Dropping Daylight
Brace Yourself

Veterans of the Vans Warped Tour (including the one coming to a city near you this summer), Dropping Daylight is a Minneapolis-based quintet playing well honed, if staple, alternative rock.  On their debut, Brace Yourself, the band showcases its distinction from other alternative bands: vocalist Sebastian Davin’s keyboards, which provide a welcome accompaniment to the amped-up guitar-driven tunes that can, in the instance of “Take a Photograph” provide a primal, edgy power.

The songs are tight and compelling, and the album is well produced.  There’s a restless energy to Dropping Daylight’s music that makes Brace Yourself an album best played at high volume. Still, many of the songs feature catchy piano interludes, and keep things just enough in check. And while by the end of the album the tracks aren’t too easily differentiated, and the album sounds somewhat formulaic, there’s no denying that it’s a very fine formula. 

Favorite Track: Track  4, “Apologies”
