“brookes was here2a” By Big Black Delta

eOne Music has set a June 2nd release date for Big Black Delta’s third LP album, WHORU812. The album is a study in sonic environment without the distraction or weight of melody. Written and recorded over a 4 day period, WHORU812 comes in two modes: REPOSE and OPERATOR. REPOSE was built with self-reflection and stillness in mind. It is best to listen to in darkness or atnight. OPERATOR was built for instability and inertia. It is designed to be listened to with bright lights. When asked where the album title came from, Jonathan answered, “I love Van Halen.” WHORU812 has already been making an impact, the track “RIPinPeace” was featured in the trailer for the first season of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things.

“brookes was here2a” started as chord progression that my father and I used to play together while drinking whiskey when he was alive. I wanted a nice, gentle piece of music to remind me of that. He was a great musician,” states Jonathan.In support of this ambient, instrumental record, Jonathan will be performing WHORU812 in its entirety on July 14th at The Viaduct in the Los Angeles State Historic Park. Fans can look forward to an evening of ambient compositions and a fully immersive audio/visual experience that will fully transform the historic Broadway Street bridge under the Los Angeles night sky. This will be Big Black Delta’s only live show in 2017.
