RIYL: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Best Coast
Label: Run For Cover Records
The final winter winds have dissipated into endless blue skies, and what a better band to greet the sunshine than Swedish 5-piece The Sun Days. ¬†As is the case with any debut album, there’s an immediate need to show how you’re unique from the rest. ¬†Don’t Need to Be Them¬†does just that, a perfect pop single as breezy as Skeeter Davis’ version of A Summer Song¬†and as earnest as The Pains of Being Pure at Heart’s¬†Young Adult Friction.
Similar to The Pains’ debut album, there’s a generous¬†helping of twee influence embedded in The Sun Days’¬†jangly guitars and bleeding heart melodies. ¬†And if you’re a fan of¬†Bethany Cosentino’s vocal arrangements in Best Coast, you’ll find an immediate rush of serotonin with¬†Elsa Holmgren’s warm harmonies. ¬†Run For Cover Records is on a roll with their band roster, and The Sun Days is yet another reminder that they plan on making a dent in the music scene for a long time.
