Sometimes we come across an artists that is not necessarily something we typically listen to, but today we are happy to present to you a Long Island band bringing back some sounds that will feel familiar. The alt-rockers, Break Out Day, have released their newest EP, Echoes of the Past.
It has been a long haul for the Long Island quartet, but the patience and determination has been worth it. In the summer of 2009, twin brothers Andrew and Jason Weisbein were influenced by emo and alt-pop artists like Blink-182, All Time Low and more of the pioneers of pop-punk, decided to start a band. For years they toiled away writing and composing new music all the while filling the band’s roster with drummer Perry Dornbush in 2013. While searching for a new lead singer and rhythm guitarist in 2016, they found and added vocalist/guitarist Brandon Wimberly. And the first single off the EP, “The Party’s Over”, is the debut release for both Wimberly and Dornbush and it is a triumph.
Break Out Day have found their groove and Echoes of the Past shows their growth and chemistry. Their unadulterated style is flush with grinding and stinging guitar riffs, wailing vocals and high-energy percussion. It is everything that you want in an emo-rock EP. While it only has 4 tracks, you get your party anthem and an acoustic ballad, with two additional tracks that border more on alt-rock.
It is not the most original music, but not all music needs to be completely original. Break Out Day‘s Echoes of the Past is a well-composed, clean production EP. It is worth a listen for sure!
