The single ‘Y Control’ is taken from Yeah Yeah Yeahs debut album of 2003, ‘Fever To Tell’, which has been certified Gold in the the UK and has sold more than 456,000 copies in America where the success of sinlge ‘Maps’ has rocketed the band from cult heroes into the alternative mainstream. On this side of the pond, the bands performance of the single on Top Of The Pops was a precious moment, a gem amid the tinsel of the Top 40. ‘Maps’ status as a modern classic was confirmed when the White Stripes covered the song during their encore at this years Reading Festival.

The foursome that make up Southampton’s Delays, fresh from supporting acts like The Coral, The Thrills, McAlmont & Butler and Clearlake, are releasing their second single. ‘Hey Girl’ sees a welcome return to good old jangly guitar indie, sweetly sung with an earnest edge just like they had in the olden days when I was in the lank hair and leather jacket brigade (Look it was cool then, alright…). The first of the B-sides, ‘Zero Zero One’, is a fantastic waltzing soundscape with vocals evoking The Cocteau Twins at their abstract voiced pop pinnacle. Last, but not least, ‘Overlover’ is a passion fuelled uptempo ballad with rock flourishes that leaves you wanting more.
