Since Slow Daze came out a few weeks ago I’ve found myself religiously listening to all five well crafted Blonde Summer tracks in full on enjoyment of experiencing the precise moment when a band fully comes into their own.
You don’t have to go any further than the opening track “Slow Days Fast Company” to understand just exactly what I mean. Sure the overall sentiment of personal attachment filled with appeal should be enough to get anyone stoked for this song, what lies underneath the indie-pop facade is what keeps my attention though, this is a band at ease and comfort amongst each other with some solid songs to stand behind.
“Slow Days Fast Company” comes on like a midwest anthem developing into a Brooklyn showcase with an L.A. gloss, it only helps that summer is wrapping itself up to coincide with a perfectly fitting song such as this.
The other stand out track is “Walking Space” which does more to demonstrate the craftsmanship going into their collective dynamic. (Does anyone else hear Sweet’s “Fox On The Run” when the background vocals hit just before the one minute mark?) I really dig the lead on this track above all the other songs, it accompanies the lyrics ideally.
The entire EP is a vivid snapshot of what makes summer days with good friends so great, check it out for yourself through the bandcamp link below.
