The Film Dailies
Staring Up At Giants Again
3 out of 5 stars
The band calls their music indie pop electronica, but with little imagination, it can also fall under avant singer/songwriter, or modern electro-folk.
The common thread between those labels and the Film Dailies debut release, Staring Up At Giants Again, is a simplicity which runs throughout the 11 song disc. Even when melodies, lyrics, or beats are going a mile a minute, there’s almost a calm zen to the chaos, and for anyone who knows the two songwriters behind The Film Dailies, Molly Cherington and Michael Lloyd, it’s a perfect fit.
Both musicians in the Boulder scene for some time, the Film Dailies is a smash-cut to another realm for them and bandmate John Nelson, but one pulled off with smart directing and an endearing, clever, cast which is engaging throughout.
