The Take Off and Landing of Everything
While pop-punk delivered via excellent production and clever vocals isn’t a groundbreaking venture, Everyday Sunday still manages to captivate listeners. Christian pop-punk outfit Everyday Sunday has lots of potential to go places and that’s shown with their new album “Wake Up!, Wake Up!” As far as pop-punk goes this is pretty standard; ten tracks, a little repetitive, but still a pleasure to listen to. As noted, there’s a lot of quality production done in the whole pop-punk genre, but even with that precedent Everyday Sunday’s “Wake Up! Wake Up!”, goes above and beyond the production standard. How good the production is and how clean this album sounds is the first thing you notice with the album when you put it in and track 1 “Let’s Go Back” hits. Fortunately track 1 is a great song and it grabs your attention, after that though the album’s next three tracks are very similar musically. It’s not until track 5 that Everyday hits its stride with “Apathy for Apologies” and starts to go outside the box a little bit. Apathy has the best intro on the album and the chorus on the album would be the best here if it weren’t for “I’ll Get Over It (Miss Elaineous).” Miss Elaineous is the best track on this album and really shows the bands potential. Everyday Sunday then follows up with another great track in “What We’re Here For” that could pick up dark matter and make it dance. After that things drop off with the next three tracks, but they’re still listenable. Like I said, as far as pop-punk goes this isn’t groundbreaking, but it doesn’t mean it’s not good. If you’re a fan of the genre like I am, you’ll like all the tracks on this album, if you’re only a casual listener check out tracks 5, 6, and 7. “Wake Up! Wake Up!” is a great debut for Everyday Sunday and it’s a big sign of bigger things to come for them. Look out for these guys.
