With its irreverent "no bikinis, no tan line" refrain, New Yorker Delia Dane's ode to the city she calls home is the perfect soundtrack to this Easter's upcoming – and unseasonably warm – Bank Holiday weekend.
Originally from Florida, Dane previously recorded as a solo under the name DVWEZ, and as one half of synth-pop duo Palmedo. Now releasing under her own name, Dane's new material seems to have received an injection of laidback, loungeworthy vibes. New single "Brick in New York" is no exception: a sun-drenched, beach-ready cut that sees her Stateside glamour straddle the Atlantic – hopefully bringing the warm weather with it. Dane's vocal is seductively nonchalent over "Brick..."'s well-sprung beats; a shameless depiction of that longed-for summertime lull.
"'Brick In New York' is a playful, Pop&B track that highlights my unfiltered expression," Dane explains of the track. "I'm challenging myself to blur the lines of hip-hop, pop, and R&B and make music that is casual and excessive. I just want to have fun, and I don't want there to be any boundaries when I’m writing."
