Stay What You Are

Saves the Day: Stay What You Are

Stay What You AreHailing from New Jersey, Saves the Day plays its brand of snotty post-punk/emo pop that is one part Green Day sneer and another part whiny Jeremy Enigk from Sunny Day Real Estate. No, they’re not breaking any major ground here, but they don’t completely suck either. The lead singer looks like he’s about 14, so maybe once he moves of his mom’s Jersey basement and gets a real job, his music will mature a little too. Until then, we appreciate the energy and hope that they lay off the Red Bull and downers.
