Enemies in the Grass, "Day After Day"

While Enemies in the Grass has only one single and one EP to their name, one of the members, Walter Sczesny, was involved with quite a few other bands, and I might use this brief post as a jump-off for future musings on some of his other work, and other bands in his orbit.

A song that has charm for days and that is stuffed full of hooks, some of which transfer an air of the Cure at their most acoustic, or mid-80s Lawrence, like Felt's Ignite the Seven Cannons. And a song that, because of its flutter of American college-radio peachiness, teeters dangerously close to the edge of goody-goody annoying; I shudder when a synapse fires and I connect these guys to the Rembrandts.
