Dead Lakes release their debut full-length album, daydreamer, via SharpTone Records.


The album starts off with the title track, daydreamer, an interlude that, if I was gonna describe it, sounds the way daydreaming feels like (if that even makes sense). The track then perfectly transitions into strange juice, a nice upbeat and drum-driven song. This album has me intrigued from the very beginning. It's very solid and put together, with every song transitioning into each other, thus making the listening experience even more incredible.

Taking the wheel and refusing to live their life in the rear-view mirror, it's this expansive, complicated, and sometimes painful process Dead Lakes channel into this debut album. daydreamer takes you on a journey and challenges you to take a chance on yourself in the name of personal discovery.

Speaking on the album, vocalist Sumy says: "This record constantly blurs the line between reality and daydream both sonically and lyrically. We wanted to extend that energy to this record by giving you a mix of what you'd expect from us with a surreal fresh energy and perspective. The result ended up being a sonic journey of sound and emotion. This record runs parallel with the ride of life. The gut-wrenching moments, self-doubt, relationships, vices, and the feeling of euphoria."

In addition to the brand new album, the band has also released a music video for quicksand. Watch it here.

"Buckle up daydreamer, this isn't exactly a joyride."
