For Fans Of

Saves The Day – Crime In Stereo – Hot Water Music


One of the better demos you will hear this year.


83 / 100

When a band features current and ex-members of the likes of Crime In Stereo, Latterman and Bridge & Tunnel just to name a few, you already know that the band is going to be something to look out for. Shortly after the demise of his former band Crime In Stereo, Gary Cioni swapped his bass for a guitar and launched his new band, Daytrader.

The first offering you can hear from this band comes in the form of a three-song demo, available to download on their bandcamp page. The songs are reminiscent of some of the later Saves The Day material, with the band’s vocalist Tym even sounding like Chris Conley at times.

Paper Pusher” is the standout track on the demo, and if they can keep writing songs of this caliber, the band will achieve great things. The vocals sound great, the guitar parts are interesting and the drum work is spot on, I can’t see what there isn’t to enjoy about this track.

The following track “Chromatic Living” is a tad faster than the following track and musically at times reminds me of Hot Water Music, minus the beard punk vocals. Closing out the demo is “Slow My Brain”, which hints at the potential this band has. The band definitely possess the ability to write a quality, catchy song, which leads to me becoming very excited to hear what the band will release next.

The demo may be receiving a physical release by the band later in the year, but for now you can download it here from their bandcamp page for free. It’s a free download, I don’t see what you have to lose really.


Very solid demo from the band, which has led to them already being picked up by Boston based label Run For Cover Records for their debut record, to be released in early 2011. It looks like the band has big plans for their future, and wont be slowing down anytime soon, so download this demo and keep your eyes peeled for what they do next.
