Consisting of the thoroughly talented Mike Garbutt, Andy Pennell, Martin Boyle and Tom Klymkiw, St Albans band Daytona Catchups have recently released their powerful, passion-enthused LP Let It Go.
This unsigned band integrate their scratchy vocals with complimenting raw toned guitars, consolidating the reverberated talent heard within the album. Despite their English roots, originating from the outskirts of London, a conspicuous American rock-inspired voice is perceived throughout the album – with hints of both Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam.
The album gets off to a powerful start with ‘Living Now’; a track that features a memorable chorus with an exceptionally capable instrumental. Throughout each title on the album, this talent is distinctly visible – especially on my personal favourite track, ‘Reliably Undependable’. Beginning slowly, a crescendo transcends the track to another level, before reverting back to the primary tranquility heard at the start of the song.
Ending on the title track, ‘Let It Go’, this album carries exuberant vibrations throughout. Each track goes to prove that Daytona Catchups have an exceptionally sizeable talent which is evident throughout the entirety of Let It Go.
