BIG BLACK DELTA will be opening for Gary Numan on Tuesday, March 11th. Tickets are still available and can be purchased online.

Big Black Delta is the solo project of Jonathan Bates (formerly of Mellowdrone). Their sound is heavily 80s influenced and at times feels like it will engulf you. It’s loud. It’s bombastic. And you better believe its danceable. Highly recommended for fans of M83, Mew, and Nine Inch Nails.

Bates has synesthesia which is defined as a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second pathway. Here’s how he described in an interview. “Smells and things like that I equate with colors and shapes. That’s my master. Whatever happened in 1979 or it happened yesterday, did that moment make me see colors? Can I make music that makes that moment pop up again? It’s really quite simple. Oh that—I’m going to make music that sounds like that.

“Big Black Delta sound so massive, it’s going to be weird if they don’t actually become massive.” — The Guardian

Once again, Big Black Delta will be opening for Gary Numan Tuesday March 11th. More info here. Get there early!
