Roadrunner by Deliriously Serious: Review
The new album “Roadrunner” by the New Mexico duo Deliriously Serious fuses Americana with brass sounds. The single has a broad variety of musical styles and melodies, all of which blend together in an effortless manner to create a rich mix, which is delightful to listen to.
The song “Roadrunner” begins with one member of the duo singing gently until being joined by the other, whose singing is more forceful and rough around the edges. Amidst Christopher Smith-Escarcega’s vocals, during this time, you will be transported to the cactus-studded horizon of New Mexico by an upbeat mix of brass and percussion instruments. With Ian Dolly on slide guitar and Ben Rose from the UK on bass, Deliriously Serious lands a fantastic collaboration with their trusty mates. The lyrics of the duo recount a time-honored story of betrayal, gunplay, and retribution, a story that evokes mental pictures of the old west with all of its murky histories. It’s like walking into a Texan bar, getting to know stories of those in the past over beer.
In spite of the fact that Roadrunner’s theme—a nod to Americana and folk music—has been covered numerous times before in all types of songs, Deliriously Serious still gives it its own rendition with a pool of fresh energy.
