Dropping Daylight's debut CD, Brace Yourself, came out last week. Produced by David Bendeth (who's worked with the emo pinups in Hawthorne Heights) and driven by singer-songwriter Sebastian Davin's piano melodies, the album mixes sensitive-boy pleas with super-charged rockers. "This is heavier and harder than what I'm used to playing," says Maier, who joined the band a few months ago after drumming with locals Blue Vertaal and Blazer for the past couple of years. "But the energy just comes naturally when I'm playing."
