By The Polyphonic Spree
Welcome to the 00's where image and gimmicks are everything and then you can tag some music on if you fancy. The Polyphonic Spree are "them lot in white robes" you've seen on TV lately or at last summers festivals. "Light and Day" is their latest single release, with poptacular guitar, rolls of thunder and brass aplenty.
I'm sceptical about the need for 25 members of this troupe past a bit of a marketing angle. With primarily one lead vocal throughout the track, the parts where the full 'choir' enters sounds a bit too much those annoying school kids singing about geriatric family members. It's a happy foot tapper of a tune with a nice upbeat feel and merry optimism; "Follow the light and reach for the sun", yet it's as instantly forgettable as it is inoffensive. The tune is well orchestrated with various layers of instrumentation rising with the addition of more voices but the lead vocal is a bit too whiny and annoying after a couple of plays.
Follow the finger and reach for the eject.
