Following the release of their vibrant new single ‘Heart’, synth outfit Delamere will be taking their technicolour sound on the road this autumn with a live show set for Leeds Oporto on Wednesday, October 21.

With the festival season now all wrapped up, ‘Heart’ is set to provide one last dose of shimmering summer sun ahead of their upcoming UK tour dates.

Though they formed in the Midlands, Stoke’s Delamere are a band met with open arms anywhere they go. Adopted by Manchester, welcomed by Sheffield and recently, even that there London has got in on the act.

Having spent a summer playing various festivals across the UK, most notable of which saw them play every date of Dot to Dot, the band are now looking ahead to the inevitable first album. Before that, however, still riding high on the praise that was heaped on their Bright Young Things EP earlier this year, Delamere have re-recorded one of their earliest releases in order to whet appetites just a little more.

More polished than its original iteration, ‘Heart’ sees the return of the band’s emphatic percussion, bringing with it swathes of optimistic synths, rumbling bass and singer James Fitchford’s fraught vocal delivery.

With the likes of Artrocker, Louder Than War and Backseat Mafia all championing the band for bigger things, it’s the perfect track to see where Delamere have been, and more importantly, to see exactly where they are today.

They are also playing live in Yorkshire at The rocking Chair, in Sheffield, on Friday, October 23.
