Daylight's for the Birds are: P, Jay, Amanda, Brad and Dave

We first saw this band completely by accident. Having never been to a show at Union Hall before, we got to the venue way before headliners Silversun Pickups took the stage and lucked into catching an opening set by the lovely Daylight's for the Birds. Normally we would have taken in a song and got back to Bocce, but these guys totally sucked us in. Lush, layered guitars and a gentle female voice keeping everything in place, the comparisons to previous BOTW'ers Asobi Seksuare all noted, but that can't really be taken as a bad thing. Surely there's room for more than one shoegaze revivalist band in Brooklyn.

They are back at Union Hall this Saturday with Blog-Rock stalwarts Snowden. You can hear some songs on thier myspace page.
