Pop-punk duo Remember the Days have a firm handle on the 4/4 punk-pop style––and they stick to it like gorilla glue. All three songs we checked out are cut from the same sonic cloth––growling punk guitar, 4/4 drumbeat and lead singer Ashley Cordelia’s distant voice. Lyrics are decent and the hooks are okay, too, reminding some of us of early 2000’s alt-rock. The main issue is the flat production quality––the drums sound extremely thin and lack any kind of punch, and Cordelia’s lead vocals appear disconnected from the music. This adds up to a lack of sonic excitement. Though her tone is solid, Cordelia might try using background vocals/doubling to beef up her parts and bring more life to these songs.
