Local 913, Episode 64: Lofi Delphi
Back with their second EP, Lofi Delphi has been working on establishing their unique sound. Pianist and vocalist Becki Gallagher talked about the changes the group instilled this time around:
“I was going through a lot of personal stress at the time. A lot of the songs kind of touch on more somber notes than the first album. [There’s] a lot of kind of loss and thoughtfulness that wasn’t there the first time because we were just trying to get stuff on paper. This time we thought about it more and had time to kind of hone the songs and make them sound how we wanted them to instead of what they needed to sound like in the moment.”
Gallagher, who started playing piano at 8, grew up in a religious household where piano was really the only option for an instrument. Inspired by her dad who played drums and recorded his own album, Becki started writing songs and found friends who also played music. Gallagher and her husband bassist Andrew Belsick, left Pittsburgh from 2010, but returned in 2013 to an extremely supportive Pittsburgh music community. Asked if her life-long passion for WWE ever influences her music...
“I think just the silliness of it all! We don’t take ourselves very seriously (I don’t!). Just not being super serious about things and having fun with what you’re doing. That’s a wrestling thing and that translates into my personality.”
