KCRW Presents: Delta Rae

August 8, 2012The North Carolina sextet has attracted some attention for its swampy track "Bottom of the River." With a metal trashcan, many pairs of drumsticks and four powerful singers, Delta Rae creates a cacophony of bluesy, gospel-tinged pop music, complete with stomping feet.

The North Carolina sextet Delta Rae first caught my attention with its swampy track "Bottom of the River." The group came to our studios with a setup unlike any other band we've hosted at KCRW: a metal trashcan, a large chain and many pairs of drumsticks. Four members of Delta Rae sing lead, while everyone in the band joins in to create a cacophony of bluesy, gospel-tinged pop music, complete with stomping feet.
