Delay Trees Readymade album has found a very welcoming audience worldwide, recognizing the band’s own distinctive take on dream pop textures whilst nudging experimental borders. Steady personifies this approach to the max, an intense, metronomic build up grows into Rami Vierula’s laconic, dreamy vocals. Just as Steady feels like it disappears the track erupts into cacophonous drum fills whilst retaining it’s steady (sic) ring.
Steady’s video reveals the origins of Readymade’s album cover design. It’s been much commented on, and is almost iconic amongst our album sleeves. The Readymade album cover is often compared to Peter Saville‘s design for New Order‘s Temptation single. To be contrary to this line of thought, a precarious cycle ride reveals inspiration sometimes comes from the most mundane surroundings, where accidents lead to coincidences.

The video was made by Delay Trees bass player Sami Korhonen. A one take effort with no edits, riding the bike and filming with a smartphone in one hand! Sami also designed Readymade‘s sleeve.
