DB Kinney - 'Out of Daylight'
Review by Patrick Joseph & Staff
“Out of Daylight” is an intense and gripping piece of music. A pensive chord progression and a driving rhythm create a sense of urgency and passion in this song. The vocal take is expressive and insistent. A nod to the timeless sound of indie-rock, this tune seems to contain an inherent significance. The energy of the instrumental performances is phenomenal, and the overall result of the song is an infectious energy.
Lyrically, “Out of Daylight” explores themes of perseverance and endurance. “hear it now as the feelings turn to thunder, reason why this tide it pulls you under, only when the faces start to sing, turns on and winds up this whole damn thing.” The passionate energy of the music combines perfectly with the lyrical content. “have you run out of daylight on your own, feeling the tide pulling home, you’ve run out of daylight all alone, but nothing stops me getting on.” The earnest vocal delivery injects these lyrics with meaning.
The arrangement of “Out of Daylight” is amazingly effective. The cohesion between rhythm section instruments is fantastic, combining to create a wave of excitement in the music. The harmonic development from verse to chorus is brilliant, resulting in a huge emotional payoff. Vocal takes are engaging and confident. Overall, “Out of Daylight” is an inspiring and uplifting song that you’ll want to hear again and again.
