Discovery: Demelza

Demelza are an indie rock band from Birmingham whose punchy, melodic new track Little Me caught my ear.

By Graeme Smith

Little Me has a classic British indie rock feel about it. Think turn of the century bands like Bombay Bicycle Club and Kate Nash. The vocals are perhaps its crowning feature though. Lead singer Cherry’s voice is pleadingly beautiful as she tells a story of longing and the feeling of being left behind.

Demelza are a young British band which I think have a bright future ahead. They’d be great to catch live and, with a couple of planned tour dates in London and their native Birmingham, that is an increasing possibility. Hopefully they’ll come up North too in the post-COVID world.
