Deleo is the new indie-rock duo of the Montpellier scene. Has a multi-instrumentalist songwriter, Later, and a young talented singer, currently a student at the Sete Conservatory, Eleonore. From the meeting of these two passionate Anglo-Saxon musicians was born the evidence of an artistic fusion. Evidence confirmed listening to their first titles and their passages noticed on stage. These two are made to get along, and we, to listen to them. Eleanor’s aerial voice vibrates with sensuality on Del’s delicate guitars. He has kept his adolescent passions for the pillars of the new wave that are The Cure, U2 or Depeche Mode, the taste of dark melodies spiced with impulses pop rock formidable effective.

Over the years, his compositions have been enriched with eclectic and electric influences PJ Harvey, Archive, Mogwai, Placebo, Foals, Starsailor and many others.

But it is especially in the music of Radiohead that Deleo draws his inventiveness. Thom Yorke’s pieces are not only their source of inspiration. They are their breathing. A way of life, to play with the sounds of the purest and most fragile emotions. The most agile too.

It is therefore with generosity that this melancholic duo offers us today panoramic creative sounds of imaginary landscapes as vast as subtle. All performed in Deleo’s personal laboratory, a demanding and prolific group.

After their first single Game Lover to listen on the platforms, an EP of five titles chiseled and resolutely radiophonic will see the day soon.

One of the most promising musical discoveries of the moment.

DELEO is very excited that their music is being played on 752.2 Radio.

The Band was formed by the end of 2016. The band’s name was invented by Bernie in 1999 when writing ”Soarin’ High” and he was a little bit shocked by his own lyrics that didn’t come out that conform at those times then. ”Soarin’ High” was aired as The Cute Urchins’ debut single on 26th Dec. 2016.

Band members areĀ  Sonja Roxanne Mundt background and harmony vocals, lead vocal, piano Tom Herwig piano, guitar, Background vocals, producer for the band Kosta Panis lead guitar (Fender, Gibson Les Paul) , bouzouki Rolf Gerritzen Bassguitar, guitars, backing vocals
Bernie Klapdor lead vocal, guitar (Fender), rhythm guitars

A drummer as solid component of the band is in advance. Until then the band is supported by helping hands. Some members of the band know each other for decades.

As natives mostly of the lower Rhine area there’s a natural love of music and the influencing music styles differ from member to member. Sonja Roxanne is trending towards Metal, Tom just loves good music like

Classical Masters as well as Rock, Country (Pistol Annies). Kosta is hooked on Carlos Santana as well as Journey or Led Zeppelin. Rolfs is at core with Toto, Bernie’s main influence as songwriter for The Cute Urchins are The Eagles.

Tom and Bernie were playing together in a live band by the early – mid 90’ies when covering The Eagles, Poco, America, Jackson Browne and The Bo Deans. Kosta and Bernie know each other since early childhood. Sonja Roxanne lives in Bernie’s neighborhood for ten years, suddenly he finds out she performs as a main singer in a gospel choir. Rolf was brought in by Kosta. Furthermore there are three drummers who are interested to join the band now.

In late April the debut album titled ”Soarin’ High” will be put to public. Live acts are planned for midsummer time. As far as known the band had been aired several times on Riviera.FM at Torquay in UK. Their singles ”Soarin’ High” and ”Lovin’ Is Like” had been played by more than 100 radio stations on the internet as well as on .FM – stations around the world.

There are no nominations for any award or a featuring at any broadcasting service or TV. Ever since Cute Urchins had begun their way producing had been done by Tom who had studied sound engineering and even was a teacher in that genre. All songs so far were and are written by Bernie.

When it comes to describe the band’s music style Bernie loves to talk about Long-Haired-Country.

Perhaps listeners find out an own band’s style for there are so many different influences brought in by each member.

The Cure Urchins are very excited that their music is being played on 752.2 Radio.
