One shot music video by the band whose three bandmates have actually never all been in the same place at the same time (yep, you read that right!). Music taken from The Deltahorse's debut album 'Transatlantic'. Available on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/tra...

Fully guided by singer Vadim Zeberg’s facial expressions, and with no additional background happenings to distract the observer’s attention, there’s always a certain risk of one-shots not working out, but The Deltahorse aren’t looking for easy answers, just the questions that burn. Consequently, their debut video “Call It a Day” turned out raw, plain, spirited and with a sense of humor—the surprise here is that actually nothing’s happening. “Some wait for buses. Some wait for trains. I wait for rain.” The surprise is there’s no surprise in here.

" Sonically unique, yet remarkably cohesive…" — ELMORE MAGAZINE, USA
" A sound that is unique unto themselves…" — METRATONE, AUS
" An insane musical force to be reckoned with…" — IMPOSE MAGAZINE, USA
" A vibe unlike anything else being played right now…" — INNOCENT WORDS, USA

Led by founder and bassist Sash, Morphine saxophonist Dana Colley and singer Vadim Zeberg, the band subverts all assumptions and expectations by creating something which feels inherently lived-in and communal even when separated by great distances. Sash is located in Berlin while Zeberg calls Belfast home--Colley spends his time in Boston. Despite the fact that they can't perform together and, in fact, have rarely, if ever, seen each other face to face, the band's sound never feels false or broken by the landscape that divides them. They start from a complete blank with each song they record, never seeing the movements and physical markers that allow other bands to easily play off one another.

By creating a "Transatlantic Sound" (as it is the Atlantic Ocean that divides them) that allows them to act as though they're simply friends gathering at one of their homes for an impromptu jam session. There is no genre that the band adheres to, no rigid blueprint that guides their ambition. They carve out a unique musical niche that allows them to pick and choose among a dozen different aesthetics while laying allegiance to none. From labyrinthine bass hooks and skronking Electric Baritone Saxophone lines to dense grooves and a capricious vocal euphoria, they build a sound that holds you captive, awed, pensive, before ultimately inviting you to become completely immersed within their strange and turbulent noise.

On TRANSATLANTIC, their upcoming debut full-length, the songs clatter and thunder and build up an unstoppable head of steam before giving up their last gasp of air and fading back in your speakers. The music calls particular attention to their intuitive interplay, which is rather miraculous given their various locations. So while the band may never see each other's faces and movements while recording, their songs always feel like the end result of a late night among friends.
