Austin, Texas native Dayglow has just released his brand new singe, “Deep End,” today. The track will appear on his upcoming album, People In Motion, which is due out October 7th via AWAL.
“Deep End” is a song driven by feel good, infectious synths, and is as a refreshing dreamy-pop track that serves as a reminder to take risks. Dayglow has mastered the art of delivering cathartic music that resonates with the masses, wrapped in a shell of punchy hooks and catchy melodies.
Expanding on the single, Dayglow says “Making Deep End was a really revitalizing experience for me. I had just gotten a vintage synth called an Oberheim Matrix 6 and was just having fun messing with the sounds it could make. I wasn’t giving myself any restrictions or confines of what “sound” I was going for. I was just using my imagination and trying to make something that felt good and free.
The base of the song is like 3 different patches that I recorded that day. It felt clean and poppy yet really raw in a strange way. I love electronic/dance music that feels “human” and “alive”— It’s such a treacherous challenge to accomplish; yet I feel like this song made the magic happen, and opened a door to the world that would become People in Motion.
Deep End has a really clear and colorful visual palette in my mind when listening to it. I wanted to make a wild and kaleidoscopic visual that just simply felt fun. The song mentions “flowing water”, so I wanted to symbolize that in the animation with a fluid and watery style.
Making this song (and this whole record) was a new and freeing experience for me. I didn’t give myself any “creative limitations”, and really didn’t try to have many outside references for it. I just wanted to make a raw and honest, yet very polished and danc-y record. I’m still making all of these songs by myself in a spare bedroom in my house, yet something about this album just feels bigger than me and so expansive in a creative sense. Deep End is a great example of that feeling to me.”
