Dayglow returns with a new single “Deep End”, lifted off his forthcoming album ‘People in Motion’, due out October 7th on AWAL.
Feel-good, infectious synths lay the groundwork for “Deep End”, a refreshing dreamy-pop track that serves as a reminder to take risks— jump into the deep end and trust the process. In an era of music when most songs take a team of co-writers and producers to create, Dayglow’s music remains uniquely Sloan’s– created solely by him. Dayglow has mastered the art of delivering cathartic music that resonates with the masses, wrapped in a shell of punchy hooks and catchy melodies.
Dayglow shares, “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. ‘Deep End’ 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. I didn’t give myself any creative limitation, and really didn’t try to have many outside references for it. 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.”
The 10 tracks that craft ‘People In Motion’, conceptualized, written, played, and produced by Sloan Struble, are delightfully pure, hyper-melodic manifestations of Sloan’s desire to steer clear of conflict or drama and offer someone something to love. But ‘People in Motion’ isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. There is a depth to Dayglow here, a real sense that Sloan has faced obstacles of his own and chosen to stand atop them. “I make music because I love making it,” shared Sloan. “I just love recording and producing.” That is the inarguable takeaway of ‘People in Motion’, a record about finding something you love and singing about it out loud.
Since Dayglow burst onto the scene, Sloan Struble has toured the globe—selling out his North American headline tour, a slew of UK/EU dates, and has graced festival stages including Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo. He has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, as well as the iconic Austin City Limits on PBS, a highlight for the Austin native.
Fans around the world haven’t just come out for the shows but they’ve listened and streamed and streamed, more than a billion times in fact. His debut hit “Can I Call You Tonight”, from his debut record ‘Fuzzybrain’, not only went Platinum but was also 2020’s biggest independent Alternative Hit. Its official video has become a favourite on YouTube, sparking a wave of fan-made spin offs and exceeded over 91 million views. Dayglow’s sophomore album ‘Harmony House’ did not disappoint either–with its hard-won and palpable sincerity, it garnered wide acclaim from the likes of Billboard, NPR, Ones to Watch, The Talkhouse, and NME.
