So I’ve been listening to a band called Day of Days for at least three weeks. Every time I mean to do a review, I forget that I can’t embed the player and that it might take a few more minutes longer than usual, because I’d have to write more words (oh, the loneliness of the long-distance music blogger). So today I’m going to banish that lethargy and get this up on the site.
Chances of Life is the latest EP from Day of Days. They released an album last year, about which The Scottish Sun said: “The smart money’s on them being the Perthshire town’s most famous export since Hollywood hunk Ewan McGregor."
Well, there you have it. It’s mainly alternative rock, emerging somewhere between the territory occupied by Modest Mouse and Trapped Mice. The guitars oscillate around the lead vocals, and the band blends loud/quiet intervals skilfully.
I think the first track, and the one in the video above, is the best one on Chances of Life, though I also enjoyed Three and Network Riot. The single was released a while ago, but you can find out all that on their website (the link is at the top).
