New York alternative pop quartet are really on the verge of blowing up, find out why...
Take one listen to "Dumb," the new single from The Heydaze, and it feels like an instant smash. Seriously, after hearing this anthem from the New York quartet—Jesse Fink [vocals], Andrew Spelman [guitar], Alexander Glantz [bass], and Tyler Matte [drums]—you're immediately singing along. There's a few reasons for that. The Heydaze actually make pop feel fun again. There's so much depth to the production on most of the music on the radio it ends up feeling like a math problem, a science experiment, or both. There's also usually a team of producers and writers behind those big hooks you hear. The organic, in-the-moment energy is sucked out.
These four dudes are in a room together writing songs you can sing along to. They keep it simple, but they're also super clever and funny. If you zero in, "Dumb" is hilarious at points. We've all been there, and they paint a vivid picture that practically pops out of your speakers. It probably doesn't hurt that Fink and Spelman have an Ivy League background, adding some of that Rushmore, Wes Anderson-style humor to the mix. It makes it all cooler.
The guitars are just as bright as the melodies, and that gives everything a genuine life that's so welcome for radio and the current scene. We need The Heydaze, and that's why they're going to take flight straight to the top.
