Brooklyn is nothing if not a breeding ground for indie bands.
Great for feeling cooler than the rest of the country. Terrible for those who aren’t into incoherent mumbling over a mandolin.
Pop-rock lovers, Little Daylight is for you.
At first listen, the NYC trio has a catchy, head-nodding groove. You can’t help but be hooked by the heavily synthesized beats on the opening tunes of their debut album, Hello Memory. We could easily boogie all day to the second track, “Overdose,” which we discovered through their performance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
But the further you get into the album, the more the mood softens and the more you realize how starved the music scene is for heartfelt soft rock these days. (Eighties babies, you’ll especially love “Runaround.”)
Though the band’s overall vibe has a decidedly modern edge (a la Sleigh Bells at times), it definitely fills a void for those of us missing the heyday of Fleetwood Mac.
