Product Description

About the Artist

Delays return to the fray this May with a brand new album on Fiction Records.

Since the release of 2006's "You See Colours", which spawned the alpha-pop hits "Valentine" (an NME Track of The Week) and "Hideaway" the Southampton quartet have had a roller-coaster time of it: from sold-out U.S. tours, playing to huge crowds at T in The Park, The Isle of Wight Festival, The V's, a bull-ring in Mexico and recording their new album in a chateaux in Spain, to nervous exhaustion, personal upheaval and parting ways with their old label. 2008 finds Delays confidently looking to the future, with a new deal with Fiction and a fantastic new album packed with technicolour hits. The schoolboy friends and band-mates for a decade (brothers Greg and Aaron Gilbert, Colin Fox and Rowly) are geared up and ready to go.

Recorded over twenty days in Spain with producer Youth (Primal Scream/Verve/Paul McCartney),"Everything's The Rush" is the sound of Delays striding confidently into a new chapter. The tunes are even brighter, the choruses even bigger, the need for emotional rescue greater than ever. "We recorded at Youth's villa in Grenada, which is high up in the mountains" explains Aaron (keyboards/vocals). "The live room has got a huge window with panoramic views over the Sierra Nevada range. When you're staring at a mountain in a room full of amps, you want to make a sound that's as big as the sky."



The songs may be the musical equivalent of a huge gulp of alpine air, but listen closer and the lyrics reveal a darker aftertaste. "One third of the album relates to the detritus of us getting out of our old deal and our private situations, and the other two thirds are about the joy of discovering new things and the beauty of making music again" explains Greg (vocals/guitar). "A song like "Hooray" sounds really uplifting, but it's actually about me having O.C.D" he laughs. "It seemed too easy to write a maudlin song. For me, music is at its best when it's fragile and human; people crave that connection." "For us," says Aaron "melody is king. We want to make music which sends a shiver down your spine." Hear it in the rich swell of "Keep It Simple", the sky-scraping stomp of "Touchdown", the rich pop melodies of "Love Made Visible" and the string-soaked cornerstone of the album "Pieces".

Turn up the speakers; join the rush.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooray for album number three! 21 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
Delays have been for sometime now Indie-pop's best kept secret. After their sparkling debut 'Faded Seaside Glamour' mixed Beach Boys-esque harmonies, with the coolness of the Stone Roses and the falsetto of the Cocteau's, the sky seemed the limit for this Southampton fourpiece.

Second album 'You See Colours' in many ways scaled new heights but somehow missed the public consciousness that was otherwise preoccupied with the new breed of retro 80's rockers like the Killers, and the street commentary of the Arctic's, Delays seemed to have missed a great opportunity to strike it big, despite being the freshest sounding band to emerge in over a decade, willing to mix electronics with the sound of a definitive classic British guitar band.

And so to album number three, 'Everything's The Rush'.. After November's limited release 'Love Made Visible EP', that set the tone for a sharpness in sound and direction, like they'd finally struck a finely tuned balance, particularly on the Aaron Gilbert vocal led 'Panic Attacks', and the lead song Love Made Visible (which appears here), Delays seemed to be hinting that something great was on it's way, and they haven't disappointed..

Kicking off with 'Girls On Fire', a track devotees to their live shows are all too familiar with, a sweeping, bombastic wakeup call, this is the perfect intro to what can only be described quite aptly as a Rush of a record, one that deserves a place in every sane persons record collection, jammed between the La's and A Hard Days Night, probably.

And the energy just doesn't subside for one second as we stumble into lead single 'Hooray', Greg's self confessed OCD account.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Solid, Yet Somehow.... 13 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I'm one of the few Yanks who's actually heard of this fantastic band. I've ordered their last two releases from Amazon UK because we're too damn slow to new music here in the States! I pre-ordered from AUK and received the disc in my door three days before it was even scheduled to drop in the US - and it was almost half the price of ordering the "import" on Amazon US. Nice!

That said, here's my brief review of "Everything's The Rush."

I like it. I like it A LOT. Yet, I can't help but think the boys are taking an ill-advised whack at the mainstream on this one. I thought "You See Colours" was a brilliant step up from their amazing debut "Faded Seaside Glamour." I was hoping for a similar evolution on ETR. The first four tracks are outright genius. However, the disc sort of sputtered-out for me as I made it through the last few tracks. Who knows, maybe those last few songs will start to grow on me?

I'll be the first to admit, I miss the falsetto on this record. The vocals are strong, but I really dig it when Greg Gilbert layers his various vocal styles and leads with the high stuff. That's probably just me. I thought Aaron's vocals were just "okay." Again, I may be in the minority here, but I'm glad his vocal contribution was limited. That said, "One More Lie In" is an absolutely killer track. Layers, fatness, big beats. Really great stuff.

Please read my comments in the context of my four-star rating. This is a very solid release. The Delays are one of the best bands going right now - stupidsolid musicianship, great production and really nice songwriting.

Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's definitely a rush 9 May 2008
By cezzie
Format:Audio CD
Simultaneously makes me want to get up, jump around (in an attempt at dancing) and go for a lie-down ...
The lyrics can be a bit cheesy or plain lazy sometimes - but you just get so swept along with the melody it's hard to care.
Buy it, I guarantee a single listen will leave a big grin on your face and a warm-buzzy feeling inside ;-)
[now who is being cheesy]

5.0 out of 5 stars The anthem of the summer 7 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
While personally I didn't think "You see colours" quite matched the standard of their first album, this is not what you might term a return to form but a truly magnificent record. It's crammed full of catchy guitar riffs, powerful sweeping synths and most importantly of all, melodies that capture the soul and lead it almost to the edge of heaven. There won't be a better album this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rush to buy it! 3 May 2008
By S. Jones VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Delicious new album by the psychedelic-tinged indie popsters whose earlier two albums redefined the word 'euphoric'.

On a few hearings it's not a radical departure but when you've got things right in the first place, why change too much? The uptempo tracks such as Love Made Visible and Touch Down are giddily grin-inducing, and even the slightly mockney lead vocals of keyboard whizz Aaron Gilbert on One More Lie In and Friends Are False fit the Delays template nicely. It's when lead singer Greg Gilbert hits his straps that the album truly soars however, as always.

Favourite tracks are hard to pick when the standard is so high; it's easier to find those few which don't instantly lodge in the brain and for me the slowie Pieces might need a few more listens. The one downside is perhaps an overuse of sweeping string arrangements which, while perfectly acceptable, don't necessary add much to the confident yet delicate melodies peppered throughout this record.

Delays are back and doing what they do best. As the song says, Hooray.
