"Riotous garage-rock rapscallions - THE DAZE"
In 2022 they won the under 18's Cambridge Band Comp resulting them playing at The Junction and Strawberry Fair. They were nominated for the Kimberly Rae Songwriting Comp by the judges for their new song 'Entitled'.
Judge Mark - "its a rap punk cross with a Hawkwind feel; incredible."
In 2020, The Daze got through to the final of BurySOUND -
"The first to progress to the final were THE DAZE. Punk rock reinvented. A young band with an awkwardness about them that makes you feel slightly uncomfortable but it suited their punk rawness. These guys were full of high energy angst with real rebelliousness. A diruptive enery filled the room which you couldnt take your eyes off. Thier sound was fantastic and I liked the way the singers took it in turns to lead a song, it really worked and Flo added a uniqueness. It was like seeing something special for the first time."
