“It’s hard to stand out as a rock band in 2018 in a music industry driven by drum machines, vocoders, and midi keyboards. It takes a band that’s truly compelling, an act that brings something visceral and attention grabbing to the table. Look no further than Arson Daily, a young trio from Boone, NC that brilliantly blends 60’s influences with biting alt-rock foundations.
Formed in 2014, Arson Daily has already begun to blaze their own trail within the North Carolina music scene. Comprised of vocalist/guitarist Zach Dunham, bassist Quincy Platt and drummer Adam McLean, Arson Daily signed to Split Rail Records and released their debut, self-titled full length in 2016. These three indie rockers have since relocated to Raleigh, NC to release their newest work, an EP titled “What’s on Your Mind?” The new tracks are full of dynamism, an equal amount of rousing, high-energy jams and a couple of slow-brooding, moody tunes that makes for a compelling return to the scene.
Arson Daily stands out for a myriad of reasons, whether it be their rich storytelling or their infectious melodies and grooves, it’s hard not to find something you love within their music. Their live sets are wildly energetic with the audience stomping alongside, lost in the retro rock ‘n’ roll. Their tracks perfectly capture the feeling of a fleeting youth—a divine mixture of sentimentality and yearning, packaged as danceable—leaving you begging for more long after the last note rings out.”
