Daydream Frenzy’s new offering is a perfectly crafted alt-rock track, carrying spirited instrumentals and indie style vocals with an overall shimmering authenticity that is truly feel-good. Don Barclay’s revival of the band is an exciting prospect, and his hunt for additional band members is something to keep an eye on.
Discussing the journey of the band thus far, Don said: “I haven’t recorded with a band in over 3 years so I was super excited at the thought of giving this a go. It flowed so easily. I recorded this with Oz Craggs at Hiddentrack Studios in Folkestone. I currently don’t have a band line up so this whole new Daydream Frenzy single song is just me. We had to stop this band in June 2018 as I moved down to South East England from Aberdeenshire. I decided to venture into solo work rather than start up a band again. After a few years I’ve realised I really miss that big Rock sound and had to get back into a studio to record a song of that nature.”
And commenting on the sentiment behind the new track, he said: “The song lyrically encapsulates the last 3 years of my life. I have had a beautiful baby daughter who is now 3, moved to England, been through a breakup, started a new job and ended up living by the beach. It is crazy what can happen but I’ve always wanted to push forward in what I do and that is where ‘Nowhere I’d Rather Be’ came from. This is the happiest song I’ve written in a long time!”
With exciting plans in the works, Don Barclay’s restoration of Daydream Frenzy’s warm, distinct sound is surely welcomed with open arms.
