Subiza is the fourth studio album by Spanish alternative dance band Delorean, released in March 2010 by Mushroom Pillow. Named after the Navarre town it was recorded in, the album follows the 2009 Ayrton Senna EP. Subiza was very well received by critics, and received a label of Best New Music by Pitchfork Media. Pitchfork placed it at number 41 on its list "The Top 50 Albums of 2010".
Subiza is a perfect cinematic dance pop, pure pleasure for you ears. Opener Stay Close, slowly building tension and a smattering of those odd yelps and vocal tics that peppered the album. It's less of a struggle to enjoy the songs they create and, as Stay Close slides effortlessly along to its joyful conclusion, you're lost in a swathe of keyboards and vocal swirls. They may have been doing this for over a decade - this is their fourth album - but the timing of Delorean's rise to prominence is perfect. With alternative dance building up a head of steam thanks to its more famous exponents, there's now a place at the table for a band like Delorean to reap the rewards.
Subiza was written from January to June 2009 in Barcelona. Recorded in July and August 2009 at Montreal Studios (Spain) and mixed at DNA Studios in NY, autumn 2009. Mastered at The Exchange in December 2009. Deliciously from Barcelona - Spain. Delorean make the kind of music that longs to be played on a warm summer's evening, possibly around a campfire, probably in a gorgeous beach setting. Subiza is a perfect cinematic dance pop, pure pleasure for you ears.
Delorean helped define the bright, beachside vibe of last summer's indie landscape, but they also deserve to be placed in a broader context. On their new album, Subiza, the Spanish four-piece deploys the build-and-burst tempos of 90s house and techno music, and they do so explicitly, never shying away from arms-in-the-air piano bridges or incandescent raves
It's no surprise that they come from Barcelona, recorded this album only a few miles away from Pamplona, and DJ regularly in the area - it evokes the beaches of Ibiza so perfectly that at times, you need to stand back and remind yourself that you're listening to a guitar band. After being battered with dance-rock acts who don't understand the first thing about dance for the last five years, this is a revelation.
On their new album, Subiza, the Spanish four-piece deploys the build-and-burst tempos of 90s house and techno music, and they do so explicitly, never shying away from arms-in-the-air piano bridges or incandescent raves. Named in honor of the small Basque town where it was recorded, Subiza could also be a neologism that describes Delorean’s hybrid aesthetic: While Subiza clearly conveys the spring break forever spirit of Ibiza techno through its house synth refrains and resonant, decadent rhythms, the album also speaks to the Spanish band’s under-the-radar indie-rock background through a structural.
Delorean are far less grounded in rock, however, and they benefit greatly from modern-day technology.
