Philly modern rock outfit A Day Without Love – the rotating cast lineup headed by singer and songwriter Brian Walker – released a playful music video for its single “Broken Bridge” this week. With propulsive drums and guitar guiding Walker’s soaring vocals, the very DIY video follows the course of a house party at Walker’s place that goes awry in a funny-sad way. The song can be found on A Day Without Oscar, a split single with Uncle/Father Oscar, back in August – get it at Bandcamp and check out the video below.

Local bands A Day Without Love and Uncle/Father Oscar recently released a split EP, fittingly titled A Day Without Oscar. Alt-rock four-piece A Day Without Love, who just released their latest EP Confessions of the Innocent Mind earlier this year, starts out the EP with “Lost Children,” a song with the same apocalyptic feeling the band explored on Innocent Mind. However, during ”Broken Bridge”, the band puts on a more intense rock vibe, a slightly new direction.

Also featured on the bill is Uncle/ Father Oscar, whose band name is an awesome, hopefully intentional reference to Arrested Developement. Continue reading →

Philly alt-rockers A Day Without Love deliver an introspective new EP Confessions of the Innocent Mind

Considering their name, you’d expect A Day Without Love to be a pretty dark band. But darkness is just one facet of their new release Confessions of the Innocent Mind which, in their own words, is “a side A/B single about clarity, darkness, and introspective perspectives of life”. There’s a hard rock edge and urgency to “Expose” which finds the band in full rebellion mode as they sing “remove monopoly and give us our freedom” while “Save” is a quiet number that channels existential angst. Celebrate the new release with the band at their upcoming local shows: April 1st at The Fire (tickets here) and April 17th at World Cafe Live (tickets here).
