Delays — Wanderlust
Steel drums! A boy singing so high you could be forgiven it was a girl! Yes, it's the traditional Indie Guitar group for this year. Not a great year for indie bands, considering that the supposed new discovery was a bunch of guys doing a rather insipid Jeff Buckley impression (and Coldplay have already filled that spot, thank you very much). This, though, is quite nice; lots of the usual swirling guitars, but the aforementioned steel drums give Wanderlust
a ethereal feeling, especially when combined with the vocals. It's not a song that is going to change the world, but great for a wistful four minutes.
