DeLila Black is making music we should all be hearing: compositions that condemn authoritarian impulses and roar out with a bluesy twang against racist violence.

 

While DeLila’s songs have been described as fitting into wildly disparate genres, from country and Americana to punk and alternative rock, her work ultimately defies classification. She takes inspiration from the DIY ethos of punk and instills it with the sense of shared responsibility and community resilience that accompanies folk music across the globe

A little more traditional this time with a bluegrass waltz. A fundrasier for Grassroots Law Project.
I am absolutely thrilled to have Ben Paley as a guest musician, playing fiddle on this track. What an honour to have had the exquisite sounds from two generations of Paleys on my music.

DeLila Black

Why she’s on your radar: When you catch a glimpse of a music video that features band members on electronic drums, guitar and bullwhip, it’s natural to be intrigued. The vid in question accompanies a demo of “You’re So Common (Demon Fighting),” a piece that bends country roots in a New Wave direction as the singer advocates for freedom from oppression with hardcore punk intensity. The song also earned effusive praise from Tony Visconti, a producer best known for his work with David Bowie and T. Rex.

Why she will keep your attention:

 Black — who was born in Haiti, lived in New York for a time and now resides in London — is a vibrant exponent of the Black queer punk movement. She’s also an accomplished performance artist who brings a visceral aggression to the sound she’s calling “Electro-Mountain, Country-Noire, Punk-Country, Afro-Billy, Roots-Rodeo-Rocknroll.”

DeLila Black first popped up on my radar via Twitter. She got my attention by, well, being a Black, queer, UK-based country artist, which is unusual enough. But here’s where I gotta cop to something:

I didn’t check out her music until this week. I’d have gotten to it eventually (my list is long) but the eruption of the Black Lives Matter protests and the conversation around them sent Black artists to the top of my list.

COWBOY HATS, PICKUP TRUCKS, AND A SPOT OF TEA: UK QUEER COUNTRY

By James Barker, Staff Writer

DeLila Black is one of the most exciting artists in country music right now. On her website.  Black describes her sound: ‘Imagine k.d. lang, Grace Jones and Jack White at church, then imagine them at Fight Club.’ Black pushes the borders of genre, which can just box people in, but her (alt) Americana sound – what she calls “Electro-mountain” music – deserves to be right at the heart of country. Black is also a member of the Americana Music Association UK. Merging emotional intimacy with political fervour, Black’s work brings together music with visuals to push us to confront the world’s injustices and fight for

a truly anti-racist and queer-embracing future.
