Premiere: Delilah Rose - Take the Wheel
Take an exclusive listen to the first new music in four years from WA rocker
Four years on from her Good Grief EP, Boorloo / Perth singer, songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Delilah Rose makes a rollicking return in the form of new single, Take the Wheel, out May 24 and premiering on Pilerats today!
Formerly Delilah Rose and the Gunslingers, Delilah and the Gunslingers have headed into separate horizons, with Delilah forming a new handpicked, all-female band, as they herald a new evolution of Delilah’s music.
Opening with urgent drums before giving way to a big, distorted guitar lead and Delilah’s smokey, enchanting vocals, Take the Wheel takes the rock and roll aspect from Delilah Rose and the Gunslingers unique take on bluesy-country-rock and turns it up to 11, with Rose showing off a commanding new side to her addictive brand of groove-laden sounds that are bringing the best aspects of 70s rock kicking and screaming into 2022.
Delilah elaborates on the track, saying Take the Wheel “is about the hassle of the hustle! It's about the idea that we think we're in control of this one big extraordinary life and to an extent we are, or are we? It's a snapshot of themes that have been affecting us all in the past year; the war in Ukraine, climate change, Trump, device usage, mental health, refugees, patriarchal and societal pressures. Who the hell is driving this thing?”
