REVIEWS:

"As the lead single from a new EP due later in the summer Kobadelta’s Hold Yr’self, like the bastard offspring of Jethro Tull and Black Sabbath, may be something of a leap forward stylistically but retains the dark marauding blues that is at the heart of the band’s sound. While the signature flute hook might be the best thing since Aqualung, the black gold guitar riff that accompanies it is pure Kobadelta, as it builds into a hypnotic groove reminiscent of early Verve but with the volume turned up to 11." - NARC. Magazine (May 2016)

"Their lead singer also somehow found himself on stage with Nick Cave when he last played Sage Gateshead. But if anyone can trade vocals with Cave, then surely it’s Kobadelta’s frontman, whose commanding presence is all over their new single, Hold Yr’self. The band swirl up a darkly imposing and scuzzily psychedelic backdrop for Dom’s authoritative pronouncements to be handed down to listeners as though written on stone tablets." - The Crack Magazine (May 2016)

"The single itself is a primitive testimony to Kobadelta’s sound, luring you in with tribalistic pan pipes before the fury of Chris Malliris’ thumping drums come crashing down upon listeners . Tinged with wavering psychedelic riffs and heavy distortion throughout, ‘Hold Yr’self’ is as atmospherically alluring as it raw and raucous. Dom Nobles’ dark lyricism, “it wasn’t suicide, I was pushed” encapsulates the foreboding atmosphere perfectly with smooth, deep vocals that beckon listeners down the rabbit hole." - Gigs North East (June 2016)

"Geordie gents Kobadelta are back with new single, ‘Hold Yr’self’, which is accompanied by a hectic point of view video that leaves you with a spot of motion sickness. The Doors meets Primal Scream with Nick Cave on production duties gives you a flavour of this tune, but the wall of guitars blurred together with a growling bass, a few blasts of flute and a swirl of ambience tell the full story. These guys have consistently been pumping out tunes that impress, arouse and generally grab you by whichever genitals you are in possession of, but it feels like they need that leg up now the next level. Big radio airplay, a management deal or some attention stateside should do it, but if there’s any justice in the world Kobadelta will be more of a household name by the time Santa starts steaming his special suit." - Listen With Monger (June 2016)

about

Kobadelta Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK

A five piece rock band from Newcastle dabbling in dark and heavy psych-tinged rock...

"Kobadelta are frantic and feral. This Newcastle-based five-piece have supported the likes of Splashh and Temples, but they're not quite as psychedelic as those bands, instead pushing a far more muscular, gnashing sound. Their second EP, 'Remain Distracted', is out now." - NME

Track Name: Hold Yr'self
Hold yourself together only just,
It wasn't suicide I was pushed,
Out of the window and into the fire,
Falling through the eye of a needle,
Hold yourself together, don't make a fuss,
But I suppose that I was asking far too much,
He got down on his knees and started listening to the trees,
"You're a fool if you believe we are alone" said Socrates,

Won't you please stop talking?

Hold yourself together only just,
It wasn't suicide I was pushed,
Out of the window and into the fire,
Falling through the eye of a needle,
Hold yourself together never trust,
In that old she-devil lady luck,
Shout it from the rooftops, you don't want this feeling to stop,
It just hits the spot,

Won't you please stop talking?
Track Name: Ride By The Light
I crept in with the stethoscope I broke the safe,
I put the emerald inside the case,
Stole the secret file on time and space, left the room without a trace,
They blame the doctors, the doctors blame their wives,
For their great expectations of the finer things in life,
But between you and I, these are things that money cannot buy,

Now we ride by the light of a silvery moon,
We live and we die, under the same sky as you

When did second-hand become a vintage suit?
The secret ingredient to the home-made soup,
Every little thing that you said it came true, but I never believed you,
The factory keeps your children at work,
But it causes heartache to sweet Mother Earth,
It's a matter of fact, an unwritten rule,
A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do,

Now we ride by the light of a silvery moon,
We live and we die, under the same sky,
Now we ride by the light of a silvery moon,
We live and we die, under the same sky as you
