Dilly Dally - Get To You

Since 2009, the summer Wavelength festival has been a highlight of the season, slowing down the hectic "festival experience" to an Island pace and making the whole thing as much about the vibe and the location as the (always well-curated) music. When this spring's floods shut the Island down, there was a ripple of apprehension from many quarters at the loss of favourite summer hangs, culminating in the festival decamping to the mainland. The WL crew did an excellent job in emulating the festival experience in the outdoor/daytime portion, but it was harder to feel the same sense of relaxation and freedom in a bar.

In the between-albums lull part of the cycle, Dilly Dally took to the stage like conquering headliners, pulling apart their songs some to see how far they could stretch before snapping like elastic bands as they finished, yet maintaining each one's popsong core.
