Sunny Day Real Estate were one of my favorite bands in high school. They’re one of those legendary bands that paved the way for much of the “emo” scene that became hugely popular when i was in high school. I started listening to bands like The Get Up Kids, Saves The Day, and Piebald right around the same time I started listening to SDRE. I remember my first introduction to their music was the stunning album “How It Feels To Be Something On,” which remains one of my favorite albums of all time today.
I was beyond excited when I heard that they were going to release a split with Circa Survive on Record Store Day. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to pick up a physical copy of the record today, but I’m happy to share the song here. While nothing will ever come close to the beauty that is “How It Feels…,” I must say I’m pretty impressed. It’s amazing to hear them back together after all these years.
