THE DAYDREAM CLUB’S NEW SINGLE NEON LOVE SONG (PART II) IS FEATURED IN THE NEW BURBERRY SUMMER 2012 EYEWEAR CAMPAIGN
The Daydream Club’s new single Neon Love Song (Part II) has been hand selected by Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey to be part of the new Summer 2012 Eyewear campaign alongside a cast of other British Musicians including Life In Film, Marika Hackman and One Night Only.
Neon Love Song (Part II) is the third single from the self-released duo. While The Daydream Club’s 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.
The campaign, which launched on April 4th will be revealed throughout April. All the tracks were recorded exclusively for Burberry with stunning accompanying music videos filmed on set in London.
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.
Their debut single, a limited edition 7" vinyl 'The Record Shop' was released to coincide with Record Store Day 2011, and quickly caught the attention of BBC radio Nottingham and Tom Robinson at BB6 Music. Second single On The Move (Part II) caught the imagination of music bloggers and radio stations alike in part due to it’s highly imaginative and insanely cute ‘backwards’ music video. Tom Robinson described the track as “Mesmerising” Dean Jackson BBC Nottingham called it “Hypnotic” and music blog Audio Scribbler called The Daydream Club "Our finest find of 2012 so far.”
The Daydream Club have become a fixture on the MySpace folk charts frequently outperforming major label artists including Mumford & Sons, while the duo’s appearance on the Burberry Acoustic programme generated over 100,000 views despite no formal PR support.
The Daydream Club have a growing reputation as taste makers, they create monthly playlists, have curated their own new music Podcast, and released ‘The Night’ Remix EP which saw them take on three new artists: Tigers That Talked, Blackchords & Coockoo. When asked to choose their favourite music of 2011 for The Right Chord Music blog, the article generated a staggering 60,000 views in just 48hours.
