‘summer’s end’ by dayaway | New EP, ‘dayaway’
Today, NYC-based dream pop band dayaway (mem. CLAVVS) finally share their brand new self-titled debut EP (out today via all DSPS), alongside its final single, ‘summer’s end’.
“‘summer’s end’ is the final song on the EP, and it’s essentially a goodbye. It’s about finding peace with change and being grateful for fleeting moments, even while you’re sad to let them go. The video is meant to capture summer in New York. It’s like a retrospective of summer memories and all the things we love here”.
On their brand new EP, the band wrote:
“This project started as a sort of accident. I was sitting on the beach on a late summer day in 2018 when I felt compelled to start writing these summertime love songs. They came to me so quickly and all at once. These are vignettes of love and loss from my imagination and my life. They’re meant to capture the feelings of summertime, from the hot blue euphoria to the hazy golden sadness. On one level, they’re simple love songs, but there’s also something a little deeper about growing up and saying goodbye”.
Reminiscent of acts like Tennis and Hatchie, dayaway’s nostalgic songs float over a bed of hazy guitars, wavy, psychedelic synths and dusty drums. Drawing influence from 90s and 00s indie like Rilo Kiley, Beach House, and Washed Out, dayaway blends elements of indie pop with chillwave and dream pop.
