Our Track Of The Day comes from Orlando, Florida based hard rock/pop punk band FELICITY. The five-piece consists of Damien Fagiolino (Vocals), Andrew Rapier (Guitar), Cory Comly (Guitar), Mike Alosa (Bass), and Tyler Dennett (Drums). According to the band, they were brought together by “a love of crushing riffs, soaring melodies, sing-a-longs, and pizza”. Felicity have been making waves with their live sets, including being part of the Vans Warped Rewind At Sea line-up!
Put simply, “Weekend Worrier” is a pop punk anthem for people who hate their job. The verses of the track combine high energy and smooth vocals as FELICITY reminisce about younger days and lost dreams as to where they’d be when they grew up.
When the chorus hits, it’s a collective rebellion with gang vocals tag-teaming, making it seem almost fun to join together in this mutual agony.
“Serving time to survive ain’t what we deserve”
A stand-out for me of “Weekend Worrier” is the bridge with soaring guitar, feeling expectant and hopeful, making you almost forget this was a ‘bad mood’ kind of song. It’s beautiful and touching, and builds even more with vocals, and then again as the band joins forces together.
I wanted the story of the song to end with scenes of hoards of people quitting their jobs en masse and chasing dreams, but instead the grind of Monday mornings just felt like something we have to accept; united as we stand shoulder-to-shoulder in surviving as best we can.
