On October 1, 2010, Manchester’s Delphic played to a sold out crowd at New York’s Terminal 5.  I saw them earlier this year, not having heard any of their music and by the end of that show, I was a fan.  Their album “Acolyte” was not yet released in the United States when I saw them initially, and since that night, I’ve listened to the album so many times, there’s no doubt that it is securing a spot in my best albums of 2010 list.  It was so great to see the band live after becoming familiar with their music because they are killer live!  I am still battling my case of laryngitis, but I did my best to sing along  to every track.  Apologies to the people standing near me if I sounded like a dying cat.  Their 8 song set was played as a continuous mix and it was an hour long dance party that everyone in Terminal 5 was enjoying.  It’s hard to pick a favorite song, but looking at my I-pod counter, I’ve heard “Red Lights” the most and I thought I was going to lose control when the song came on because I love it so much.  Luckily, for the sake of you, my dear readers, I held it together and took a video which you’ll see very soon.  Please be patient.  I am one person with lots of adventures to write about.

If you’ve never heard Delphic’s music before, please visit their official website (link is above) where you can download 1 unreleased track (Sanctuary), 1 extended version (This Momentary) and 2 remixes they’ve done for other artists (Phoenix, Everything Everything).  I highly recommend it!  As you’ve already read, I met lead singer James Cook after the set and he was a delightful person!  This was a night for the books.  I am really looking forward to Delphic becoming worldwide superstars and if their set from tonight is any prediction of future success, I think they have nothing to worry about.

Delphic’s setlist was: Clarion Call / Doubt / Red Lights / Instrumental / This Momentary / Halcyon / Counterpoint / Acolyte
