Following on from the release of their breakout tracks Six Week Party, Irate and Blue Jeans, Colchester 4-piece Anorak Patch have shared their latest release, Delilah – a picturesque track discussing the desire to leave the small town you call home for something bigger, proving why Anorak Patch are one of the most exciting young bands around right now.
Speaking about the track, the band states
Delilah is a story. It’s about a girl who’s struggling her way through life…the song is a snapshot of how difficult life can be when you are in a bad headspace without good people around you. It’s a lonely place to be. The ‘town’ is just a reference to wanting something more than the place you grew up in…I guess in that sense it’s a little autobiographical.
Anorak Patch have already been championed by the likes of BBC6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Radio X and DIY, amongst others and have recently been snapped up by Nice Swan Records, who are home to the likes of Sports Team and Hotel Lux.
Delilah is available to pre-order on a 7’’ vinyl as of today, with Blue Jeans on its B-side, scheduled to be released on December 13th.
With the band’s drummer being just 15, with the eldest member 18, Delilah showcases the band’s talent at a young age. Anorak Patch are set to play their debut headline shows soon, including a show in their hometown of Colchester before a London headline gig next year.
