TRACK-BY-TRACK: Daylight – One More Fight
October 7th, 2015
After touring in all four corners of the world over the last few years, Barcelona pop-punks Daylight are finally back with brand new album ‘One More Fight’ for another round of uptempo fun and infectious choruses. Singer and bassist Olek Burek filled us in with a track-by-track guide of the new release before you’re able to get your teeth into it on October 23rd.
01.) ANTHEM OF THE BROKEN
This is the first song we wrote for the album. It came out pretty easy, with a super catchy chorus.
Anyone who listened to the demos said this was the best song that we ever wrote. Very fun to play live when audience is singing louder than the PA!
Olek came out to the rehearsal room with a raw idea of a melody for this fast pop-punk song and everyone loved it. We always had this feeling that we needed to talk about nostalgia. Some friends had to leave the country for work, we now only get to see them from time to time. It’s also about touring and leaving your loved ones for several weeks. When you’re back, nothing has changed. Friendship and love is hard to break.
This song was literally wrote in a morning. The melody came out so easy and we directly knew how the song was going to be. We decided there and then that it had to be the first single. The lyrics are about consequences. We believe in karma, every action has a reaction and even though we’re not violent, there’s always someone wanting to show off. This song is for them!
04.) NOW OR NEVER
We don’t write love songs, because it’s a really saturated topic, although, this song felt like the right time to talk about that shy moment when you like a girl so much that you are a loss for words feeling really dumb.
05.) WE ARE STRONG
Our band had a really bad year just before recording ‘One More Fight’. The singer left the band and financially it was not easy to continue. We knew that coming together was the only way to cope with the situation. We struggled on and started to write the new album. ‘We Are Strong’ is about the writing process and the internal difficulties we overcame.
06.) ANOTHER DAY
We like albums to be diverse, so we threw in a downtempo Pop song! Why is society telling us to follow trends and the establishment? We have the choice to play music and fight for our dream. Should we grow up? No! Today is just another day.
07.) BEST DAY OF OUR LIFES
‘Best Days…’ is a straight up pop song. We wanted to try something new in studio so sampled drums, mixed with piano while Wojtek raps. Then, there is the boom with the guitar solo. We love it, and Spanish radio seems too, also! It got aired extensively this summer.
A punk rock anthem: raw guitars with a gang chorus. Fast songs are always fun and this one could easily be compared to an Anti-Flag or Pennywise track.
09.) END OF THE WORLD
Our favourite live track! Last time we played it, it was opening for New Found Glory and it was one of the highlights of the night! The guitar solo is sick and the whole melody rocks. The meaning? Let’s party like the world ends tomorrow. Why not? And we did. Carpe diem!
10.) CRAZY YOUTH GONE WILD
Wojtek wrote the whole song, melody is super neat and the lyrics refer to younger kids messing around in the city, not caring about anything. We were not sure if it was going to be on the album, but Andrea Fusini, our producer, had a crush on this tune.
‘One More Fight’ is out on October 23rd 2015, and you can purchase it online through iTunes (here).
