Balance and Composure
According to Balance and Composure, they can be loud, quiet and everything in between. A pretty apt description in a nutshell. Once you get down to an intricate school of thought, the lyricism of singer/guitarists Jonathan Simmons and Andrew Slaymaker show things in a different light. Having all met in the Philadelphia suburb of Doylestown, PA through mutual projects during their high school years, Balance and Composure decided to start what they called a "real band" once former projects dissolved. Once completing the formation of the band, Balance and Composure hit the ground running and have yet to look back.
A sonic assault melding influences such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Neutral Milk Hotel and Nirvana, their upcoming full length "Separation" adheres to the band's namesake. A cohesive listen of anthemic and melodic guitar blitzes with poignant lyricism, rhythmic thrusts and an abrasive pop knack in its overall deliverance, "Separation" churns in a fortified enclave of gutiar fuzz and impending rhythms that drive heavily. Balance and Composure may wear their love for early 90's underground alt rock on their sleeves, but they are in no way merely a "throwback" band as much as they are an outfit who respects their influences, and pushes them forward into brash sonic terrortory with the us vs. the world ethos of geniune punk rock.
After self releasing their first EP "I Just Want To Be Pure" in 2008, followed by their "Only Boundaries" EP and split EP with Tigers Jaw both on No Sleep Records, Balance and Composure are surprised the world with their debut full length "Separation", out now on No Sleep Records, which could also be found on virtually every "Best Of 2011" album list made.
Channeling alternative bands from the 90s, punk bands from the 80s and adding their own current attitude, Daylight comes at you with catchy riffs and hooks that will make you want to scream out every word. Pennsylvania keeps churning out amazing young bands and Daylight can be added to the top of the list. Six Feet Under Records.
