Review: Delphic, ‘Acolyte’

Review: Delphic, ‘Acolyte’: Aidin Vaziri | It doesn’t take long to figure out that Delphic hails from Manchester, England – the musical hotbed that for more than three decades has produced first-class dance-rock acts like New Order, the Stone Roses and Doves. The music on the British trio’s first album, “Acolyte,” accordingly evokes all the euphoria of the indie-rave era but with a thoroughly modern shine. Songs like “This Momentary,” “Doubt” and “Counterpoint” sound like ready-made arena anthems, surging forward on sleek beats and monumental choruses tailor-made to get people in the bleachers jumping: “Just tell me nothing’s wrong!/ Nothing’s wrong!/ Nothing’s wrong!/ Today!” Their hometown should stand proud.
