Sundials' appropriately titled First 3 Songs 7" is a tidy, tasty trio of tracks that marks a promising beginning for the three-piece. If you enjoy the sunny, jangly, '90s alt-rock-influenced punk sounds of fellow upstarts Failures' Union, this should be directly up your alley. There's not a whole.


Sundials' appropriately titled First 3 Songs 7" is a tidy, tasty trio of tracks that marks a promising beginning for the three-piece. If you enjoy the sunny, jangly, '90s alt-rock-influenced punk sounds of fellow upstarts Failures' Union, this should be directly up your alley.

There's not a whole lot to say except that a bounty of melody and exuberantly sung vocals are wielded by Sundials here at every turn. Earnest and raw harmonies infect "Neighborhood Well," while four-minute closer "Fox Hunters" plows through with simple, power-chorded chugging verses, a toe-tapping chorus and well-served guitar tone changes.

I think the hooks could stick a lot more firmly and the dynamics employed more vigorously, but again, this is certainly a respectable start.
