about

What inspired the song?

Daydreaming was inspired by a cold winter, bad news, and the longing for something warm, wholesome and safe - like the love you find in a new and exciting relationship.

Who produced it? What was the recording experience like?

Daydreaming was recorded at Hipposonic Studios in Vancouver, BC, and was produced by the extremely rad Howard Redekopp. We had a great time laying this tune to tape, recording all of the bed tracks together simultaneously. We were going for a 70's, summer rock n roll, vibe and wanted that to come across in all of the tones.

What do you want people to take away from the song?

We just want this one to be a feel good rock song that makes people think of warm weather and watching the sun come up with ones you love.

Was there a particular mood you were trying to capture? A story you were trying to tell?

We wanted the song to have a relaxed rock n roll vibe - something that keeps your toes tapping without being a full on "rager". The story is pretty straight forward - daydreaming about simpler things while the world unfolds around you.

Anything else noteworthy?

The song will be accompanied by an outrageous and very cool music video that was created by Amazing Factory, and is starring Matt Clarke.

lyrics

SITTING HERE STIRRING MY HEART UP
WITH A GREASY SPOON
SPENDING ALL MY MONEY
ON MY FADING YOUTH
WHAT A TIME WHAT A TIME WHAT A TIME
TO TRY SOMETHING NEW
A SIGN OF THE TIMES

I’D RATHER BE DREAMING
DREAMING OF YOU
ID RATHER BE DAY, DAY, DAY
DAYDREAMING OF YOU

GUESS I GOT A LITTLE EXCITED
WITH SOMETHING NEW
I TRY TO PLAY MY CARDS RIGHT
BUT NEVER DO

WHAT A TIME WHAT A TIME WHAT A TIME
TO TRY SOMETHING NEW
A SIGN OF THE TIMES

I’D RATHER BE DREAMING
DREAMING OF YOU
I’D RATHER BE DAYDREAMING OF YOU BABE
I’D RATHER BE DREAMING
DREAMING OF YOU
I’D RATHER BE DAY, DAY, DAY
DAYDREAMING OF YOU

A LITTLE LESS CREAM IN MY COFFEE
THAN I USED TO DO
GETTING SICK OF ALL THE BULLSHIT
ON THE EVENING NEWS
WHAT A TIME WHAT A TIME WHAT A TIME
TO TRY SOMETHING NEW
A SIGN OF THE TIMES

I’D RATHER BE DREAMING
DREAMING OF YOU
I’D RATHER BE DAYDREAMING OF YOU BABE
I’D RATHER BE DREAMING
DREAMING OF YOU

I WOULD RATHER BE DREAMING
I WOULD RATHER BE DREAMING

DAY DREAMING OF YOU
I’D RATHER BE
DAY DREAMING OF YOU
I’D RATHER BE
DAY DREAMING OF YOU
I’D RATHER BE
DAY, DAY, DAY
I’D RATHER BE
DAY, DAY, DAY
DAYDREAMING OF YOU
