WHAT BROUGHT ME TO THIS

Until I saw them mentioned on a Swedish webzine I'd never heard of Delica but I'm glad I have now as this, their third album is an excellent example of powerful electronic rock/pop, making this Canadian quartet an undiscovered gem. While Herman Wang's vocals are very tuneful in a way that would fit in well with any MOR pop band the music certainly doesn't follow suit, as proven by the opening "Snowing In Here" where Jennifer Parkin's (of Epsilon Minus) vocals enhance the track's slightly ethereal feel and even more so during the superb "Glacier". I'm sure I detected one or two Numan touches here and there in the spikey backing (which is never a bad thing) and this is little short of brilliant, a track that deserves to be heard far and wide. Although some of the basslines do betray some 80s touches (the solidly rhythmic "Starfish" being just one example) in no way does this prevent the music from being totally modern in feel with a mix of power and commerciality that very few bands get right (The Echoing Green being one exception). Delica, however, get the balance spot on time and again with the EBM touches of "Abandon Comes Slowly" and the industrially-tinged "Slant" perfectly bridging the gap between the accessable and the powerful. The slower "Still There", the relaxed "Turn Her" and the tender "Power Drain" are all no less effective in their own way, further proving the band's worth. The highlights come thick and fast throughout the album and it's obvious that this is a band that deserve to be massive so get your copy today and help them become so, it's the only sensible course to take!!
