Delays - Everything's The Rush (2008)

How do you feel about the La's "There She Goes"? Do you love it? Is it the perfect pop song? Because the Delays have based their sound on that song. Their Brit pop features a soaring angelic falsetto, backed by sweeping strings, with just enough propulsive club beats mixed in (sort of like the Music) to keep the otherwise lush pop moving. I've been lovin' their light and breezy pop ever since "Hey Girl" induced spastic frolicking a couple years ago. Their sound hasn't changed much, but I'm not complaining. Check out "Love Made Visible" and "Touch Down" for a quick taste of bliss.

Here's the question that I have: Are they called the "Delays" or "The Delays?" Or both?
