Five song EP from Leicester rock band Daylight. They prove hard to pigeon-hole. "Time" comes in kicking with big shameless guitar riffs and a slightly incongruous but nevertheless pleasingly exuberant guitar solo, but then they turn everything down for the title track. Likewise "Nobody Know" has a funky bouncing strut action, but never quite lifts off. Daylight seem like a band holding something back, perhaps lacking the confidence to rock out like they secretly want to. 'Double Yellow Lines' doesn't sound like the finished article, but "Time" has a certain big-heartedness to it, and the piano driven "Don't Be Long" shows a diversity and a maturity that hints a better things to come.
