I was lucky enough to see The Delays last weekend (in Stoke) and they showcased this new song ('Lost in a Melody') along with a couple of other, very promising, new songs.
It's great that they finally released 'Wanderlust' as a single because it was one of the stand-out tracks from their brilliant debut album. The Caribbean steel drums work a treat here and Gregg Gilbert's vocals are on top form. It's a very 'floaty', feel-good and inspiring song.
As a departure from their usual style, 'Lost in a Melody' is more electronically orientated and the synth work is great. It's slightly heavier than their previous outings and contains a great foot-stomping beat. Everything works very well here and it's great to see the band being slighty heavier. Overall this is a highly recommended single which will hopefully push these guys more into the forefront of the current swarm of 'indie' bands. Top stuff!
