Delays - Video shootAs Delays get closer and closer to the release of their new EP, Love Made Visible (out November 12th), more and more news leaks out about them…

Sunday saw them play a quick acoustic set at Southampton’s Joiners’ Oxjam festival (click for photos and review), which sounds like it was amazing (as could be expected). See videos of three new songs here, here, and here.

Delays - Video shootI’ve mentioned it time and time again, but Delays are one of my favourite bands these days, and as news slowly leaks about their forthcoming EP and Album, I get more and more excited about it.

Today’s new announcement (well, find by a forum member) sees shots of their new video being posted on flickr – it looks like it was a messy affair!

This is in addition to the first play of “Love Made Visible: The Torchteam remix” on XFM the other week.

In case you haven’t the time to listen, the track is AMAZING. It’s like the first play of Valentine – simply amazing!

More video screenshots after the jump.

Delays bounce back with new album and EP

By on Wednesday, 29th August 2007 at 12:19 pm

DelaysBrace yourselves. You’re going to be hearing a lot about this band from me over the coming weeks and months. Delays, my favourite band, have announced details of a new album and EP that have been a year in the making.

Everythings The Rush” is the new album which looks set to be released early 2008 and as a taster for the album a five track EP “Love Made Visible” will be released on October 22nd. The tracklisting looks promising – even the track names sound like they’ll be anthems already.

1. Love Made Visible
2. You See Colours
3. We Together Make A City
4. Love Made Visible (Torch Team remix)
5. Slow Burn.

There’s also an exclusive interview over at The Mag, which is full of suprises – as one person on the Delays forum mentioned, it’s all about “Elton John, Nudity & Watersports…” Trust me, its better than the mental images you’ve got in your head right now!


Live: Delays – Oxford’s Zodiac – 19th December 2006

By on Wednesday, 20th December 2006 at 7:13 pm

Along with the Christmas party, another British institution of late appears to be the trend of bands doing a special one-off Christmas show in their hometown. This is the case with Southampton’s Delays, who played Oxford’s tiny Zodiac on Tuesday ahead of their hometown gig at Southampton’s Guildhall on Wednesday.

Their epic, summery songs are the perfect antidote to the freezing temperatures outside, adding some warmth to the audience. After a short intense set by Oxford based Fell City Girl for support, Delays walked on stage and burst right into “Lost in a Melody”, an electronic tinged stomper that is equally at home in the fields of festivals and the caverns of clubs. With this, Aaron, Greg, Colin and Rowly ran headlong into about 20 songs of pure quality that could convert even the most hardened of sceptics.

“On” has reminded me of Hot Chip’s “Over and Over” for a while now, with its catchy repetitiveness, and rather nice use of the strobes in the tiny Zodiac made for an entrancing song. “Bedroom Scene” was a chance for three quarters of Delays to take a break, as they left Greg to do the gentle strum with a lone light and a mass sing-along that didn’t quite work. The rest of Delays returned for new song “Girls on Fire”, which is tipped to be on their new album that’s going to be out next Summer reportedly, and if all goes to plan should set the festival scene on fire.

They closed their main set with “Long Time Coming” from their debut “Faded Seaside Glamour”, and Greg’s masterful footwork and over-excitability clearly made several girls at the front’s day. This was the song that got everybody going, having shaken off the winter blues and finally embraced the warmth they were giving off to the crowd.

When they came back for an encore we got a special version of “White Christmas” with Greg solo on his guitar, which was sublime and made my evening. We then got treated to two of Delays best songs from their last album, “Hideaway” and “Valentine”, both pop-classics in the making, and both failed to make much entry into the public’s mind.

Sometimes bands just don’t make as much impact into the public’s consciousness as they should, and Delays appear to have this misfortune. However, whilst this is the case they’ll continue to play small shows of people “in the know”.
