A rather strange bunch, Delicate Steve is a New Jersey five-piece that creates frantic noise-pop with enough electro hooks to be palatable and enough polyrhythms to be avant-garde. According to the band's press release, the five young men all had the potential to be highly successful members of society--made up of a star athlete, a polymath with the ability to play over 40 instruments, a former teen pop star, etc.--but gave up everything to sit around in lawn chairs in a New Jersey strip mall parking lot and discuss philosophy long enough to be discovered by David Byrne's record label, Luaka Bop, one morning. Since this lucky day, the band has released an album and slowly built a following that is enamored by the eccentric theories of Delicate Steve that shine through in its music.
