DELIGHTS - Bloom
Adam Maxwell, Ben Squires, Ben Kirkland and Leo Willis are DELIGHTS, one of the newest additions to Manchester’s thriving music scene. Fans of bands like Blossoms and Blur, it’s not surprising that the four piece have that oh so familiar indie rock sound (definitely not a bad thing).
Bloom is the debut single from the band’s upcoming demo EP and it's certainly a strong starting point from such a new band. A mix of jangly pop and indie rock guitar gives DELIGHTS an energetic yet familiar sound, with beautifully Northern vocals increasing the rock-ish sound and distracting from the pop elements.
The four piece have a slight Catfish feel, in the way that their energy captures your attention and no doubt would cause chaos amongst a live crowd. I’d hardly be surprised to see DELIGHTS selling out shows in the near future.
