If you’re into driving synths, well-crafted lyrics and vocals with soulful grit then this act will be of interest. Inspired by alternative 80s synth-pop and lyrical greats such as Cohen, Young, Waits and Van Morrison, Dubliner Robert Delaney has infused an interesting mix of sounds to create something big and upbeat but also deep and contemplative.
Singer/songwriter Robert Delaney hails from Dublin, Ireland and has recently released his second studio album, 'Numbers' to much acclaim. A grittier and more electronic departure from earlier material, this album is replete with driving synths and knowing lyrics. After two years spent touring and writing in Germany, Robert released singles 'That Faithless Love' and 'Gold' achieving significant radio play in Ireland and the UK.
