Deloris touring: 2007

The Ten Lives period. In 2006 and 2007, Ben Gook (Deloris bassist, 2005 onwards) took a lot of photos as we toured. Bits and pieces here and there, but mostly either launching Ten Lives, or while touring with Something For Kate.

Deloris played an intricate and near-flawless set to a packed crowd. Their indie-rock numbers (most from current album Ten Lives, released late last year) won the crowd over and received massive applause. Think of all the things you like about this style of music and Deloris meld it together effortlessly.

Teague showed that a band can be just as impressive, if not more, without the need for a dramatic stage show and proved they didn’t have to rely on tricks to win the crowd over as they opened their set with Everything Ever. Guitarist Anthony Petrucci provided exceptional backing vocals and addition of tambourine and tracks like Unbroke Part of it and Woah Oh left an impression that had the crowd pondering how first-rate this band was. – Fasterlouder

Melbourne five-piece Deloris are a welcome sight after a long break between acts, and enter into what is the start of a powerful set. There are no angular haircuts or skinny jeans here, just brutally honest and impeccably beautiful indie-pop tunes. Front man Marcus Teague is an impressive poet, and his delicate vocals are perfectly complimented by the obviously polished and well-worn band behind him. Triple J favourite The Unbroke Part Of It impresses the now sold-out crowd, but Loup Garou off their Ten Lives LP is the clear highlight, a guitar-driven burrow of finger picked hooks and melody. – Rave
