This week’s Music Monday (I know, I’m off by a day) is the Hartford, Connecticut based duo of Donovan Rex and Max Friday, also known as Cheerleader. With a pretty catchy guitar hook and chorus, the first track, “New Daze” has a familiar sound, almost like it could have been a new wave/alt song straight out of the 80’s. It kind of reminds me a bit of New Order. The second track, “Dreamer” is pretty catchy as well.
Although there are only two songs on their Bandcamp page (and a third on their Soundcloud page), I’m really looking forward to hearing more from these guys. If they every make it up to Boston to play a show or two, I’ll definitely be there!
