This is a great uptempo new wave/dreampop track which provides a modern twist on a sound harkening back to the mid-1980s, for fans of bands like the Psychedelic Furs, Flesh for Lulu, and Wire Train. Waves of the Echo’s “Can’t Stand the Daylight” has lyrics about not wanting the fun from your night to ever end and not wanting to see the daylight (even if, or maybe because, your band is from Finland and your summers have almost continuous daylight). This track appears to have been around in demo form since at least 2011, and we’re very glad that they included it on their new album which came out last month. The chiming guitars evoke both the nighttime fun and the bygone ’80s, while Rände Rännäli’s sparkling vocals fit the mood perfectly. This band’s new album has a bunch of great tracks, and the energy of this song will brighten your mood anytime of day.
