Premiere: Deliah – ‘Better The Devil’

Since meeting at uni, Liverpool duo Michelle Harris and Alex Dopierala – aka Deliah – have received acclaim from Fortitude Magazine and BBC Introducing for their debut Marble Heart, and supported the likes of Ady Suleiman and Maverick Sabre. Now, back with a brand new single, the future is looking bright for Deliah…

Fusing together elements of RnB, glitchy electro beats and smooth, powerful vocals alongside rich musical layers, ‘Better The Devil’ is a soulful and empowering offering that’ll leave you wanting more from this innovative duo.

Of the track, the band say:

“Better the Devil is an almost sarcastic look on being oppressed. Writing it was the biggest release from a hard time, and we hope it can do the same for others.”

Listen to ‘Better The Devil’, for the first time, here:
