成立于06年的英国后摇乐团，07年正式定名为WakeThisDay。经过一年的创作，08年发行了首张专辑Gaze Into The Beyond。
专辑中每一首都值得细细品味，比如Sombre Skies for Sombre Eyes里缓慢流淌的韵致钢琴音符会有些许Sigur Ros的影子~~~
"WakeThisDay take inspiration from many other instrumental and experimental bands, using guitar, bass and drums to create progressive songs with texture and feeling. Instead of playing riffs, instruments are used to create more expansive music, and guitar lines are the primary lyrical expression."
Formed in 2006 under the name of (...and it was a) Cold and Lonely Winter, WakeThisDay emerged as the new name for the band in 2007, more fitting to the band's sound and direction. The demo 'In The Shadow Of Paper Mountains' gave the band its sonic template, and set the grounding for the debut 2008 release 'Gaze Into The Beyond'.
"Melodic and progressive post-rock that can be beautiful and uplifting, but also heavy and tense - a journey where guitars do the talking."
'Gaze Into the Beyond’ is finally out (August 08)
After an enjoyable year or so creating our debut album, 'Gaze Into the Beyond' is now out. A lot of time has gone into defining a sound for WakeThisDay, but once things got going the music slowly came, and this album is more than we could have hoped for. We are very pleased with the outcome and the feel of the songs.
The album takes a little journey through its bright, sombre and sometimes darker passages, but overall we think the album sounds very hopeful. Despite all the work we always feel good when we listening it
