As a noun, “blip” can mean one of two things – “an unexpected, minor, and typically temporary deviation from a general trend” and “a short high-pitched sound made by an electronic device.” With that in mind, Delta Blip take on both meanings with single “Tactician.”

The track’s industrial groove, backed by distorted low end and disintegrating static, digs the perfect hole for breathy mantra “it’s sound down here in the valley amongst you,” which acts like a liberating force, a break from quotidian daily routine. Further along, dry, weathered synths hang suspended in the airy guitars that linger past into the bridge’s breakdown. Turn on, tune in, drop out.

Delta Blip’s self-titled EP releases December 22.
