Delays gig in Gloucester

Event ended

With sold-out tour dates across the country, so-called ‘secret’ gigs being swamped, and a confirmed appearance at this year’s 02 Wireless Festival in Hyde Park, not to mention a new album about to hit the shops, Delays are pretty busy this spring to say the least. But the Southampton band has managed to find just enough time to squeeze in a live gig at Gloucester Guildhall in March.

Whether you usually find yourself nursing a hangover or watching repeats on the box on Sundays, this month – after letting your slap-up roast lunch go down, naturally – let the boys from the Delays’ Sunday evening gig, on 16 March, set you up for a more inspiring week.

For first time potential fans of Delays, according to organisers the four-piece: ‘burst their Technicolor musical balloon all over the UK music scene in 2004 with their debut album Faded Seaside Glamour, sending the critics into an attempted pigeonholing frenzy, while 2006's follow-up You See Colours only went to confuse and frustrate journalists further.’

The band themselves admit, their style is ‘too soft’ for Oasis fans and ‘too pop’ for Libertines lovers – who incidentally, were also signed to Delays’ former record label, Rough Trade – but with effortlessly poppy tunes, distinctive vocals, chiming bold guitars underpinned by inventive, intoxicating rhythms and slicing stabs of electro, the band have carved a fan club niche of their very own – with plenty of supporters from across Gloucestershire predicted to turn-out for their only county date.

With new album Everything's The Rush released at the end of April, don’t waste any time catching Delays live in a local venue with a cracking atmosphere.
