With a delta blues type swagger and meanness to the slide guitar, The Delta Niles give a modern classic rock n’ roll foot stomper with their new track titled ‘Dust Me Down’. This was like a breath of fresh air for me today because the track gets right to the guts of rock (yes, rock) and cuts through all of the studio trickery and delivers a song that brings me back to those glory days of The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and, yes, even The Black Crowes. With that Southern tinge and Midwest growl, The Nile Deltas will be known twenty years from now.
About The Nile Deltas
The Nile Deltas (from the East Midlands) is a rock ‘n’ roll band on their own terms, an unashamed ‘song’ band with a voice up front drenched in soul. Soaking up the influences of their influences, The Nile Deltas have arrived at their own place – a very British rock band with an American flavor, think early Whitesnake with a feathering of The Black Crowes, Free with a faint aroma of Blackberry Smoke.
Vocalist Craig Blencowe soars over a band that is committed to providing just the platform to allow him to do this; serving the song, yet providing an irresistible no frill, larger than life rock ‘n’ roll sound. With two guitarists and a Hammond/Piano player, the band dishes it up old school, with dynamic interplay and intuitive respect for the song.
‘It’s all about getting six guys in a room, shooting for this big beautiful noise and STILL leaving space in the whole thing.’
The six-piece have had an interesting year since their successful performance at Ramblin’ Man Fair 2017, writing and then recording new material at legendary Rockfield Studios before releasing their debut EP ‘LIFE’ in December 2018.
