We’re delighted to be working with The Deslondes again!

The Deslondes will promoting their critically acclaimed new album Hurry Home on this January tour of the UK, which included an appearance at the Celtic Connections festival.

The Deslondes follow up their impressive debut album with the equally fine Hurry Home. Less country-inclined than its predecessor the album finds the band roaming through a variety of styles – swampy southern roots, 1950s rockabilly, and classic rhythm & blues that, with several members of the band singing lead on various songs, gives the album a truly dynamic feel.

Hurry Home represents a sonic shift from the country-folk of their debut to a psychedelic, electrified soul sound, with a stronger emphasis on organ and electric guitar. The band split up songwriting and lead vocal duties among its five members, Sam Doores, Riley Downing, Dan Cutler, John James Tourville and Cameron Snyder, continuing its democratic ethos and musical versatility.

The album that emerged is Hurry Home. ‘It’s a fitting title for this album because our lives and our songwriting revolve around leaving and returning, or searching for, home,’ says the band. ‘And home can be a physical place, a relationship, or a state of mind.’
