Delphic to Release Debut Album "Acolyte"

With two shimmering single releases under their belt, Manchester trio Delphic are set to release their debut album Acolyte on Modular Recordings on January 22 in Australia and New Zealand.

Produced with the Berlin-based techno emigre Ewan Pearson, the man behind the boards on recent records by M83, The Rapture and Lost Valentinos, Acolyte was recorded mostly in Pearson's Berlin studio. It's evident the city's flourishing techno scene was bleeding into the crisp grooves inherent in Acolyte, however never to the detriment of the band's emotive songwriting.

On stage, their glorious hard-wired gene pool of anthemic indie and stadium techno comes into its own, driving along like a perfectly pitched DJ set, and where other bands might pause to sip their riders between songs Delphic slip into hypnotic driving techno interludes, turning "gigs" on their heads and opening fans all-seeing rave-eyes to the benefits of the breakdown. If there's any truth to the rumours we should have them down under in early 2010 too. Acolyte's lead single, "Doubt", can be heard/seen on radio and TV from November 23 and you can check out the record's tracklist, below.
