We featured Waylayers back in 2010, when they were one of the stand out bands on Kitsune Maison 10. As is too often the case, in our drowned in sound world, we lost sight of Harry, Dave and Joe, the East London trio that make up the band, but now they’re back with ‘Fault Lines’ a five track EP due out in June. Lead single off the EP will be ‘S.O.S’, a synth heavy slab of euphoria, which at first listen sounds like a TWD remix of a good Coldplay. Expect a video some time soon.

Right, that sound you heard was the Coldplay Klaxon. I set it off, with my lazy derivative track description. Special agents will be scouring the internet, setting off the Klaxon really loudly in the ear of anyone that writes that Waylayers sound at all like Coldplay. Beware.
