Introducing: Golden Daze

Golden DazeLos Angeles-based duo Golden Daze offer an intoxicating mix of dew-soaked melodies and psychedelic shimmers.

Formed by songwriters and friends, Ben Schwab and Jacob Loeb recently released their second album Simpatico via Autumn Tone, but remain under the radar this side of the pond. Their music is a liquid dive into a deep indigo pool, oftentimes reminiscent of bands like Broken Bells; passing through waves of technicolor, hazy folk that makes it easy to get lost in each carefully arranged piece.

Standout single “Took a Fall” encapsulates a submarine ride through a 60s fuelled daydream. Glistening guitar chords punctuate the background while a warm, round lead melody dances between each vocal sequence. There’s an upbeat jaunt that commands the foot to tap while sunbeams part grey skies.

Golden Daze also channel bands like Real Estate while creating this laid back amalgamation of sounds. Best listened to in a local coffee shop, on a long road trip with a clear sky, or in the background during quiet meditation; Simpatico passes through a variation of lo fi and psych folk, but the roots stay true to the bedroom scene that bore Golden Daze.
