Daytime TV’s existence is an interesting evolution from past musical lives, but with their debut album, ‘Nothing’s On But Everyone’s Watching’ they shed that past like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon.

There is little left of their previous caterpillar life as they unfurl their wings and fly into the wide world with a stunning debut album that enthrals from the very opening notes of ‘side effects’.  

Daytime TV – ‘side effects’

‘Nothing’s On But Everyone’s Watching’ is lyrically thought provoking and sonically diverse with a range of influences evidenced as the album progresses through the likes of ‘little victories’ and ‘hush’, which set a high standard early on.

At their heart, Daytime TV are a rock band but they encompass a much further reaching sound then any standard rock act. As the album progresses you are treated to huge guitar hooks, tender moments, euphoric synth-laden tunes and everything in between.

The singles put out in advance teased the quality of this album, and the record in its entirety manages to maintain those standards. Stand out moments include ‘zombie’, ‘ugly’ and ‘side by side’ which we recently featuring on our ‘Discover’ New Music Playlist.

We set up that Playlist because we love new music. Is there any better feeling than discovering your new favourite act? Perhaps the bragging in the future when they are superstars, and you can claim you championed them early on? Well, it certainly feels like Daytime TV fit that bill!

With ‘Nothing’s On But Everyone’s Watching’ the band has put the world on notice with what will no doubt go down as one of the year’s best debut albums, if not one of the best overall albums.
