Produced by Rehab Sound Recordings, 2010's EP successfully captures Delta Mainline’s dynamic live sound, as the songs cascade from sweet and simple melodies into intense sonic experimentation.
A teaser of things to come, this distinctive sound brought a number of 5-star reviews and radio play both in the UK (including BBC Radio One) and overseas - most notably in Australia, the USA and across Europe.
‘Hope/Grace’ was selected to feature on the psychedelic compilation album ‘Strung Out Volume One’ through The Third Wave Collective, which showcases "the cream of the guitar-based psychedelia-influenced crop" (Drowned in Sound). Other artists on this compilation included The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Caribou, Dead Meadow and Spectrum.
Meanwhile, Andy Snipper – of Music-News.com – cited closing track ‘Holy Slow Train’ as “one of the tracks of the year”, whilst also adding of the EP “If there is anyone else capable of the integrity of this musical vision at the moment I would love to hear them.”
