A new band has entered the music fray and they are off to a strong start. Who are they? Almost Monday, a San Diego-based band comprised of Dawson Daugherty, Luke Fabry, Cole Clisby and Michael Leto.
The widely popular Christian rock band, Switchfoot, first mentioned Almost Monday last fall across social media. Switchfoot consists of a pious group of men, strongly devoted to spreading light to the world. Consequently, a band like Switchfoot supporting Almost Monday proves the new band must be a group of bright personalities as well. Almost Monday is always quick and eager to interact with fans online.
The band’s official debut single “Take Me Higher” aired across iTunes, Spotify, and Tidal streaming platforms Nov. 1. Plenty of praise has already been conveyed through the band’s fan base, already nearly 600 people strong. This number will quickly rise as devoted fans spread Almost Monday’s name to other friends and across social media.
However, one could never tell that “Take Me Higher” is the band’s first official single. It exudes a confident, knowledgeable tone of a band that fully understands the music scene and has created a unique sound that fits perfectly into the present-day desires of music consumers. The combination of pop and disco-funk elements, among the synthesizer, bass dynamics and Daugherty’s well-trained falsettos, ring with a Michael Jackson flavor that result in irresistible dancing.
From here, the potential future projects from Almost Monday seem limitless. The young men have already showcased their infectious, talented dynamic through one single—clearly, they could excel in many different genres. Until then, add “Take Me Higher” to Spotify playlists and spread the word to fellow Hope College students.
