Music Message | “Traffic” by Del Pelson

Del Pelson dive deep with a catchy yet immersive single “Traffic”

FL indie-pop band deliver another infectious single, with an underlying important message

Traffic by Del Pelson Boca Raton, FL  – Hot on the heels of their last two singles, Florida’s indie-pop band Del Pelson share another stunning and immersive track titled “Traffic” today. Gorgeously rich, dreamy guitar melodies, and layered harmonics introduce the track, cresting into an upbeat and groovy single, perfect for the coming summer months. A bright, care-free melody gives way to sobering lyrics that introduce the difficult subject of addiction.

As with their previous tracks, a closer listen to the lyrics gives way to a serious message. “Traffic empathetically looks at how substances can be appealing at first, but a delirious realization reveals how abuse and addiction can derail a life. To put it simply, Traffic is about alcoholism,” shared vocalist Cal Nelson. “There was a point in college when I realized I was drinking more often than what would be sustainable lifestyle, but that short time in my life gave me a glimpse into how somebody might fall into a cycle of addiction.”

The lyrics reveal the dark spiral of addiction, with various examples of a life slowly becoming unraveled. “Cause I’ve been walking out in to traffic, and eating breakfast for dinner when it’s lunchtime / Picking up the bottle from the floor, you know.” Layers of lucid guitar, cerebral synthesizers and persuasive percussion blend for a dreamy yet hook-laden melody.

As Substream Magazine, who premiered the single, said, “An upbeat or a catchy song can help give new perspective on an issue or introduce it to an entirely new crowd,” creating awareness, conversation, and most importantly, potential change for listeners to recognize and address unhealthy habits. The outlet noted how the track “does an amazing job of providing a downright charming sound to background the difficult truths” that are revealed.

“Traffic”, as well as previous singles “Heather Lou” and “Oak” are out everywhere today including SpotifyBandcamp, and Apple Music. With a series of infectious summer anthems, their music comes not only to entertain, but also to share important reflections of the world. Del Pelson has a number of upcoming shows across southern Florida, with more to be announced over the summer.

Indie pop band, Del Pelson

About Del Pelson
A little bit pop, a little bit indie/alternative rock, Del Pelson’s catchy style can’t be pigeon-holed. The band’s sound is somehow both laid back and energetic, thanks to the diverse personalities and styles of its four members. Front man Cal Nelson is a rare songwriting talent with innate creativity and a unique way of seeing and hearing the world; Garrett Kealer’s drumming ranges with incredible subtleness to virtuosic grooves; Nathaniel Spiner brings melodic yet driving bass lines to the frontline, and Patrick Montanari acts as the band’s secret weapon with impressive saxophone skills, foundational keyboard layers, ands lick guitar leads. Together, Del Pelson breaks age and gender barriers with its catchy indie-pop melodies and powerful alternative rockbeats, exploring love, life, and irony with musical undercurrents of jazz, blues, roots, folk, reggae, and surf. With two EP’s under their belt, Del Pelson is gearing up for the release of a series of new single in early 2019.

The band is well known for their live chemistry and their obvious enjoyment is infectious. Del Pelson performed in the 2016 UndertowJam, featuring Young the Giant and Bear Hands. They have since opened for other national acts including Kurt Travis, Brent Walsh, and more. Formed in 2015, Del Pelson has since been featured in 104.3 The Shark’s Open Swim Podcast Series with Erin Lee, Miami New Times, PureHoney Magazine, Soundbite Magazine,York Calling, Mystic Sons, and more.

It is about surrendering to love in all its beauty -allowing the other person to live their life alongside yours, giving them the freedom to be themselves and loving them for it. It is the realization that you need to be with the one you love and you will sacrifice anything to be with them. If we can just give in and be true – regardless of time and distance we will always find our way back to our true love.
