The long foretold and expected rise and rise of Waylayers is well and truly underway at the moment and with every new release the London lads seem to go from strength to strength. They’ve already found success in the US with their most recent EP as well as with “Medicine”, which topped the iTunes electro chart. Earlier this year they played SXSW and were amongst the most favourably received and vaunted acts to perform, and, as if that wasn’t enough they are set to release their new single, “Take Hold” on the supercool and wonderful Alocopop Records in September.
All this and last year they headlined the Alphabet Bands stage at Norwich Sound and Vision (no doubt the highlight of their ever more impressive career so far – ahem).
Whilst in America the guys did what all the cool kids want to do, and spent some time with the guys and gals at Sofar Sounds and recorded a session with them for a very appreciative audience. As long time supporters of the band we are delighted to be premiering their stripped back rendition of the aforementioned electro #1, “Medicine”, which you can check out below. Once you’ve done that, we recommend you head on over to the Sofar Sounds YouTube channel and check out more of their fantastic session.
