Dark Light Daybreak - Very Good, Based on 1 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

On their third album, Saddle Creek's Now It's Overhead don't stray much from the formula of layered guitars and vocals that they already displayed on their first two efforts, but that doesn't mean that Dark Light Daybreak is a monotonous or boring record. Rather, the band, as it's matured, has taken what they've previously done and expanded upon it, adding subtle new dimensions and intricacies. This results in something that is slightly more aggressive musically than what Now It's Overhead have played before, with songs like "Walls" -- its quick, punchy chorus offset by a slower verse -- or "Type A" -- with a short, poppy, almost new wave guitar line and lyrics like "Blood pressure rising/Higher than it can get" -- presenting a different, and welcome, side to Andy LeMaster's writing.
