Following on from the success of his latest single “It’s Cold Where I’m From”, Melbourne based singer/producer Rich Delinquent has returned with the epic fourth single from his debut EP of the same title DM If You Need To, released on the13th of March. Rich Delinquent explain “the EP as whole stems from personal experiences, touching on battles with life’s hardships. Ultimately “DM If You Need To” is a songwriting form of catharsis to keep the demons at bay.”
Influenced by the likes of The Weeknd, Bring Me the Horizon, and Odesza, the EP is entirely self-produced by Rich Delinquent in his Melbourne home studio, with the tracks deriving from a very clear vision of blending different genres of music to create something fresh with his voice being the anchor of the entire project. Rich Delinquent explain “writing this EP was a blur. Some was done on the road whilst touring a different project, some was done abroad and some was done in my home studio. The whole project came from a very dark place that I don’t wish to share publicly yet.”
A self proclaimed “absolute perfectionist”, the writing and recording process for Rich Delinquent’s debut EP was extremely tedious – “I’ll do hundreds of takes of a song until it is perfect and need minimal tuning if any.” Fans are set to benefit from this perfectionist attitude, with the five track EP providing a captivating insight into the artist’s personality, passion for music, and life in general.
