Long Distances Shares New Single ‘Delicate Surrender’ From Upcoming EP

Indian indie-rock act Long Distances serves up a tantalizing appetizer of things to come on their debut EP ‘How the Mighty Will Fall’ with the new release, ‘Delicate Surrender.’

Long Distances, comprised of indie music stalwarts Aarifah Rebello, Apurv Agrawal, and Zubin Pastakia, follow up their debut single ‘Empire‘ and the widely appreciated ‘Lovesong for an Apocalypse‘ with their third release, ‘Delicate Surrender.’ The newest single winches in bass vibrations from George Joseph and drum action from Jai Row Kavi. The artwork and captivating visual teaser were conceived by visual artist Chinmay Patkar, who also serves as the vocalist-guitarist of the Mumbai-based band Corner Café Chronicles.

With ‘Delicate Surrender,’ the trio hauls in inspiration from new wave, goth, and post-punk music. Aarifah’s diligent vocals capture the track, which is laid out with optimum use of synths and guitar elements. Listeners are tossed into four minutes of a dance-inducing, catchy dream-pop, shoegaze, and rock offering. The band described that the song “is perhaps one of the most introspective songs, but is quite danceable… so let’s all happy-cry to the endless cycle of life’s promises and disappointments.”

Long Distances initially banded together during the pandemic via online Zoom sessions. May 2023 saw the crew storm the stage at Antisocial in Mumbai, performing their original music and also a smashing cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams.’ The band is slated to release their debut EP ‘How the Mighty Will Fall’ in November 2023.
