Delays - Valentine
As a precursor to a new album, return singles don't get much better than this. Whatever the Delays have been up to since releasing their critically acclaimed debut Faded Seaside Glamour it's certainly not sitting in the sun relaxing.
There's something darker, more brooding about them in 2006. Valentine, admittedly released a week too late, is a rip-roaring rollercoaster of a song. Starting off with Greg Gilberts ethereal vocals floating across an thumping electro-beat before a rush of guitars kick in. And it doesn't let off here, it rushes into a crescendo of all these, swirling and mixing, that deserve to drag the rather dull charts kicking and screaming into 2006. Stuff the Arctic Monkeys, this tune should be filling the dance floors at your local indie nights from now until the end of time!
Welcome back Delays, let's just hope the rest of the new album, released at the beginning of next month, is as good as this.
