You might wonder at times where all the lost melodies in songwriting have gone. Well, look no further than the latest from New York metro area band The Day Traders, because they seem to have swiped those very melodies from the atmosphere and laced their songs with them. It’s no coincidence that veteran artist and songwriter Saul Zonana, who has a knack for churning out addictive pop music himself, produced the project. And make no mistake, this stuff is almost sinfully addictive. There are hints dropped of artists like the Beatles and maybe a more modern sounding REO Speedwagon or Poco, but that’s only for those of you who need a point of reference.

“Sad” is just the start of things to come, launching immediately into guitar and harmony-driven pop that feels good enough to elicit a smile from the most bitter of persons, despite the negative tone of its title. “Why” sounds like the perfect radio single, nicely crafted to crescendo into a huge chorus. “Out of My Head” harkens back to the ‘60s with Beatlesque guitars and a hook reminiscent of the Turtles. Other standout tracks are “The Night They Said Goodbye” and “Goodnight,” the latter of which reminds me of early Vertical Horizon. And the haunting piano ballad “Come Home” is simply beautiful.

While a lot of these songs tend to be similar in structure and sound, the fact remains that the tracks are so good that that doesn’t even matter. Plus, anything Saul Zonana puts his fingers on tends to be like musical nicotine, at least to me. The Day Traders are a breed of band that many would say is a dying variety, and for you people they offer hope that all is not lost in the landscape of today’s music industry.
