Ok, if you're in Stockholm tonight you're in a hurry: Manchester trio Delphic is playing at Debaser Medis tonight with free admittance before 22!
The band consists of James Cook (vocals and bass), Matt Cocksedge (guitar) and Richard Boardman (synths) with support from Dan Hadley on drums. Their critically acclaimed debut album "Acolyte" was released January 11 and should make them light up like fireworks during 2010. They describe their music as mixing euphoric electronica with anthemic songs for a post-dance world, and if I would compare them with someone it would be with another British band I really like; Friendly Fires.
They will releasing a US-only EP digitally on March 2 followed by a limited vinyl 12" release a couple of weeks later. They'll also be doing a set on this year's Coachella festival, so stay tuned!
If you think putting up this post to promote a gig just hours before it starts is a bit late you're probably right. On the other hand, had we put it up any sooner we wouldn't have been able to post the Build remix of "Doubt" that's literally hours old. It's really great to hear from a guy that we all listened to a lot during last year. Also enjoy the other remixes by What Kind Of Breeze Do You Blow?, The Chain and Doc Daneeka as well as Delphic's own remix of Phoenix.

Don't forget to show Delphic some MySpace love! And if you are in Milano on the 11th of February you can see them there and also enjoy Sir Lancelot's DJ gig afterwards.
