“Living Days kind of scared my pants off (you'll know when you see the photos). The music is electro-pop-meets-insane-garage-rock-party. Smoke machine, flower arrangements strewn all over the stage, and a frontwoman to die for, this band knows how to sell the whole package.”
“Brooklyn's Living Days and their mesmerizing frontwoman Stephonik Youth channel the lust and danger, and yes, the synths and knack for unforgettable melody that made '80s new wave so irresistible and give it a gritty, thoroughly modern makeover”
“Remember Berlin? Gary Numan? Missing Persons? Well, if not, don’t sweat it because Living Days has distilled everything great about those bands into one potent synth-driven cocktail, complete with vaguely dangerous, yet undeniably charismatic frontwoman”

“The strangest act on the line up must be the relatively straightforward new-wave act Living Days, whose polished, professional sound seems to have arrived on the scene fully formed.”
“And then there's this singer called Stephonik Youth. She's so amazing. She literally, (sic) I think she's the most amazing artist I've ever seen. And her voice is incredible”.
—Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes) for Pitchfork
Rather than simply rehash a decade of pop music history, Living Days have instead applied their influences as the blueprint for a set of songs that is thrilling, invigorating, and surprisingly innovative. Make Out Room, Vol. 1 captures all the youthful appeal of its ’80s predecessors in a glamorous, almost dangerous fashion and should stand the test of time regardless of musical era.
