Tall Thief‘s “A Place I Know” was among my favorite tracks of 2020, and “Daydreaming” continues that quality, undoubtedly. Soaring vocals exude lyrical escapism amidst buzzing guitars to start, gearing toward a suavely melodic chorus that firmly hooks. The chorus’ galloping bass line and strong vocal lead converge amidst jangly guitars for a fully replay-inducing effect. A pulsing bridge, just prior to the three-minute mark, builds a satisfying finale. “Daydreaming” succeeds with a catchy, psych-filled sound — showing another surefire success from Tall Thief.
“Daydreaming” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2021’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
