Delights are an unsigned four piece from Manchester. With this much promise, not for long:
'Bloom' demonstrates an impressive real focus for a young band. There is clear recognition they have a good riff and have an expanded a melody around it with excitement levels up more often than not.
With some Real Estate-esque guitars in play, Delights garner far more identity than on the opener. The style is laid back like Real Estate but, the high tempo remains and forges interesting new paths.
The vocals are, excuse the pun, a delight. Kevin Rowlands style of fragile soul comes to the fore and reignites a love of underrated 00s bands such as Cajun Dance Party and Polytechnic.
This is pleasant if nothing else. It’s a kind of indie that will bring in the teenage novice but turn away a seasoned record collector. At the start of a bands journey though, this cannot be held against them.
