Fine Lines Day 1/3/21
The rising, incendiary Los Angeles native guitar maverick Derek Day has released his latest wide sweeping and operatic single, ‘Fine Lines’, on all streaming platforms, with today's visceral and hypnotising accompanying Video Of The Day. While the song kicks off with a bright, full sound with yearning lyrics, it never settles into the simple repeating chorus structure one might expect. Instead, it embraces a baroque, emotive shape that continues to build as it goes, ending up closer in scope to that of Queen who Derek is a lifelong fan of. A guitar virtuoso who marries licky riffs with manic vocalisations, Derek has been welcomed onstage by the likes of Steve Vai, Moby, Ted Nugent, and Slash.
