The Jealous Sound
Summer 2000 saw the release of The Jealous Sound 5-song CDep on indie start-up, Better Looking Records. The band's fanbase grew rapidly as The Jealous Sound toured the country and shared the stage with At The Drive-In, The Get Up Kids, No Knife, Death Cab For Cutie and The Promise Ring. Magazines worldwide caught the excitement of The Jealous Sound's debut with glowing remarks in Maxim, CMJ, A.P., Kerrang and more. SPIN heralded The Jealous Sound as "the rock you must have".
With the success of Better Looking Records' CDep release, The Jealous Sound signed a record deal with Mojo Records in 2001. Within weeks of signing, Mojo lost their distribution and announced sweeping layoffs. The Jealous Sound found themselves in limbo. Months later, Mojo was bought out by Jive Records (home to such artists as Backstreet Boys, Jars of Clay and R.Kelly).
Obviously mismatched on Jive, The Jealous Sound managed to escape and wasted no time in signing back with former label, Better Looking Records. The Los Angeles record label is home to releases by No Knife, The And/Ors, Australia's Ides of Space and most recently, a sold-out Jimmy Eat World limited edition holiday single.
Channeling alternative bands from the 90s, punk bands from the 80s and adding their own current attitude, Daylight comes at you with catchy riffs and hooks that will make you want to scream out every word. Pennsylvania keeps churning out amazing young bands and Daylight can be added to the top of the list. Six Feet Under Records.
