Gothic Tropic
Freshman album ‘Fast or Feast’ explores themes of empowerment, where strength is found in the times of vulnerability. Rising from the ashes of old relationships and the difficulties of growing up, Gothic Tropic's new record skillfully and wittily riffs on such universal experiences. Teaching herself to play guitar watching Television live videos on You Tube and listening to Fleetwood Mac on the home stereo, Gothic Tropic aka Cecilia Della Peruti poured these twin loves with psychedelia and 80s poolside pop into ‘Fast or Feast’s hooky ten tracks.


For Della Peruti, the title of her new album came from a place of paradoxical brutality. “I felt it personified the extreme conditions of the writing and recording process, as well as where I'm at in my life. The chances of becoming homeless or renting a jet are somehow equal”, she muses. From one extreme to another ‘Fast or Feast’ captures the spirit of Della Peruti’s artistry that triumphantly mixes shimmering pop with psych and classic rock. Recorded in LA with Devendra Banhart, Feist and Electric Guest affiliate Todd Dahlhoff, ‘Fast or Feast’ was the result of a one year period of writing on the road. Accordingly, the patchworked process influenced Della Peruti's “sense of freedom to create a wide variety of music, while all belonging to the same family”.


From the roaring opening single ‘Stronger’ to the atmospheric anthem of the closing track ‘Feed You To The Sharks’, ‘Fast or Feast’ is an essential, thundering medley of Della Peruti’s shredding guitars and “shiny pop concision”, the Guardian raved about.

Los Angeles native Cecilia Della Peruti introduces some hard edges to the playful world of pop. She keeps the vibe punchy with a unique lead guitar style inspired by 70s heroes and nods to an era of female rock nobility that begs to be seen and heard. After working in the studio with Ryan Adams, and earning endorsements from indie-rock heroes James Mercer and Karen O, Della Peruti cut her teeth as a multi-instrumentalist touring player for Beck, Børns, Charli XCX, and more. Della Peruti has won sponsorships with leading gear manufacturers, and is currently featured as one of the guitarists in Fender's American Professional Series campaign, alongside legends like Charlie Bereal and Duff Mckagan.


Gothic Tropic's new music has been attracting international media appeal from Beats 1's Zane Lowe, KROQ's Kat Corbett, to Australia's Triple J, as well as having been added to many major front page Spotify and Apple Music playlists. After having supported Kate Nash on her recent UK tour, as well as packing out her first UK and EU headline tour and festival circuit, Gothic Tropic is bound for "slick, full arenas." (DIY Magazine).
