In the press
It was a long, long time since a song by a Spanish group captivated me so much.
“Días mejores” grabbed me from the start, it’s overpowering, overwhelming, an adrenaline rush. For days it hasn’t stop ringing in my head. It revitalizes my awakenings, and that’s not easy, believe me. It is one of those very difficult to find bright bursts.
The keyboards are a wink to Roy Bittan and Danny Federici at their most inspired moments. The initial guitar riff it’s like an infection… there are details enough to satisfy the listener at first listen, like an amalgam of crystalline and powerful sounds, that goes straight to the nervous system.
- Pablo Vaquero for TVE
Días mejoresit’s another lesson in rock’n’roll. The album’s title track, with its catchy chorus, is a tribute to all who love rock and broken dreams, to the ones that keep us still fighting, for the ones who think is not bad to feel too much.
- Clara Ochoa for Cine y Juegos.com
I’ve not just seen the future of Rock & Roll, but the present, and its0 name is “Stormy Mondays”.
Better days is freshness, crystalline and powerful guitars, cadenzas that don’t leave us indifferent and compel us to keep the rhythm with the foot, intense lyrics that evoke early Springsteen or Dylan himself, and other sounds that seem taken from the best album done in the other side of the pond.
It’s a new take for music in Spanish, made in Spain, something different yet great to hear. Highly recommended.
- César Redondo
With “Better Days”, Stormy Mondays recover the sound in Spanish with whom they played in “Days of Rain, Broken Hearts” (2002). Four tracks of this rock classic, clean and powerful that both characterizes them. Four pieces that just sound better in their fantastic live shows. We keep asking ourselves why these kids are not more visible on the first line of rock scene.
