One Question Interviews: Delmar & the Dedications

Del (Delmar & the Dedications)

SPB: What musician do you think had the greatest influence on Delmar’s sound today?  

Del: I've always been a huge fan of ‘60s girl-group pop bands, and at first, Delmar started as a cover band doing garage punk renditions of b-sides from The Chiffons, The Supremes, Lesley Gore, etc. I eventually realized that all of these songs follow a simple formula and was like, "Shit. I can write this." From there we started performing originals. We continue to write based on the ‘60s girl-group formula, but the sound has morphed into the more power-pop sensibilities of Marshall Crenshaw, Elvis Costello, and Matthew Sweet.
