Day is Done by The Mars McClanes: Review
Although they didn’t reunite until 2020, the Mars McClanes has always been a part of Dallas’s thriving music scene until the early 2000s.
Their newest single “Day Is Done” has been officially released with experimental tones to their usual indie rock formula. It is about coming to terms with the idea that love is better built on mutual respect and loyalty than being rushed into temporary flames in your twenties.
The first demo of this song, recorded at Southern Comfort, consisted of a handful of acoustic guitars layered due to a certain inspiration drawn from a concert experience. The one that you and I get to listen to is more powerful. A soft, well-recorded plucked guitar sets the mood at the beginning of the track. Although subtly delayed to reap reactions, all of the harmonies work wonderfully together and lend solid backing to the lead voice. Graced with rich vocals, gliding with impact through a pond of harmonic guitar-driven waves, it will leave you with an indescribable sense of peace and joy as it did to me. The drums at the front of the mix provide a tremendous fill for the ears. In fact, my attention was initially captured by the fantastic snare sound within the verses of the song. The bass was well-executed and immediately had me bobbing my head in time with the beat as I could hear the variations mixed over the standard rock formula. Go on and give it a listen to find the epic resemblance of your favorite bands like One Republic, Spoon, The Fray, and many more!
