daysormay - Role Model
A stateside Phoenix: you have the infectious melody, the synth primacy, and the pristine groove synergy.
This post was originally published in December 2018.
My reference for this fun, new band of youngsters is a stateside Phoenix: you have the infectious melody, the synth primacy, and the pristine groove synergy. Plus, the video is just cool.
The secret sauce here is the syncopation: the way that straight half-note groove flams with the lazy triplets and the double-pump kick drum. Along with how the keyboard riffs off the lead vocal, and the fuzzy bass lines, this song just takes off and doesn’t look back.
it’s a statement about the way society nurtures its next generation; what’s missing right now is a simple mechanism for relaxation:
Not much of role model
can’t take it slow
I don’t want to be made to follow
but I can’t be left alone
With their new single Role Model, daysormay are sure to attract a lot more attention from the indie-pop crowd; this is a truly exuberant track about kicking off the expectations that others might have for you, and simply accepting who you are.
daysormay was formed in 2010 between 5 friends in Vernon, BC. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
