Playing to a sold out crowd at the Button Factory last night, the Delorentos performed an exciting and energetic gig showcasing their new album packed full of good tunes. Formed in 2005, Little Sparks is their third album and as they say third time lucky, with ‘Little Sparks’ they are clearly onto a winner and about time too! They spent 18 months on this album and it shows. They were clearly excited about being back on stage again. Unfortunately the only thing that took away from my enjoyment of the gig was the chatty cathy’s that stood directly behind us and decided it was the perfect time to catch up! But aside from that, last night’s gig was pretty close to perfection. They opened with ‘Little Sparks’ and the crowd clearly loved the upbeat tunes, ‘Did We Ever Really Try?’, ‘Right to Know’ and ‘Give it up now’ and sung along to the chorus. During the encore they treated us to a few of their older, more popular songs like ‘S.E.C.R.E.T’, ‘Eustace Street’, ‘STOP’ and ‘You’ll Say That You’ll Never Love Her’ which really got the crowd going. There was also a beautiful version of ‘Bullet in a Gun’. I think they won a few more fans last night with that performance as well as keeping their original fans more than happy. I really wish the Delorentos get all the success they deserve with this excellent album. At the moment, I think they may well be the best Irish band around. Last night they kicked off their tour in Dublin and have dates around Ireland in March. First Ireland and then here’s to world domination boys!
