Day Beauty EP

Article written by James A - Oct 5, 2005

Starting off with I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside this quickly falls into MOR pastiche. You get the impression of office based pals with a reasonable degree of competency and too much time on their hands. When they feel like they are soaring they rarely get off the ground; basically good pub music that feels too sanitised for anywhere else. With a voice reminiscent of the Ocean Colour Scene's lead singer the vocals lack any urgency or purpose. With good production this wouldn’t sound out of place on a Jon Bon Jovi solo album. These comparisons aren’t supposed to sound scything as I get the impression that these are legitimate influences.

Third and final track ‘The Longest Word I Know’ continues in the same vein but is marginally better with improved vocals and atmospherics. It sounds like a poor idea well executed. A bit of research will probably reveal the band to be younger than I’d assume but if this is a mid-life crisis it beats the ponytail, leather trousers and motorbike.
