This week Brooklyn-based electronic group Little Daylight released their debut album Hello Memory. On Tuesday they celebrated its release with a record release show at Mercury Lounge. The album’s summer release is pitch perfect, as its as enjoyable of a pop record as you’ll find. The band smartly pack on the hooks in a no frills, no shame sort of way. There are a lot of other bands doing the whole electronic pop thing, but not all of them play live instruments, and play with as much of a joyful confidence as I saw from Little Daylight.

Due to some heavy NYC traffic I only was able to catch the tail end of their set, but from what I heard, it sounds like they’re on the verge of breaking out in a big, big way. They finished things off with a great cover of Disclosure’s hit “Latch” and sent the tightly packed Mercury Lounge crowd home quite happy.
