Delorentos make a welcome return with the first track off their forthcoming Little Sparks EP, ‘Did We Ever Really Try?’ sticks to a similar Delorentos formula, which isn’t a bad thing because they know their way around an infectious chorus. And if you like to look at the band you’ll enjoy the close-up nature of the video. It was directed by Gareth Averill and Mark Duggan. The Little Sparks EP, which comes with an accompanied 40-page magazine, is out November 18 with the band’s third album set to follow in early 2012. Delorentos are also embarking on a trio of acoustic gigs next month:

John Daly’s, Mullingar on Wednesday, November 23.
Triskel Arts Centre, Cork, Thursday, November 24.
Unitarian Church, Dublin, Friday, November 25.
