Delphic - Acolyte

Rating: 7

Proof that musical history moves in cycles, were they born three decades earlier Delphic would’ve fitted in spookily well at Factory, their native Manchester’s most celebrated indie label. True, the trio’s post-new rave electronics-meet-guitars dexterity is something of a Buzz Aldrin to Bloc Party’s Neil Armstrong in places on this debut album. There’s enough originality to warrant a second look, though, evoking the epic soul of the infamous The Haçienda club with percussive clatter overseen by techno producer Ewan Pearson. It marks Delphic out as, if you will, the new New Order, but ‘Acolyte’ is no worse for that.
