We first heard this band about two years ago when our good friend Eddy Temple-Morris played a demo version of their upcoming single, ‘Counterpoint’, on The Remix on Xfm. Now Delphic are fast becoming Manchester’s hottest new property. Their sound is steeped in their home city’s musical history but they’re taking it forwards like no one has managed for quite some time. The single is released through R&S Records on 14 Apr, but the band have recently signed a deal to run their own label, called Chemeric, as a subsidiary of Polydor. They’re signed up to every major social network going and links to all of them are handily provided on their MySpace profile, so you don’t have to stay there too long if you don’t want to.
