    In April, Mellowdrone frontman Jonathan Bates will release a new solo album as Big Black DeltaTrágame Tierra sees collaborators like Kimbra and Debbie Gibson helping to bolster Bates’ muscular take on ’80s synthpop. After premiering lead single “Kid Icarus”, Bates has shared a new track called “Steer the Canyon”.

    It’s a thunderous mountain run of a track, drum machines pounding the path for a boisterous bit of nu wave. Synths seem to explode like land mines as Bates’ vocals barrel over the massive instrumental assault. “Gonna grow old in California,” he sings in one of the more surprisingly tender moments. “Gonna grow old and never see it through/ And we called him/ And we called him with our love.” Take a listen below (via Idolator).
