CD Review (Single) – The Daydream District – Hello Sunshine

The Daydream District is a band from Raleigh, North Carolina that is equal parts hard and pop rock, “with a twist of lemon”, to quote the band. It blends quite esoteric, neurotic lyrics with catchy sing-along choruses, the band having very keen pop sensibilities stacked with revivalist 1990s rock stylings. It’s not too difficult to hear some 1960s styled psychedelia in the mix too. The group is the brainchild of husband and wife Scott and Jeni Ivey, who create a fluid brand of catchy pop rock that hints at bands like REM and Radiohead but allows a shadow of The Beatles to creep in. Hello Sunshine is a bright and breezy piece that swells and subsides throughout to a mellow ambient piano led peacefulness.
