Farnborough based Delayed Departure have just announced that their 3rd EP entitled ‘Your Colours’ will be released on the 19th October, and the first single ‘Neon Lights’ being unleashed on the 7th September.
The writing and recording of ‘Your Colours’ saw the band pulling on personal experiences and exploring issues that have affected their lives. A serious step up in both style and substance, Delayed Departure’s 3rd EP is destined to be the launchpad for their career with a sound that sits alongside other UK talent such as You Me At Six, Deaf Havana & Mallory Knox.
Vocalist Mike explains a bit about Delayed Departures roots:”We originate from the South Eastern town of Farnborough, a town with nothing much to shout about, so we want to be one of the reasons the town gets recognised. With the limits growing up in a small town brings, we wanted to pay homage to its simplicity while venturing out. exploring more ideas and concepts that perhaps we would have taken for granted living in a bigger city.
We’re just a group of close friends who enjoy making music, and are amazed every day when people tell us how much they love what we are doing!”
