10 for 2010: #1 – Delphic

Delphic (side)A couple of weeks back, we asked you to vote for your top 10 artists for 2010. We had almost 600 votes, and we’ve reached the grand finale, the big one. After 600 votes cast by you guys, the band the majority of you are interested about in 2010 is: Delphic.

The fourth band from Manchester on our list (joining The Northwestern, Dutch Uncles and Egyptian Hip Hop), Delphic have slowly been climbing into everyone’s consciousness throughout 2009. Their sound encompasses that traditionally Northern new wave sound, but add to that a dash of dance, a splash of rave and a hint of sci-fi prog, and perhaps you’re halfway there with Delphic. Jess introduced them properly last month.

They’ve become a darling of the BBC since been nominated in the BBC’s Sound of 2010 longlist and are one of the favourites to be crowned the winners. Fast, frantic and accessible when we caught them at Southampton’s Joiners back in October their show was full of more energy than most bands have ever had in the rest of their careers and more strobes than most stadium gigs can muster.

Get a listen to their first single, “Counterpoint”, a remix of their second single and watch the video for their forthcoming third single, Doubt, below.
