Watch: Waylayers – “Magnets”

2 Nov

It’s hard to believe it has been over a year since we last wrote about one of our tips for the future, Waylayers. In our defence it is partly because the guys have largely been locked away writing or out touring the length and breadth of Europe, but they are back now and we are pleased to be writing about them again today.

Out on November 26, “Magnets” is the new single from the East London trio and features their trademark soaring sounds and precision synths, just turned up to 11. It’s a big, stadium filling track that sounds bang up to date and retro at the same time. It’s the kind of song that wants to fly out across the wide fields of a festival as crowds sing it back, “We have/grown up/finding magnets in us”. We absolutely love it.

The video, which you can see below, features singer Harry controlling an ever increasing number of ball-bearings as they float around him, his flat and then the London skyline. It looks beautiful.

Being advocates of fairness, we thought it only right that, as Harry gets to channel his inner Magneto in the video, that we give the other Waylayers the chance to say which X-Man they would be. Joe (guitarist) told us that he would be Colossus, because of his superhuman strength, and Dave (bassist) said he would be… The Gingerbread Man, which tells us so much more about him than we thought we’d asked.

“Magnets” is released digitally on 26th November via Insomnia.
