Delphis by The Impossibles a great example of the Madchester sound

I ordinarily don't dip into the 90's but I'm going to make an exception with this post.  In 1991 I was just crazy about this song.  Though I'd have to say it is quite obscure.
The Impossibles (Mags Grundy and Lucy Dallas) are a female duo from Edinburgh who put out three singles between 1990 and 1991.  Delphis is the second one.  It's very much part of the Manchester Ambient sound that was huge in the early 90's.  Farley and Heller even got their hands on it and made a pretty cool mix.  Though I like all the mixes on the twelve inch and am including all four in a zip.
The 45 features a cover of the 60's classic Be My Baby.  I haven't heard it but I definitely think The Impossibles were simply made for that girl group sound.  Apparently they have a track called Meet Me Again which only appeared on an indie compilation release.  They later became a four-piece band but remained as obscure as before and eventually just broke up.  DOWNLOAD DELPHIS HERE
