Celtic Soul and Irish Folk, with a sprinkling of ska, and a peppering of punk; a shake of shoe-gazing; and a pinch of ’80s synth pop! And more!
With Christian’s accurate, perceptive, and faithful recreation of the often iconic basslines which drive the songs in our set; along with Katy’s meticulous and conscientious attention to detail on the kit, Gouldy’s rhythmic acoustic guitar and passionately delivered vocals, and finally, the addition of Catherine’s violin, viola, and accordion (not to mention backing vocals and taking the occasional lead), The Daybreakers is, we feel, somewhat unique. Our line-up allows us to cover songs gathered from a diverse and vast range of bands/artists and eras: we don’t limit ourselves to violin and accordion songs (although we might have a few Levellers and Pogues tunes up our sleeves!); but, more, we use the complementary instruments to stand in for lead guitars, keyboards, saxophones etc. Songs by bands including Madness, Dexys, and Inspiral Carpets, using the accordion, and The Cure, The Smiths, and The Jam, using the violin, are just a tiny sample of what we get up to. And then there are the massive songs like Mr Blue Sky, and Come on Eileen – neither of which, it’s probably safe to say, you are likely to see many four-pieces tackling in a pub near you, any time soon!
The Daybreakers are also working on an album of original songs, a handful of which are beginning to sneak into the regular set: described by one particular friend as “If The Cure and The Levellers had a baby…!”
