It’s hard for me to think of a band who flushed a promising career down the toilet more aggressively than Saves The Day. I loved the first two Saves The Day records, and I really thought they were going to be the next Blink-182 after “Through Being Cool.” They had a few haters, sure, but that was a record that just about everybody loved, from moshbros to emo girls to pop punk kids. Then Chris Conley started listening to The Beatles too much, singing an octave higher, and they turned into a boring indie rock band, and they pretty much fell off the map.
MOAR LIEK SAVES THE GAY AMIRITE
Which brings me to their new song: easily their worst, most boring shit to date. It’s always sad to see a once-awesome, fun band turn into generic artsy bullshit that wouldn’t even stand out on the Urban Outfitters in-store music, but it hurts even more when the band was as good as Saves The Day used to be :(
