Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


"Delays" are an indie band formed in Southampton, England, consisting of brothers Greg and Aaron Gilbert, Colin Fox and Rowly. Likened to the Cocteau Twins and noted for the lead vocalist's astonishing falsetto, they gained much exposure for their supporting role to the Manic Street Preachers in their Past/Present/Future Spring 2005 tour. Their latest album, ''You See Colours'', was released in March 2006 with nationwide advertising and to a very warm critical response.

The second single, "Hey Girl," off their debut album, ''Faded Seaside Glamour'', was their first top 40 hit, in July 2003. They have not dipped lower in the charts than that milestone since.

The band was originally called Idoru, and under that name released the 2001 single "Safety In Numbers" on Blanco Y Negro records.
