Scotland’s indie-pop powerhouse quartet, The Delgados, have returned with their fifth full length. Named after Pedro Delgado, a famous Scottish cyclist, the band, consisting of Alun Woodward (vocals/guitar), Emma Pollock (vocals/guitar), Stewart Henderson (vocals/bass) and Paul Savage (drums), have created an album based, constructed and sweetened with harmonies. Like any solid pop record and especially the recent wave of indie-pop, most of the concentration is put on the lead vocal melody (whether it is male, female or a combination of the two); three and four part vocal harmonies are present in the background of almost every song, along with the support of damn catchy indie guitar hooks and bouncy bass lines. This will definitely appeal to fans of other Scottish indie-pop notables like Belle & Sebastian and and to an extent Mogwai (who is part of the Chemikal Underground roster, owned and run by The Delgados), along with similar acts like The Shins, etc. Universal Audio will be another underground success for The Delgados, packaged with usual NME and other British press praise.
