Toronto duo East of Avenue debuted their brand new music video for their single The Last of the Daydreamers via Live in Limbo last week. The single comes off the duo’s upcoming full-length album, which is set for release later in the year through Fifth Kid Records.
The band spoke a little bit about the inspiration behind both the track and the video:
We both grew up playing in bands all throughout high school. It was a different time. No cellphones, limited internet, and the only way to advertise our shows was posting flyers on street poles. We were dreamers. And we did it without any technology. This song and video is our journey through those golden years. The video profiles all the ‘daydreamers’, the artists and creative minds in our city that keep that spirit alive. As well as original footage from our own childhood.”
You can listen to The Last of the Daydreamers on Spotify or purchase it straight off iTunes here.

Born and raised in MTL, I spent most of my teens and early 20’s working in the music industry. I made the permanent move to Toronto in 2013 where I joined the team at the Canadian Independent Music Association as the Music Export Assistant. I spend my days working with and promoting incredible indie Canadian artists and companies across the world.
Music journalism and photography have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, as I jumped on board Confront Magazine a few years after it formed and ran it as the Editor-in-Chief for 7 years, right up until its recent closure.
I love to spend my spare time running to and from concerts, cheering on my hockey team (Go Habs!) and getting lost in nature whenever I can.
