Delphic have spoken about the making of their second album and have proclaimed that they are "trying to make something truly great".

The Manchester trio have been working on the follow-up to their 2010 debut album 'Acolyte' for the last 18 months and have been working Bombay Bicycle Club producer Ben Allen and DFA Records co-founder Tim Goldsworthy.

When asked about why their second album had taken so long to put together, band leader Rick Boardman told NME:

We're trying to make something truly great. We're not interested in the rock n'roll lifestyle. We didn't want to release something that we would mean we could just go back on tour and have fun. We just want to make a really great record.



Speaking about where recording and writing sessions had taken place, Boardman said: "We've done the majority of it in our own studio in Manchester and then we spent eight months in this barn in the middle of nowhere. We set up a studio there by ourselves and just worked on material."

He continued: "After that, we just wanted some outside creativity, so we've been down in Bristol working with a guy called Tim Goldsworthy. He's a bit like us in that he's been part of DFA and this whole indie dance thing and he's sick of it and wants to do something new. He shares our love of contemporary R&B and Aaliyah and stuff like that, so it's worked out perfectly. We've got 12 or 13 in the mix, but we need to whittle it down a bit. We'll start doing that soon."

Delphic are set to return to live action later this year with a series of low-key dates.
