Don’t let the fact that this band has the word “rain” in their name. Rainy Day Crush do with their music exactly what their name suggests. They crush miserableness and put a rainbow sized smile on your face in seconds!

They have been around for over a decade, have gone through break-ups and line-up changes but they are back with a brand new EP, Calamity, to brighten up our days again.

All the tracks are upbeat and it’s true that their sound can be described as, in their words, “too catchy to be indie and too honest to be pop”. My personal favourite from the EP is “Have It All” – they had me hooked at the whistling intro. Have a listen…

Smiling – aren’t you? The EP is released on the 15th and if you only listen to one new band that day – and if it’s raining – give them a listen. After all, who doesn’t want to smile like a rainbow, right?

Catch up with them now!
