Daytrader – Twelve Years
What if I told you there was a new band who made the same type of exciting music as Saves The Day in their early years. Or as Jimmy Eat World around the time of Bleed American. A band that takes some Sunny Day Real Estate and Weezer and mixes it up with a bit of Taking Back Sunday. I don’t know about you but if someone told me about a band like that I would be anxious to hear their stuff.
It wasn’t untlll I started to listen to Twelve Years that it sunk in that I really missed a good new band to pick up where the aforementioned bands went astray. Daytrader has soul and emotion, the energy pours over these songs. Just take a moment to listen to ‘Firebreather’:
And there are nine more songs as good or a bit better on Twelve Years.
For instance the slower and more Sunny Day Real Estate-esque ‘After-Image’:
Twelve Years has classic written all over it. This is the kind of record that launches a band’s career and sees them play the bigger indie festivals in time. But just not yet. There’s a whole world out there that hasn’t discovered Daytrader just yet. So please cherish this band now, while you can. Cause Twelve Years is one of the records of 2012 that are worth cherishing.Back to reviews overview
