DAYLIGHT ROBBERY - FALLING BACK TO EARTH

CODE 7 - SOLAR FLARE RECORDS

OCTOBER 13 2014

 

 

After a successful first outing which saw them not only take on-board a lot of column inches in praise of their sound, Daylight Robbery also landed a few choice support slots last year culminating in a spot at Sonisphere.
Album number two is pretty much proof that that first outing wasn’t just a flash in the pan as the band channels the Hard Rock of the eighties with pronounced Melodic leaning that also recalls both the mellower fare of bands like Journey.


Best of all are tracks like the sweet sweep of ‘Samarah Never Sleeps’; the sheen of ‘I'll Be Seeing You’ and the urgency and class of ‘Redlights’: all of which along with their fine first album and spirited closer ‘Running Out of Time’ suggest the band is a real contender despite the sheer numbers of class Melodic Rock bands out there at the moment.

 

The icing on the cake, however, has to be the epic flavour of the spirited building ballad ‘Between the Lines’: a song that will stay with you forever once heard. This is a band that seems to have it all musically, from fine vocals and stunning guitar to graceful keys and rhythm-section robustness. They also have the songs to back it all up: expect big things.
