Following on from the release of the Yes We Do 7” in June, Delivery are back with ‘Personal Effects/The Topic’, a double single release that continues to expand on the group’s razor-sharp blend of garage, post-punk and new-wave pop.
While the four tracks on Yes We Do were developed around the sound of the project’s initial home demos, ‘Personal Effects/The Topic’ capture the five-piece working in full collaboration for the first time. Across these tracks, programmed beats and synths make way for heaving live drums, relentless guitar interplay and left-of-centre saxophone bursts, while the band’s triune vocals (split between Rebecca Allan, Lisa Rashleigh and James Lynch) are more dynamic and incisive than ever.
If you have been reading Turntable Report you might recall this review of their Yes We Do single. In short, I loved them so much I imported the singles from Australia ASAP and was among the only places in the U.S. (besides Feel It) to carry it.
"Old dog Melbourne flexing new wave tricks, adrenalized debuts, The Knack taken to the Dry Cleaners, a single so darn excellent that Courtesy Desk placed an order with this Australian record label the moment they heard it and stock is on the way."
Here we are not even a year later and they are signed to Feel It and delivering (pun intended) an even better record. How is that even possible?!?! This double A side jammer is a dense blast of righteous garage rock and roll and sax. If you dig Sauna Youth, Salad Boys, Twerps, The Courtneys, and Joanna Gruesome, I can't imagine a single that will make you happier than this one. BEST SINGLE OF 2022 ALERT!
