Indie club rockers Delorean brought their airy, rhythmic synth-pop to Johnny Brenda’s last week. The band canceled its US tour last fall following a harrowing “virtual kidnapping” experience in Mexico City. Their set featured cuts from their new release, Apar, which sees the band working with more guitar heavy sounds while still maintaining the dance-y beats and expansive energy of their previous work.
Even though frontman Ekhi Lopetegi’s vocals were slightly subdued in the mix, the healthy Sunday night crowd was nonetheless warmly receptive to Delorean’s undeniable, driving synths that permeated the seamless set. Montreal native and experimental visual performance artist, Mas Ysa, provided support with atmospheric music marked by intensely emotional vocals.
