This is the soundtrack of the sunny days you’re missing out by staying at home playing partypoker for hours (kidding, it’s been raining for two days now even here in supposedly-sunny-Portugal and it feels good to stay at home for a while). Blonde Summer’s second EP Slow Daze couldn’t be more appropriate for this season, as the band name lets loose.
Just by seeing the album cover and the band-album name combo I bet you imagine what this sounds like: surf-rock influenced pop tunes, drenched in sunlight and washed out vocals to chill by the poolside to. Opening tracks “Slow Days Fast Company” and “Robots on Command” are the highlights here - great riff on the chorus of this latter, though it seems like we’ve seen this before.
What we didn’t see happening plenty of times though is a feel good hit of the summer that is able to live beyondthat specific summer is hard to find. I’m having a hard time believing this could be the case, but hey, there’s still one month left. Could we just get a little bit of warmth for what’s left of this lackluster “summer”?
