It’s the latest hooky offering from Lazy Sidekick, and it’s absolutely broken the good vibes scale. Written in the age of rona, the track digs into what life is like in a post-pandemic world.
There’s a twist though. Brighter Than Yesterday gives doom and gloom a kiss goodbye and embraces an optimistic view instead—lyrically, that is. Frontman, and wordslinger, Tom Dixon focused on things like reconnecting with neighbours and the incred essential workers. It’s the perfect juxtaposition to the dark and moody melodies anchoring the track, and it’ll give you the warm and fuzzies. So if bingeing Netflix has got you feeling a little stir-crazy and you need a perk-up anthem, you’ve got one right here.
Brighter Than Yesterday is one of the most promising punk-rock releases of the year. Prep your vocal cords because you won’t want to miss out when this one hits the stage.
As good as Brighter Than Yesterday sounds blasted through a room or car, we’re just itching to hear it echo through the walls of a crowded bar. We can just picture it now: punters singing loud and swaying from side to side with mates with a beer in hand- lucky for us, the band’s got gigs lined up from next month!

Prep your vocal cords because you won’t want to miss out when this one hits the stage.
