"Dehilya" from Steve Marino's album "Fluff" is dreamy folk that becomes more

Dehilya from Steve Marino's debut solo album "Fluff" is a piece of dreamy folk with bending guitar lines, an almost slow waltz sway and Marino's open cascading vocal performance. When strings sweep in after the first chorus the song becomes more, more uplifting and more beautiful. 

Steve Marino although just now coming out with his first solo album as himself has (over the last decade) recorded multiple solo albums as Moor Hound and has been in many bands.

'Fluff' is an album about home, and one's place in it, love, and intimacy, and it's the result of Steve marrying his direct, honest songwriting with a deeply collaborative process. He developed the record with fellow Bloomington, Indiana resident, and standout producer Ben Lumsdaine (Kevin Krauter, Major Murphy, Juan Solorzano) and together they open up the songs, giving them tangible depth.
The title track, "Fluff", with its precise drums, layered guitars, and visceral, emotive vocals, captures the power of this collaboration. It's a song that is delicate, yet driving, lyrically opaque, yet emotionally direct. It is, like the rest of the album, in perfect balance.
