase & Status and of
course briefly graced Prince’s tour with her presence, and now we’re finally
getting to experience her debut album, From The
Roots Up
.  


Delilah, (whose real name is Paloma Stoecker) has shown a strong love for music from a
young age, since then she has worked hard to get where she is. From the initial
listen of the album I certainly can’t pin it down into one particular genre,
she seeps into a variety of fields but that’s no bad thing. If anything it
gives her options for future releases, and means that her appeal will benefit
more listeners.  Without a doubt,
those who are listening can enjoy music to suit the mood or setting – something
which is often forgotten with commercial music today. 


Tucked into
this chilled album are a bundle of potential chart topping songs, along with
the chart beauty that hit the airwaves, Go.
  The
whole album oozes ambient electronic pop, unlike other albums this one keeps
you guessing. Every time I listen I think I know the type of artist she wants
to be portrayed as but, she really does show such maturity for her age through
her lyrics and sounds, putting her into many categories.  You can especially hear and feel the sentiment
in the song Insecure, and even
though its full of powerful emotion, it still remains gentle.  Her song Love You So, is one of my favourites, the great musical accompaniment
 teamed with her effortless emotive
vocals, make it flawless.  This seems to be
the theme throughout the entire 12 tracks on the album.


When thinking
of other artists to compare her to, the first one that springs to mind is Sia. I
think their vocal pitches and smooth ambient melodies are very similar but
simply beautiful. Both artists have the same effect when you hear their tracks,
and like Sia with her career, she’s collaborated with a wide range of artists
from a variety of genres – I believe Delilah will do the same, if not better.


With this
album so many songs sooth like a lullaby, yet grab you with the intensity.  It’s exciting to know such a young artist is showing
such growth in her music, I believe we really will see this girl bloom even
more.
