The Delines: Imperial
Rob Hughes, Uncut, 11 January 2019
It's been a long way back for Amy Boone. In March 2016, the singer was hit by a car as she walked through a parking lot in Austin, Texas, causing horrific breaks to her legs. It's taken her the best part of three painful years, during which time she's been through nine surgeries and various skin grafts, to be able to reclaim her place at the head of The Delines, the band she formed with Richmond Fontaine's Willy Vlautin in 2012. What kept her going, apparently, was the knowledge that Vlautin had already written the bulk of what became The Imperial.
