D-Day - Misunderstood
Info: D-Day are a 4-piece band from Galway. The band was formed by brothers Darragh (lead guitar, lead vocals) and Keith Whyte (drums & percussion) who joined forces with school friends Chris Breslin (bass, backing vocals) and Cathal Sweeney (rhythm guitar, backing vocals).
This year has been their most prolific to date, with a relentless summer tour which began in June when they supported UK act 'Tokyo Taboo' (Workman's Club). From there, 'D-Day' shared the stage with the 'The Riptide Movement' and 'The Strypes' (Rock the Docks) and opened for 'Delorentos' and 'The Frank and Walters' (Carrickmacross Arts Festival). Their hectic summer schedule was brought to a fitting end with their debut show at Whelan's and a performance for Philomena Lynott at 'The Bash for Philo'.
Funnily enough the opening and recurrent guitar riff for D-Day's 'Misunderstood' has a little harking back to Thin Lizzy's sound. Darragh Whyte's vocal trembles in a pleasingly controlled way through the song's chorus (Mick Jagger - Sticky Fingers anyone?), and the overall feel you take away from the track is a classic late 80's / early 90's rock song. There's a solid build up throughout the whole song from start to finish, and even though they Galway quartet already have an EP under their belt, the signs are good, they don't feel or sound like 'just another pop rock band'.
The video was released last Friday, 18th November, and was directed, shot and edited by Michael Boyle of Actium Films and features actors Hannah Wright and David Collins.
