    REVIEWS:

    "If there's a burgeoning psych scene in the north-east (and I'm not betting against it) then surely Newcastle five-piece Kobadelta are at the vanguard. Their new EP is a real cracker-jack, these four nuggets glinting with real class - imagine The Doors getting their rumble on. Hang on to their coat tails when the band launch the EP at the Star & Shadow on Friday 26th September." The Crack Magazine (September 2014)

    "The EP delves into sounds across various genres, including indie, psychedelia, post-punk and even contains some heavy riffage. Not ones to settle as another band that fit neatly in a box, they explain the EP is a result of "experimenting with a range of ideas on our last few releases. We feel that the EP is the best representation yet of what we consider to be Kobadelta's 'sound'." This sound is one full of freshness and ideas, all tinged with an element of menace throughout, giving the EP cohesion and keeping the listener on the edge of their seat." - NARC. Magazine (September 2014)

    "It’s no real wonder that Kobadelta have already rubbed metaphorical shoulder with the likes of Shaun Ryder and Peter Hook this year. They’re destined for big things. The Stockton Weekender will have no doubt served as a great platform for the group to perform their music to a large audience and it’s one that will only get bigger. Their brand of Indie, psychedelia, blues and heavy rock is, or at least sounds unique. The rambling vocals of Dom Noble fit perfectly with the meandering guitars and throbbing bass over often manic drums as they exude some rather complicated if not sometimes risqué lyrics. Opener, Siam won’t get much radio airplay for instance (unless there are some deaf programmers around – let’s hope so), but in some way that’s no big deal as there are another three crackers to pick from. The lead track does contains an infectious hook and strap-line and will ensure that at least your feet are tapping. It does in less than three minutes what many tracks fail to do in twice the time. Repetition provides that curious blend of punk and metal. Two opposing forces which Kobadelta somehow manage to marry together in harmony. A wonderful middle section where guitars are allowed to freely weep over a mystically appropriate interlude. The group are often compared to The Doors. It’s something that they don’t intend, but it’s quite a compliment. They Can’t Hurt Me has more than a nod in the direction of Morrison’s men as its psychedelic feel accompanied by subtle keyboards develop into marvellous rolling drums on occasion. Closing with The Heretic, a blues-psych affair with a fantastic distorted bass swaggers from start to finish with its arse showing proudly out of its worn-out, ripped jeans like a band that was born to make music as if their lives depended on it. Kobadelta are a breath of fresh air of that there is no doubt. Equally, they’ve probably only just started on their quest for widespread approval. Keep your ears open, they’ll be inside them soon." - Louder Than War (September 2014)

    "If ‘They Can’t Hurt Me’ isn’t the sound of a band possessed by the wandering spirit of Jim Morrison, I don’t know what is. Not that there is anything wrong with that. At least they are honest enough to wear that musical dashed heart constantly bleeding. Likewise, the track broods, threatens, glowers and conjures images of a dark urban underworld of serial killers and kerb crawling intended victims, and of death in the shadows that drag you to the soundtrack of your worst nightmare. And if ‘They Can’t Hurt Me’ displays the band exploring dynamic changes, ‘Repetition’ just goes straight for the jugular: primitive animal urges are poured into the very soul of the music with its psychedelic washes of guitar spiral skyward, relentless beats and driving bass grooves that break down into a wonderfully indulgent wig-out before remembering the plot and sprinting to the finish. There is as much atmosphere and space as there is music; fear held together by distant bass rumbles and fragile razor wire riffs before exploding in wildly overdriven guitars and the ricochet of skittering drum patterns that swirl in the vortex between those two extremes. ‘Siam’ matches sleazy lyrics to a more conventional song structure and swan song ‘The Heretic’ manages to revisit all of their musical tricks and traits into the perfect précis of everything that has gone before. Remain Distracted draws a geographic line from the creative anarchy of a Ladbroke Grove sixties twilight to Altamont as the hippy dream descends into madness, and a chronological line that links The Doors to Kyuss crossed by one that joins The Banshees to Temples. Although many bands channel retro sounds as a cynical marketing tool, the Newcastle based band have dived deep into the cold waters of a gothic-psychedelic darkness and returned to the surface clutching a black and shimmering musical pearl." - The Sense Of Doubt (September 2014)

    "If you’re a fan of the Doors or any band that has tried to emulate the Doors, you’ll be interested in Kobadelta’s bass-heavy psych-rock with a baritone vocalist and spot-on production. Check that sweet half-time breakdown." - Independent Clauses (September 2014)

    "Kobadelta are one of those bands who, to me, seem to have sprung out of nowhere. They seem to be gaining quite a following in their native North East, they are a five-piece from Newcastle, but deserve a wider audience. The band's Remain Distracted EP gets a digital release on 26th September, and consists of four diverse tracks which showcase a band who, if they are not going places, should be. Opening with ‘Siam’ a dirty slice of stoner psych which immediately brought to mind contemporary bands such as The Janitors and Cult of Dom Keller, especially through the guitar work. ‘Repetition’ opens with a great interplay between guitar and bass with some gritty reverb and feedback that contrast with the clean production and driving beat until we are hit with a great wahwah-heavy bridge. This is a really good psych rock track which is clearly rooted in the genre, yet also feels fresh. With ‘They Can’t Hurt Me’ the band go off-piste a bit more with some perhaps Morricone inspired tremolo sounds which recall the likes of Spindrift and Lola Colt. ‘The Heretic’ initially seems to be taking us into that territory, before exploding into a wall of reverb noise. Like the previous track, I picked up the spirit of The Doors, but while ‘They Can’t Hurt Me’ was The Doors of the desert, this was ‘The End’." - Backseat Mafia (September 2014)

    "Since I have started this blog there have been a few bands that have popped up from time to time and maintained an excellent quality of music without ever achieving the acclaim or broader success that they deserve. Newcastle quintet Kobadelta are one such band. This new EP from the lads is another storming collection of songs and kicks off with 'Siam', a song full of pulsing bass lines, hypnotic guitars and menacing vocals all peppered with Keith Moon drumming and a healthy dose of feedback. 'Repetition' is up next and this is a full on, leather clad, dark glasses wearing, whisky swigging, cigarette smoking rock'n'roll song. We're talking Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Primal Scream, the Stooges and My Bloody Valentine all rolled in to a sexy, testosterone fuelled explosion of excess - not a song you'd take home to meet your parents, that's for sure. The second half of the EP continues with 'They Can't Hurt Me' which is pitched somewhere between Space and Lou Reed and again the bass line purrs as the guitars flit around like newly awakened wasps full of disorientation and latent menace. As the EP comes to a close we are treated to the undeniably epic 'The Heretic' which should be wearing cowboy boots and spurrs. Possibly the single dirtiest scuzzball riff crackles through my speakers as the sneer vocals snake through the air and you're instantly transported to the early hours insanity of a 70s serial killer on a massive come down in a blood spattered basement. This is darkly seductive stuff and maybe that's why it's never quite gained the mainstream credit it deserves but, then again, music like this thrives in the shadows and the gutters not on the luridly neon E4 music slot just before Hollyoaks." - Listen With Monger (August 2014)

    "Hailing from the hometown that produced The Animals, Dire Straits and seen Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys gaining education in the city, are five-piece Kobadelta. The Newcastle-Upon-Tyne quintet are rapidly squaring up for their brand-new EP to be released to the world next month and – let it be known – these Geordie lads are nothing less than mesmerising. Having already supported the likes of Superfood and Noel Gallagher’s favourite band-of-the-moment Temples, Kobadelta, a group “dabbling in dark and heavy ‘indie-psych-rock’”, are finally stepping out on their own again and bringing their mature sounds back to the ears of their fans. If there was ever an EP to put a band into a prime position of kicking up a storm and producing an epidemic, then it’s Kobadelta’s ‘Remain Distracted‘. Invading ears immediately is the eerie ‘Siam’; as frontman Dom Noble sinisterly coos “I want you fooling next to me/I want you naked on all fours”, his impressively distinctive vocal is paired with slick and sliding guitar riffs. Kobadelta have managed to hit hard and rope in the listener with the first track of Remain Distracted. Following ‘Siam’ is both ‘They Can’t Hurt Me’ and ‘Repetition’. ‘They Can’t Hurt Me’ is menacingly moody; emitting an edgy, dark atmosphere which ultimately oozes sex appeal. However, contrasting track ‘Repetition’ is the band at their finest. Here, bass guitar chords are splashed with a Peter Hook-esque psychedelic influence echoing throughout the track; if there was any doubt whether this band weren’t worth the hype then one listen to ‘Repetition’ will change everything. To put it simply: the band make an almighty, unforgettable impact through their forthcoming release. Bubbling both enthusiasm and pure, raw talent, Kobadelta truly make it near impossible to ignore them." - GigSlutz (August 2014)

    "Desert-Rock has never sounded as seductive as Kobadelta’s new EP, ‘Remain Distracted’. It exists in a strange but impressive world between Queens Of The Stone Age and Arctic Monkeys, combining coolly-delivered vocals with searing guitars and brutal drumming. If Arctic Monkeys are “a heavy metal band disguised as an indie band“, then Kobadelta are definitely in the same boat." - Fresh Beats (August 2014)

    "I have seen the word ‘miracle’ applied to music before - using it in the pejorative sense; applying it in the context of Remain Distracted would be a huge injustice. God dislikes Rock and Blues; it is the Devil that jams to the best tunes (as we all know). If there was an hell-bound synonym for ‘miracle’ then I would apply it here. Few bands come across with such an unabatable confidence and conviction - the E.P. is rampantly assured and urgent (from start to finish). The performances are uniformly tight and staggering; each player is at the top of their game - the songs are nuanced and hugely memorable. Possessing a quartet of tracks, the E.P. is a controlled and restrained animal; one that leaves you begging for more - whilst offering so much wonder and brilliance. Taking in the sexualised and spiritual mythology of The Doors; ramping in some feral Punk fuzz (of The Stooges); tie it to bone-shaking and pre-coital lust of Black Sabbath, and you have a phenomenal concoction. Kobadelta ensure that other bands take a back seat - are used as guides and jumping-off points - and ensure their voice and soul comes through – ‘Remain Distracted’ is a distillation of their hard work, uniqueness and incomparable talent." - Musicmusingsandsuch (August 2014)

    "Voraciously chewing up the Newcastle psych rock and pub rock drone scenes with equal voracity, the burgeoning Geordie five-piece Kobadelta have yet to nail their sound. And this is a good thing, as their latest EP, Remain Distracted will testify. From drunkenly swaggering between emulating the late Lizard King Morrison to trespassing on Kasabian’s anthem Byzantine rock, the group manages to inhabit their influences with sneering and melancholic vigor. At other times they stray into Bauhaus, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and could even be a distant relation of the recent blossoming drone scene in Greece. Broodily launching forth from an opening Motorhead dirge riff, their hard rocking, monotonous droning ‘Repetition’ will do nicely as an introduction. Best played loud in a Wim Wenders 80s directed Berlin club, the rapid firing drum barrage signals a penchant for the hardliners vamped out on Gothic morose." - Monolith Cocktail (September 2014)

    "At times, while you listen, you’ll feel like a runway train trying to break the time barrier to meet Jim Morrison in that terrestrial plane of nothingness. When I can feel my music spirit trying to rage out of my soul…that’s usually a good sign. The guys are on the road to releasing their brand new EP, ‘Remain Distracted‘, on September 26th. I have listened to it & take my word for it…it’s a truly an out of body experience of raw sound. Reminded me of Disturbed meets old ’60s psych rock. “Siam” is my favourite cut from the package. Nice pace, hits high then low down a cascade highway, etc. Defines everything you should expect from Dom, Alex, Chris, Jon & Jordan’s collective brilliant sound." - Bored 4 Music (September 2014)

    "Like light from flickering wax enveloped candles, Kobadelta partially illuminate the walls of a dank cellar with their brooding gothic inspired film-noire encapsulations of sound. There is a warming rush that sweeps over the listener as Kobadelta extend their reach across the gloom, to tempt the audience to follow the purple sash into the unknown, and following the enticing caress is to end in a warming underground cave of bliss as the quintet writhe their sounds around the brain. Earlier iterations of their material hinted at the potential that lay within the band and their as yet unreleased four track EP – Remain Distracted – which I have had the fortune to be massaged by, extends the darkness with a satisfying embrace that out-reaches by far their previous release The Hidden Door which came out earlier this year and of itself was and is an EP to unfold as the sun drops in the sky." - Emerging Indie Bands (August 2014)
