Saves the Day
Saves the Day showed a new lineup and a new attitude with 2011’s Daybreak, a record replete with power chords and a “keep on keepin’ on” vibe. A digestible blend of Weezer and Simple Plan, the band remains as catchy and angsty as ever. Sure, their songs are predictable and could form the soundtrack of a late-'90s teen movie, but they also offer a comforting mix nostalgia and earnestness. As long as there are depressed high schoolers doodling lyrics in the margins of notebooks, Saves the Day has a place in today’s musical climate.
