Patrick Roberts signs to Blow Up SongsPublished on 21st August 2023
We are pleased to announce that Patrick Roberts has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Blow Up Songs for the majority of his songs as a member of The Sea Urchins and Delta. This follows closely behind the recent announcement that Patrick’s brother James had signed to Blow Up Songs.
The titles include The Sea Urchins ‘Time Is All I’ve seen’, from the band that launched Sarah Records with the single Pristine Christine. To songs with with Delta, the band that formed in the nineties after the demise of The Sea Urchins, include the songs Beautiful, Elephant Man, Slippin’ Out amongst others, along with co-written songs with James such as Nothing Happened and TV On.
The Guardian described Delta as “Byrdsy harmonies and Pacific Coast flourishes with a very British despondency”. Delta were signed by Mercury Records but the album Hard Light didn’t see the light until it was finally released by indie label Dell’oroso Records.
Delta played several times over the years at the Blow Up club, including the third birthday event in Mayfair (1996). The Blow Up team have been long time fans of the band, a band that looked at one point set for a big breakthrough success. We are very pleased to be working with Patrick along with James and their brilliant collection of songs.
