I’m a sucker for all the TV crime shows – think Numb3rs, Criminal Minds, etc. – and one of my favourites is Fox’s Bones. I also love Bones’s John Francis Daley, who joined the cast in season 3 as FBI psychologist Dr. Lance Sweets. Turns out, as I found out just about an hour ago, Daley is also in the rock band Dayplayer.
It’s pretty obvious that curiosity got the better of me, and I looked up Dayplayer to try and find some songs to listen to. I found Peak, which I absolutely love, love, LOVE. Daley is a very talented singer, but the best part about this band is that it’s not just a famous lead singer and a bunch of other guys.
All five members of Dayplayer – Daley, Peter Potyondy, Luke Hall, Tien Nguyen and Matt Fleming – contribute to the song, and, as is evident from their varying musical influences (from Van Morrison, Wilco, Stevie Wonder, Radiohead, 311, and Joe Satriani, to name just a few) the band can’t really be described as sounding like anybody else – Peak has a sound that seems very unique to Dayplayer.
