Boomkat Product Review:
Ten Lives is the sophomore release by Melbourne-based indie ensemble Deloris, though apparently this album was assembled without the benefit of an actual band by singer/songwriter Marcus Teague. The Deloris line-up of their first album "Fake Our Deaths" had dissolved leaving Teague to record almost every instrument heard on this album himself. Quite an undertaking by anyone's standards, but when you hear the epic, string-soaked 'Funes' you'll be even more impressed. It's all pulled off with Arcade Fire levels of cinematic indie aplomb. Even more explosive is 'Everything Ever' which opens with swirling delayed guitar arpeggios and twinkling, upper-register piano only to blast into its full, distorted glory for the first chorus. Further examples of Teague's remarkable ability to pen an instant, singalong chorus arrive in the shape of 'All Your Salt' and the Teenage Fanclub-esque 'Where We Already Live'. A different side of Teague's writing is revealed by the atmospheric, maudlin strokes of 'Country Funeral' with its wailing fiddle and downbeat chords. Immediately after this, the album comes to a close with the energy blast of 'Woah Oh', a track which could have come straight from The Shins back-catalogue of punchy, intelligent US indie pop. Excellent stuff.
