01.24: Trends paint dream pop picture with show at The Roar Room

On January 24th, dream pop quartet Trends will mark the release of their debut album Palettes with a colorful show at The Roar Room. Trends has grown from lead vocalist Marina Paiz's lo-fi solo project to a four-piece indie powerhouse, creating songs that expand from soft and introspective musings to rapid-fire proclamations in both sound and verse. Palettes has the band processing life's complex moments through song; on tracks like "Ampersand" and "Blanket Party", Trends explore grief and missed opportunity, as well as what we do to cope and make our own way through our lives. Take a look at the music video for "Branches", a single from Palettes, below. - Will Sisskind

New EP from draag drops in February; watch video for new single "Ghost Leak"

Indie shoegaze quartet draag announced today that their second EP, Clara Luz, will drop on February 21. The first single from that EP, "Ghost Leak", is already out, along with its music video. As on draag's debut EP, 2018's Nontoxic Process, "Ghost Leak" provides a patois of shoegaze trippiness that takes inspiration from Boards of Canada and My Bloody Valentine. Producing "Ghost Leak" and the rest of Clara Luz came with a glut of trauma for the band; the EP explores processing such trauma, dealing with the scary parts of it, and discovering how it can become empowering. Take a look at the video for "Ghost Leak" below, and discover the rest of Clara Luz for yourself when it comes out in February. - Will Sisskind

   

Happy Birthday, Deli Magazine New England!

There are so many things to be grateful for today: family, friends, good food, good times. Here at Deli New England, we are grateful for one more thing, and that is the opportunity to cover New England’s always-thriving music scene. For ten years, we have been privileged to witness the rise of talented artists from Connecticut’s New York border to Maine’s Atlantic seaboard. Since the birth of this branch, on this date ten years ago, we have had our many editors explore with delight hip-hop acts, indie-pop darlings, rock-punks, and so much more. Below you will find nine posts from different editors of this magazine over the last ten years. A big thank you to Meghan Chiampa for kicking off this journey and letting me know of the special occasion at hand. Happy holidays and happy reading! - Rene Cobar
