Watch: Delphic – “Baiya”

19 Dec


The Delphic boys are well and truly back. Following a successful UK tour in the autumn where they showcased some new material, and the news that their long-awaited second album was on the way, they recently debuted the video for lead single, “Baiya”.

The track is a great blend of orchestral strings, pop hooks and hip-hop style beats. The electro side has been played down but it is still there to a degree but the pop aspect has been turned right up. It is certainly properly radio friendly and sounded fantastic when we saw them play live a few weeks back. The reaction has not been universally positive mind you. The guys have had something of a mixed response to their new stuff, with a roughly 50/50 split of people decrying its departure from what they loved about Acolyte or embracing and rejoicing the new direction. Here at Alphabet Bands, our tastes being as eclectic as they are, we love it. It doesn’t stop us from thinking Acoloyte was amazing and our minor obsession with that album doesn’t prevent us from appreciating their new stuff either.

The video, which was filmed in Paris, looks stunning and with the guys all suited and booted and fighting one another in a stop-motion style, it’s like Morph-meets-The Matrix. Which frankly, would be amazing.

Collections is released on 28 January and can be pre-ordered here.
