Daytona :: "The Road"
Daytona, a New York three-piece, head relentlessly south on latest single, "The Road." With poly-rhythms in guitar loops and the lightly break-beat drums, "The Road" chases some of the Local Natives/Foreign Born/Lord Huron world-pop end of the independent rock pool. "The Road" recalls the melody of Talking Heads "Nothing But Flowers" so much that you can almost hear Byrne moaning "You got it, you got it" at the edges. The tropical-pop ode is surely reverence, or a bit of accidental genre derivation. Daytona's "The Road" is quite excellent in its own right, an irrepressible bit of pop to warm the corners.
