Café Society stride in with their catchy sax and drum-infused new release “Daylight Storm”.
Café Society, originally formed in Phoenix, Arizona as the power-punk trio The Convertibles in late 1981 by Chicago born and raised musician, singer and songwriter Richard Morris, the original lineup featured Morris on guitar and vocals, Burton Korer on bass and Monique Bera on drums. Inspired by local Phoenix bands The Jetzons and Meat Puppets, they played about a dozen live gigs and recorded a seven-song demo at Camelback Studios in 1982.
After raising five children and retiring from a 26-year teaching career, Morris re-formed the band in the Netherlands in 2019 with Russian bassist Andrey Zakharov and Paraguayan drummer Christian Palmieri, reviving the original 80s-esque style of Café Society and releasing the band’s first single, “Daylight Storm”.
The new band—re-formed and rejuvenated—has a vibe that is alight, musicianship of a high standard and energy that is peaceful; especially refreshing in a year with so much turmoil, this is a fantastic listen that is both healing and hopeful.
“Daylight Storm” takes us on a musical journey through a dark and gloomy storm whose cheerful and upbeat energy reveals a silver lining and sunshine beyond the tempest. Simply put, a wonderful experience and a top track.
