The Daylight Orange
THE DAYLIGHT ORANGE are Analog Psychedelic Pop destroyers whose itchy grooves get under your skin like a good carpet burn.
“Bet that’s woken you up hasn’t it? You look at it as a WAV form and it’s a brick, there’s no let up. Devon born with Cornish blood living on bar stools & beaches. Absolutely brilliant.” - Sarah Gosling BBC Introducing
With the stoner pop sensibility of irreverent sonic experimentalists, The Daylight Orange pillage and recycle Spiritualized, Duran Duran, Soulwax, Muddy Waters and Sam Cooke with Charles Bukowski, to create loud noises and irresistible hooks.
The Daylight Orange started in the back room of the Exeter pub run by brothers Dan and Matt Sandford, where their experiments with sound on their early demos caught the attention of Drummer Andy Watts, who had toured the world and played on top 10 singles with The Seahorses. The trio of seasoned musical travellers set up shop and started recording at the Phoenix in Exeter with the mantra of trying to connect the dots between 60s psychedelia, 70s bar soaked blues, 80s basslines and 90s indie/rock.
I think it’s got a proper Stone Roses vibe to it and a dash of Smashing Pumpkins, a bit of Glitch Mob and Beatles Number 9...you know which bit i mean. It’s fantastic!” - Sarah Gosling, BBC Introducing.
