Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
We’re The Day Dreamers, a female-fronted indie-rock band from Montreal. We’ve just released our second album titled “Forever Again” on August 9, 2019, which was a huge passion project we had been working on for the last three years.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
When we first started writing music 6 years ago, we knew we wanted our songs to focus on the ethereal beauty of three-part vocal harmonies. Although our music has evolved and matured throughout the years, our love for those vocal harmonies has remained a staple of our sound. Many of our tracks also feature the use of orchestral arrangements including classical violin solos, and a melodic rhythm section. Lyrically, we love to write about our personal experiences or provide our perspective of the world at this point in our lives. Songwriting is a collaborative effort, with everyone contributing either lyrically or musically. Our sound is a melting pot of styles, where you can hear elements of each member’s individual influences from jazz to pop, classic rock to classical violin, and disco to folk.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We’re in the process of wrapping up our summer tour which was promoting our new album “Forever Again” with our last show on August 30th, however, we’ll be visiting more Canadian cities in the near future, so for those who want to check us out live, stay tuned to our social media. In our live shows, you can look forward to hearing the harmonies we’re known for. We love creating sound experiences with tender moments of musical bliss and highlights of vigour. We want the audience to feel as though they’re in a dream with us being carried away, and we want to take you for a journey.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Our song Fall Apart is a great track to give you a taste of what we’re all about. You can enjoy the soulful and powerful harmonies we love to create and experience a dynamic musical arrangement that is sure to move your soul.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
