Little Daylight - Glitter and Gold

Single review by

When done properly, pop music can sound amazing; joyful, uplifting, fun. It doesn't have to be the identikit dross that clogs up the phones of preteens across the globe. Not all music has to be cutting edge, overy experimental or noisy to be impressive, and this is something that's clearly understood by Little Daylight. The Brooklyn group release their first EP, 'Tunnel Vision' next week and this single (their third in total) will be included, and it's pure pop and it's also, if you leave your inhibitions behind, a pure delight.

'Glitter and Gold' bounces in on a rush of natural enthusiasm that feels like it's telling the world that this is how pop music should be made in 2013. They probably won't achieve the success of Katy Perry or whoever, even though they deserve to crush her under the weight of one of their stellar choruses, but they can sleep well at night knowing that, when it comes to pop music, these guys have it nailed. Hopefully the history books will remember them for being a poptastic antidote to all the ghastly material that passes for chart music.
