Today’s Song Of The Day is “We Love Like Vampires” by Sparks The Rescue. The group was a part of this summer’s Vans Warped Tour line up for half of the tour and now are in the studio working on their next LP. Having hailed from Saco, Maine, it was harder for the group to establish a fan base. But through hard work they landed themselves a spot on MTV’s “I Want My Music On MTV! Competition!”. Sparks The Rescue’s older music is incomparable to the sound they have now. Having started out as a screamo band in 2005, Sparks has made a complete turnaround in their sound as it now fits more into the pop punk scene. Making the appropriate switch attracted a broader audience for the band and made them popular all throughout New England. They then later signed with Fearless Records.
“We Love Like Vampires” is a perfect example of their genre flip for it incorporates everything a pop punk song could ever need. Catchy lyrics, poppy riffs and toe-tapping beats keep listeners hooked. Lead singer Alex Roy’s vocals are full of unique inflections and are suited for slower songs as well as upbeat ones. The message of the song is fun and flirty and perfect for anyone who just wants to rock out and have a good time.
For me personally this is one of my favorite songs to listen to with the windows rolled down and the sun shining down. With the new vampire phenomena sweeping the nation today, this is a breath of fresh air considering it isn’t truly about vampires. It’s easy to get swept up in the infectious rhythm and soon you will find yourself singing along without even realizing it!
