Standing Like Statues – Daytime TV

​The single, ‘Daytime TV’ from Cambridge’s own, ‘Standing Like Statues’ is a (sometimes) uplifting love song presented with plenty of soaring guitar and drums and the bravado of a great rock rhythm section.

The real story here is the vocal performance. It’s money. Vocals are delivered without any doubt that you understand the singer and what his message is. It’s energetic, passionate and angry at times, but always believable. The female harmony vocals possess an eerie quality, both in performance and production, but they intertwine perfectly with the pop qualities of the lead vocal – it’s on-point in this song and also what sets it apart from its counterparts in this genre.

‘Daytime TV’ is short and sweet and delivers its message skillfully and passionately. The accompanying illustration is worth a mention too!
