Rising stars Delphic have described their national live TV debut as a "pretty mad experience".

The synth-indie band appeared on Later Live... with Jools Holland on Tuesday 10 November.

Also playing the show were American rockers Alice In Chains and soul singing sensation Joss Stone.

As impressed as Delphic were by the line-up, keyboard player Rick Boardman did admit they were a "bit gutted we weren't on the week before with Jay-Z."

He said that the band had been surprised by how much they enjoyed the show, saying that they went "down there the day before to rehearse and the atmosphere was pretty relaxing."

That said, he did admit that as well as Doubt, the live track they played, went, when they came to recording for Friday night's Later… with Jools Holland (on which they also appear), things didn't go quite as smoothly.

"For the second tune, Halcyon, I was rushing to get my monitor pack, which I had left at the back of the room, as our song was starting.

"It was pretty frightening stuff!"

Delphic's appearance on the shows is another step up for the hotly-tipped band, who release their debut album, Acolyte, on Monday 11 January 2010.

That release is preceded by their single, Doubt, which is out a week before.

Delphic's appearance on Later Live… with Jools Holland is available on the BBC iPlayer until Monday 16 November.

Later… with Jools Holland is on BBC Two on Friday 13 November at 11.35pm and is available on the BBC iPlayer for a week after.
