Another spectacularly unspectacular keyboard-orchestra offering from Delays, then, and one with what sounds like Christmas bells at the end this time (in April! Gadzooks!). In the same way a roomful of chimps with typewriters will eventually end up writing the complete works of William Shakespeare, Delays could spend infinity shoving together faux-epic string effects and squeeze-neck vocal takes, like on this effort, in an attempt to recreate something akin to their 2004 breakthrough ‘Long Time Coming’, but our money is on the chimps bagging an opening night at the Globe first.
