Delilah’s Chaka Khan referencing Go (first featured in these quarters back in August) has become one of the sleeper hits of autumn in the UK. With just the right amount of radio exposure and tours with the likes of Chase & Status and Maverick Sabre, she’s become a real commercial proposition without having been burdened with the weight of hype and expectation. It’s a difficult line for an artist to straddle – over exposure can so quickly lead to backlash, but Delilah seems to have got it just right.
So now it’s time for some new material. With lyrics about loneliness, falling apart, being left lost and ‘pointing a gun towards my oldest friend’ Love You So may not quite be the happily romantic pop nugget that you might expect from the title. Musically it bears fruit as a classy string-laden mid-tempo piece of excellence, giving the strongest suggestion that Delilah will soon be finding her way to the radio-waves again.Delilah - Love You So
