Happy Friday one and all. Today's installment comes from experimental, yet ridiculously lush The Daydream Club. What makes Neon Love Song (Part II) rather special is its swirly musical imagery, which is dowsed in gorgeous strings and hypnotic vocals. The tune's even been picked up by Burberry's creative dude and included in their eyewear campaign, which is pretty ace. Something different for a lovely Friday afternoon? Indeed it is.

The Story

Adam Pickering and Paula Walker (The Daydream Club) met while studying at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) and released their debut album ‘Overgrown’ via their own label Poco Poco Records in November 2010.

Neon Love Song (Part II) is the third single from self-released duo The Daydream Club. While their debut album ‘Overgrown’ deliberately aimed to strip away production layers to focus on song-writing and acoustic instrumentation. This reworked version of the album favourite is a sign of things to come, with a fuller more epic sound, recalling the contemporary girl / boy harmonies of Slow Club, the delicate folk of Angus and Julia Stone and a nostalgic yearning for yesteryear Fleetwood Mac and The Carpenters.

This re-worked single version was recorded and mixed by Sam Bell (REM, Snow Patrol, Robbie Williams & Foals) and features a epic strings section including Elbow’s violinist and Lana Del Ray’s Cellist. The addition of strings and drums provides the perfect musical foil for the tracks lyrics “Ambience & power, power and grace.”

The single is backed by the original album version of the track, and the sparse near haunting Centaurs remix created by a member of hotly tipped Australian four-piece Blackchords, which The Daydream Club are offering to fans as a free download.
