Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
In the House (High All Day) - The Bad Years
It's a long-weekend Monday here in Canada today (yay Victoria Day!) so I wanted to find a hazy, fun alt-pop song for you, and I feel like "In the House (High All Day) by Los Angeles' The Bad Years fits the bill perfectly.
Check it out below:
"In the House" is really hard to get out of your head: there is a great balance between a pop-sound, and a slightly grittier, garage alt-rock feel that...you wouldn't think works, but it really really does. Light, airy vocals grounded by a really good bit of alt-rock guitar just makes this song one of those 'perfect for a hot summer day' tracks. This is a long weekend Monday in a song, which is why I had to talk about it today--and American readers can have it at the ready for next weekend.
It's been a while since The Bad Years released a track--"In the House" was actually released later last year (I just recently stumbled upon it, or we would've chatted about it earlier), so hopefully we will hear more from The Bad Years soon....but if you need some more of them in your life, be sure to check out their EP Beautiful Liar, and especially the title track...it's pretty damn great.
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
See you again tomorrow (with probably another completely different sounding song, so I can hate myself come Playlist time...)
