It Sounds Better With Your Eyes Closed is a new EP from Topeka, KS based artist 1Day. Okay first off, this album is wild. The brightly retrofuturistic intro is beautiful and clear. The ethereal vibe really sets things up nicely for the 2nd track Bar=Magic!, a jam which totally rocks and has elements of pop punk and emo. Then things calm down a bit with the aptly titled Truce, a smooth and loungy track that taps into sentimental reflection. There’s actually quite a bit of musical variety on here for it just being an EP. Lock Down is a powerful, radio ready jam, with a delightfully creepy, attention grabbing opening. The vocal performance is quite good, and I have to say this is my favorite song on the album. 1Day’s fanbase refer to themselves as “DayMakers.” Well, count me among them. It Sounds Better With Your Eyes Closed is teriffic. It sounds good, period.
