Nearer Than Heaven





As a precursor to releasing their debut album, Faded Seaside Glamour, in the US, Southampton UKís Delays are re-releasing their delectable debut single, ìNearer Than Heaven.î As originally heard on Player .043, this shimmering summery good time is evocative of The Laís, The Byrds and even Chris Isaak in the middle. Frontman Greg Gilbertís angelic tones float over the jangly backing to form the basis of a really high quality guitar pop tune. It may take Gilbert ìNearer To Heavenî by singing in the fashion he does, but Iíll be ìNearer To Heavenî once I get my hands on Delaysí full length, due to hit US shelves on May 18.
