American duo Day & Dream deliver a dreamgaze reverie on 'Hidden Cinema'
Words: Sam Geary
Peter Frizzante and Abby Amaya, the Asheville, North Carolina-based duo known as Day & Dream, share their latest track, 'Hidden Cinema'.
Coming after their debut album, 'With Every Breath You Die', released earlier in the year, 'Hidden Cinema' builds on their combining of indie-rock and dreamgaze, fusing reverb with layered, soft vocals, and electronic beats for a gentle, evocative meander.
"Abby actually said this phrase aloud watching Wheel of Fortune, the answer ended up being hidden camera, not hidden cinema but the words stuck with her," explains Peter. "The song is inspired by my love of the bands, Melody’s Echo Chamber and Broadcast, as well as old noir movies, and French things in general. The words are about well kept secrets, and about things that can’t be seen that should be seen."
