The Houston-based rock outfit Robbie Seay Band delivers up a solid collection of 11 original tracks on Better Days, which take listeners on a journey of sorts.
Musically, listeners can expect to hear pop, rock, alternative and even folk influences. The songs are crafted in such a way that many of them are striking and catchy all in a single beat.
It surprises me that it took a handful independently released efforts before the band caught the attention of Sparrow Records. I was immediately drawn to many of the songs on the project, including the opening and title track, "Better Days."
As much as the music, what really grabbed me was the lyrical composition on the song. The opening lyrics relate, "First of all thanks for listening to our songs/We hope this finds you driving in your car/Or wherever you are--breathe out and breathe again/And know life is hard but it's worth the breathing."
Other highlights include the anthem-like "Faith of Our Fathers," the refreshing and inspring "Breathing Air Again," and the prayerful "Come Ye Sinners."
Overall, the project centers on encouraging listeners and bringing them into a place of worship. Whether you are driving in your car, or somewhere else while you are listening, you are taken to a peaceful and intimate place through the songs on Better Days. This is quite an impressive major label debut. While I'm enjoying Better Days now, I can't wait to hear more from this band.
