The Dutch trio Daily Bread calls their indie pop "Sexy Garage Dance". However, his second album "Iterum" poached in a completely different musical terrain. Reinforced by a fourth musician, keyboarder Atser Damsma, the band around frontwoman and singer Kimberly van der Helden can follow their dream of old New Wave sounds. "Allure" sounds like Blondi's Debbie Harry is intoning a song from The Cure. Sexy by all means, dance by all means. But garage? I don't think so. "Loverst" offers besides again synthpop-typical keys these choppy indie rhythms of the early wave time, but can also exist in the modern electropop cosmos à la Empire Of The Sun ("We Are The People"). The title track is an all too commercially trimmed girlie pop number. A small ghostly instrumental like "Metamorphosis" already knows how to convince more. Further sympathetic Indie-Electropop- numbers and even a Pianoballadenhymne ("You Have Become") follow. If you didn't notice the wave circus back then, "Iterum" is a really nice journey through time for you.
