Delta 7 single ‘The Jungle’ launched 16 Jan

20 January 2017

Delta 7 has just launched its catchy debut single, ‘The Jungle’.

Delta 7 is a seven-piece rock band who met on an Arts Connect music course and who write and perform all their own material. Band members Mikey, Fraser, Elliot, Harry, David, Craig and Speedy have different personalities, talents and disabilities. But their shared love of performing, positive energy and mutual support allows them to create music that is infectious and inspiring, making Delta 7 an uplifting and powerful voice for everyone who feels a little outside ‘the mainstream’ of society.

Last year the band inspired young Brixton filmmaker, Rosie Baldwin, to write a documentary script about them, called ‘We Rise’. The script beat stiff competition to win the Picturehouse Members Film Competition. And, as part of the prize, a two-and-a-half-minute short film was professionally shot and produced by McCann London and Craft London.

Following a positive reception of the film and interest generated in the band including BBC TV news coverage, McCann London has now produced a song recorded with the band during filming. The official track and pop video for the band’s debut single ‘The Jungle’ was released on 16 January to raise money for the band.

‘We Rise’ premiered at Picturehouse Central on 27th September and has been shown before every full-length feature at all Picturehouse cinemas across the country. It tells the uplifting story of how the seven individuals facing diverse problems in their everyday lives have come together to express themselves and challenge stereotypes through music.

The track and music video is available via all major digital music channels. All profits from every sale will go towards the charity in order to support the ambitions of the band to continue making music and perform more widely. So they can inspire others and speak for everyone in society who understands what it is to feel ‘different’.

The band is very close to my heart.

Delta 7 is very important to us. We have a great time together, we look out for each other, we understand each other. It is great to be part of the band.

It’s amazing what a difference being in the band has made. Craig has become so confident and full of himself! It’s incredible, I can’t believe it.

Delta 7 create a brilliantly atmospheric sound that reminds me of post-punk band, The Fall. Their message reminds us all of the value of music as a tool of empowerment. We’re humbled and honoured to be able to help the band and the charity grow further with the release of ‘The Jungle’.

Delta 7 will also be performing at ‘Every Sort of People’, an accessible community festival to be held at the Lewes Football Club ground on 13th May 2017. Culture Shift and Lewes Football Club are proud to be working together to produce this new event for 2017. The event will be launched on Thursday January 26th 2017 at Pelham House Hotel, Lewes.
