Datura Daydream Drop Deadly Dramatic Debut

 When I first listened to Payday off the upcoming album, The Lick Is In The Lisp by Datura Daydream, I really had no idea what to expect or think. However, the Toronto based three piece band has completely blown me away with this amazing (mostly) instrumental track. Payday starts off slow with a super funky bass riff and a catchy drum beat that justs flow so perfectly in sync. Distorted and screechy guitars transition the song through its middle, accented by the song’s few ambient lyrics, and then wraps up with a mellow groove that I still have stuck in my head. Then there’s the video, which you need to see to truly appreciate the song, as it syncs perfectly with theme and feel. Hands down, Datura Daydream is one of the acts I’m definitely keeping my eye on in the upcoming year. Make sure to get your hands on Datura Daydream’s new album, which drops on December 12 with a release party at the Holy Oak, along with guests Love McPherson, We Were Heads, and HAMS.
