"Side Of The Road" Music Video by Big Black Delta

BIG-BLACK-DELTA-211633-PLS-CREDIT-JAMES-MORIARTYMellowdrone‘s band founder Jonathan Bates put the group on hiatus, bought a used laptop from Alessandro Cortini (of Nine Inch Nails and SONOIO), and created a solo project called Big Black Delta. The Highland Park denizen’s latest single, “Side Of The Road,” sounds like the Knight Rider theme song distorted into a pop lullaby high on love. Heavy with digi-beats and deep synths, the track still carries Bates’ usual dark edge but he’s able to lighten it with his mechanically enhanced melodic voice. The accompanying music video was directed by Warren Kommers and is probably based on Bates’ favorite dream where he is trapped in the movie Tron:

Big Black Delta‘s new self-titled album will be released on April 29th via Masters Of Bates and features appearances from Cortini as well as Morgan Kibby (of M83 and White Sea).
