Daybehavior - Silent Dawn
Synthpop If the poppier "It's a Game" was all about beautiful summer days, sunshine, butterflies and all that other kind of hippie stuff, "Silent Dawn" is more about nights in the city and a glass of wine. It's calmer and darker than the prior digital single. This song is focusing even more on Paulinda's vocals, which are absolutely great. It's a song of hope, love and anxiety. Alienated in a world that should be familiar, but knowing that a brighter future is at reach.

At least it's darker and calmer until the disc-o-matic machine Parralox get his hands on it. But unlike Midas who turned everything to gold, Parralox turns everything to electro disco music. Usually Parralox's remixes are great, but in this case I think it's a bit out of place trying to pop it up forcefully.

Parameterial does a better job by including a beautiful piano version of the melody in the beginning and is making it even more minimal and dark, creating a perfect atmosphere that suits the song's original thought and structure. The ever so talented remixer of People Theatre have added a very nice flowing sound to it and makes it somewhat more energetic, great work.

With this second single, Daybehavior increases my longing for their new album and strengthen once more prove that they are an electro pop force to count on.
