I’ve just started to hear this new song. I wasn’t sure if I’d heard the band before. The sound was new and interesting. The song was good. There was passion and great storytelling.
Check it out for yourself.
Back In the Day – Downday
The song is about two kids coming into their own back in the old days. I would say it’s about a high school love. For many of us those were the good old days. We didn’t really have that many cares. We thought nothing could touch us and there were those high school loves that still come up in the occasional memory.
There’s a definite rock edge to the music. It’s pretty cool. There is a lot of rock in country these days, but Downday seems to have a more legit rock sound. There is a feel of rock from the past 20+ years in there. It would be interesting to hear about their influences.
So I was still trying to remember where I heard about this band before. I thought maybe it was a rock band that was now making country music.
Then it dawned on me…
My favorite golfer is John Daly and for a while JD has been showing his love for the band.
