D3lta is knocking down doors in his native country with a series of genre-bending releases. He’s hardly been off the TV in Greece, and has gone from prestigious supports (LondonGrammar) to sold-out headline shows in just 12 months – powered by the breakaway hit‘Strange’.Now the Athens-born and Greek/UK citizen is set to release his debut EP ‘Into The Rabbit Hole”

His story – a stylistic and lyrical escape from military service in a repressed country – is a powerful one that resonates with all those who’ve held back their creativity. The EP shows all the facets of the D3lta vision in 4 songs. It’s headed by the double punch of pop-blues stomper ‘Hot Gun’ and the epic build of ‘Punching Bag’, a jewel that sparkles with the swagger and melody of Oasis and (say it) Embraces, but for the 2020s. Then comes the already proven ‘Hello’ with its fusion of glam and rock, and the widescreen ‘Lose Myself’. The tracks are appropriately produced by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Adele) and Thomas Mitchener (Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, La Roux) The concept behind the EP draws inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland – a metaphor for embarking on the journey of self-discovery, following a character’s descent into the unknown, encouraged to reflect on their own path towards self-exploration. It is illustrated by the cover image showing D3lta himself spiraling down, discarding his previous identities, shedding old layers, and embracing new ones. Now resident back in the UK D3lta is pulling together a series of live shows to be announced soon – expect the unexpected.

He has proven himself time and time again to be an artist who isn’t afraid to try new things
and who has never fit into the stereotypical boxes of what an artist should sound like…
– Pop Wrapped
