Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 album from the New York-based Indie Rock trio. After playing in bands together in Chapel Hill, NC, they came together post-relocation in 2011. As Daytona, the members reach out in some new directions, with looping finger-picked guitars setting a groundwork for sprawling harmonies over often hypnotic beats. They draw inspiration from a wide range of American Folk music, Classic Rock, and African and Caribbean sounds and rhythms, but the final result is a refined hook-driven style of pop music complemented by smart lyrics and positive musical passages. At their core, Daytona's songs tread the fine line between the exuberant and the melancholic, dealing with the familiar themes of uncertainty, love, the desire to move and the importance of staying put. The album was recorded in North Carolina by Ari Picker (Lost in the Trees) and mixed by Matt Boynton (MGMT, Hospitality) at Vacation Island in Brooklyn, NY.
