We are discovering that Hungary is becoming quite the hotspot for instrumental rock. Deley from Budapest is the latest Post-rock band to make its way into our rotation. The foursome has injected a stimulating modern angle to the traditional post rock sound. Sounds of Silence embraces the foundation of Post-rock, yet they have found a way to incorporate touches of electronica without going overboard. The sound is crisp, vibrant and very uplifting, it’s just refreshing to hear bands like Deley taking this genre to other areas and exploring.

What are the highlights of the album?

The last cut “The Holmes-Watson Effect” embraces everything about the band. This track has a natural flow as it balances between modern post-rock, a touch of math rock and even dabs in elements of psychedelics, it’s a very entertaining song to say the least. “Unusual Wiring Of Our Minds” is another outstanding track that weaves through various structures of post and progressive rock. At times we hear elements of modern day Rush scattered throughout the entire album, it doesn’t however feel like a main influence by any means.

How is the production value?

The production is spot on for this style of music. The album has a wonderful vibrant and clean sound thanks to the mixing work of Bence Jobbágy and Péter Laukó, along with mastering technique by Tamás Károly.

What adult beverage to enjoy while listening to this album?
Have a glass or two of Belgiums Leffe Brune Ale. It’s a bitter sweet ale with the taste roasted malts, a bit of caramel and slight fruit. It will awake your senses and compliment this album really well.

Does the album art reflect the music?

The clean, minimalist look is very appropriate for this album.

What are our final thoughts on Sounds of Science.

Deley have a refreshing, lively sound that contrasts many subdued Post-rock bands. We love the direction they are taking their music compared to their first EP Adventures in Psychoacoustics. Pick this one up if you want to add some edge to your instrumental rock collection. - 2/2/2017
