From the first lead line to its drifting refrain, Cavalier Youth’s packed with delay.
Chris: “We’ve always used the Boss DD-20s, but I’ve also got an old Ibanez AD-80. It’s a short delay because it’s an old analogue pedal from the ’80s, but the sound’s great, so I use a DD-20 for all of the click-track stuff, and then something a bit warmer for the looser parts.”
Max: “I was using the Roland Space Echo. I was introduced to them on Sinners Never Sleep and I was like a kid...”
Chris: “It was like, ‘How fast can you break a Space Echo?!’”
Max: “It was a bit! Then I saw my friends The Skints use a Space Echo pedal [RE-20], so I got one, and that’s how the riff in Cold Night came about.”
Cavalier Youth is out now.
