There is one thing you need to know before I start, I like Black and White videos, I don't know why, I just do, which is lucky for Daystar as this video is indeed in black and white.
The Manchester music scene is garnering pace at the moment again, from the lull of the last decade, we see shades of brilliance, and the great venues keep popping up.
Daystar are a 5 piece with a modern take on the 90s Manchester scene, but they are definitely not lost in 2011. They bring back the sound with freshness, with "Slip and Dive", they attain a level of professionalism in the song and video that some well known signed bands struggle to get. The song was produced by mansun engineer Ronnie Stone and that shows how serious this band are to break the big time.
They've played live on ESPN's talk of the terrace, which for a band that has only been gigging for a year is quite remarkable.
Daystar are gaining recognition to levels they probably could only have dreamed of a year ago, but with talent like this they shouldn't be wondering why, they have definitely not reached their true potential yet, and I look forward to hearing them more and more in the future.
This song is sleek, the video is straight forward and tells you everything you need to know about this band, they have a great vibe, and you feel it throughout the song.
You should check them out as their live performance on ESPN shows they are as sleek live as they are on video.
