Chasing Daylight / Press

“It is always a treat when Chasing Daylight stops in at our place. Guaranteed to rock your face off and that's the way we like it! Not only are they a phenomenal talent but also they are just an all-around great group of guys. They possess a musical repertoire that easily puts most bands to shame. This band rocks some really stellar, melodic and catchy original jams as well as a wide array of cover tunes. All this is combined with an edgy sound and a stage presence that brings the house down. These Louisiana boys are sure to strike a chord with any music fan. ”

“The eight tracks range from spacey alternative compositions to straight up commercial rockers, and almost every one of them has some incredibly catchy element that will stick with you after the first listen. The sounds will conjure images of some of the best 1990s alternative rockers, like Soul Asylum and Collective Soul, but there's a definite modern vibe to what the band does, too”

“The range of Chasing Daylight which performs in several configurations is shown on two of my favorite songs. "Only a Number," possibly the best track on the record, is a well-produced rocker that shows the band's harder side.There's a tough main guitar riff that's balanced out by some slinky, shiny alternative licks loaded with cool echo and delay effects. It's a layered and polished effort that's the equal of pretty much any song on current rock radio these days and better than many of them. On the other end is the acoustic track "Wasting Time," which closes the record. It's a simple, organic tune that sounds like it was written and recorded off the cuff. The slapping guitar reminds me a little of Extreme's "More Than Words," but Waters' vocals and the bongos I'm assuming played by drummer J-Frey give it a little more grit and soul. In its simplicity, it works as well as the more produced numbers earlier in the record.”

“Overall, Chasing Daylight's first record is a well-produced and well put-together collection of songs that are definitely rock radio ready, but also have enough of an alternative vibe to set them apart from the crowd.”

"On their new self-titled album, local rockers Chasing Daylight show a definite knack for the kind of melodies that worm their way into your ear and get stuck in your head."
