The Deslondes are a five-piece band from New Orleans. In the time between the release of their self-titled debut and new sophomore album, ‘Hurry Home’, The Deslondes have toured the world and drawn critical acclaim for their studied and inventive take on New Orleans country and R&B.

‘Hurry Home’ represents a sonic shift from the country folk of their debut to a sometimes psychedelic, electrified gospel soul sound, with a stronger emphasis on organ and electric guitar. The band split up songwriting and lead vocal duties among its five members, continuing its democratic ethos and musical versatility.

The sound may continue to draw comparisons to the country funkiness of The Band but The Deslondes were equally inspired by the sound of early Sun Records, the punchy rock & roll of ‘VU’-era Velvet Underground and the experimental pop of Joe Meek.

Perhaps most importantly, ‘Hurry Home’ is the sound of a band that understand the history of American music but are deftly finding their own contemporary approach.
