LONDON, England – Se Delan, the dark, alternative, new-wave duo made up of multi-instrumentalist Justin Greaves (Crippled Black Phoenix) and Swedish singer Belinda Kordic, has launched a lyric video for the track “Blue Bird” from its recently released sophomore album, Drifter..
Se Delan vocalist Belinda Kordic comments on the song: “As the world is going to serious shits (with a big no thanks to mankind), which the media so generously reminds us of every single day, I retreat to the comfort that there may be a higher being out there. Being grateful and finding joy in the little things in life gives me hope and keeps me grounded.”
The follow-up to 2014’s The Fall, Se Delan set about to make an album that felt raw, more natural and human. Together with their shared influences (“music, film and life”) and a mutual understanding of the way each other works has led to Se Delan creating an album that musically and lyrically looks at madness and how the line between sanity and insanity can at times appear frighteningly thin.
Drifter takes the slow and dreamy nature of the music from the duo’s debut album The Fall and moves it to a far darker place through the lyrics and layers of sound that pulsate throughout the record. By giving up all pretentions and just following their hearts, Justin and Belinda recorded (with Ritchie Chappell at Tripdown Studio) in a way that simply captures how they felt as humanly as possible.
