Delta Will – “Any Body”


A track from Delta Will‘s upcoming LP, Multitudes III, “Any Body” is a stirring effort with striking vocals and structural expansion. The initial vocal presence is one of suave retrospection, nicely aligning with wavering synths and guitar-based flourishes. The “come to my senses,” shift at 01:30 fully intrigues, as do interesting textures thereafter — like glistening harp-like effects and Jeff Buckley-esque vocals, which intertwine with an engrossing fervor. I’m also fondly reminded of Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis; the vocals emit a similar power and range, within an expressive song structure with flourishes of electro-pop, rock, and psychedelia. “Any Body” is a riveting success that has me solidly anticipating Multitudes III.

Per the artist, the track’s lyrics “explore the idea that life is much more expansive and interconnected than the limits of our bodies would have us believe.”

Delta Will is the project of Charles Tilden, who contributes lyrics, vocals, and numerous instruments. Keyboardist Brandon Johns, drummer Kevin Correia, and bassist Liam Smith also play on the track. The track’s music video is directed by filmmaker and bandmate Milan Schramek, also “featuring dance by Julia Vally and kaleidoscopic time-lapse photography.”
