Interview & "Eloise" Premier with The Young Folks

Violet Delancey first appeared on the scene in 2016 as a country/folk artist with her well-received debut, When the Clock Strikes Midnight. Her latest album, Columbia Road, available May 25, is a huge stylistic departure that sees Delancey rebranding herself as an “Americana-tinged dream pop singer-songwriter.” Produced by Andy LeMaster (R.E.M., Bright Eyes, Azure Ray) in Athens, Ga., Columbia Road has Delancey drawing inspiration from Kate Bush and Emmylou Harris. Those influences are apparent, especially in Delancey’s new single, “Eloise,” which feels in a lot of ways like it’s straight out of a ‘80s Kate Bush fever dream. Delancey’s vocals fit nicely in with this genre change; the lyrics meander along backed by soft percussion and guitar, lulling the listener into the hazy, ethereal world her and LeMaster have created. It’s clear that Delancey is on a musical journey, and she brings the listener along nicely.
