Delphic: Recording album was tough

Delphic went to record their new album in the US - but it wasn't always a smooth ride.

The Manchester trio, who emerged towards the end of 2009, flew to Atlanta to work with producer Ben Allen for the follow-up to their acclaimed debut.

"It was enjoyable for five or 10% of the time," says guitarist Matt Cocksedge, of recording Collections.

"And for that small amount of time you feel absolutely ecstatic. The rest of the time is hard work and arguments.

"What's difficult is so much can be lost in translation and you can end up with something so different from your original vision."

The guitar band wanted to take a change in direction with the album.

"Pop music went dance, and suddenly that sound was everywhere," said band leader Rick Boardman. "Rihanna started making dance music, David Guetta and Calvin Harris happened, so we thought we couldn't do anything like that anymore."

::Delphic's second album Collections is out now. Their UK tour continues on February 14 in Liverpool

If your affection keeps growing, then you can pursue a more serious commitment. Until then, keep things light.More
