Wake Up! Wake Up!
Artist: Everyday Sunday
Label: Inpop Records
Length: 10 Tracks/33.51 Minutes
Everyday Sunday has some caffeinated, adrenaline-laced pop-punk-rock ‘n roll to share with the masses on their appropriately titled third album release Wake Up! Wake Up!. Producer of the moment Ian Eskelin lends his tasty, hook-laden, ‘70s synth foundation touch (especially evident on the urgent track “Now You’re Gone” about a friend walking away, and the very cool worship of “Tell Me You’ll Be There”). Everyday Sunday manages to sound current and fresh with a little bit of retro touches thrown in that keep the sound interesting. The only drawback to Wake Up is a too-familiar sound in spots (little Switchfoot here, little Kutless there, lotta’ Relient K all over). But fans of the aforementioned bands will love this tight, hooky, 34 minute rocking treat. And the solid vocals (sometimes doubled?) of Trey Pearson add a different flavor then some of the current pop-punk bands. Check out some nice bass action courtesy of Dan Hunter on the title cut…and the anthemic conversation with God “Take Me Out.”
