Day & Dream
Long time artists, musicians and singer/songwriters, Peter Frizzante and Abby Amaya, initially met in New York City, but didn’t start a band together until they moved to Asheville. Abby’s roots are in California 60s coastal pop, while Peter’s is post-punk grit. Working together, the now husband and wife team showcase their admiration for sonic landscapes, fuzzy guitars, and melodic pop structures. Reverb soaked and layered with soft whispery vocals, the result is an energetic and memorable reverie. Peter, the morning person, and Abby, the night owl — their band name is a nod to their opposite sleep schedules. The pair is often writing music or lyrics at home in between work and daily chores, finding inspiration in personal relationships, nature, and risk-taking.
“Beginning with dreamy guitar arpeggios, the track hugs the line between jazzy indie rock and 70s-inspired dream pop. The breathy female vocals are reminiscent of Lush or Mazzy Star but the guitars sound more like modern dream pop bands like Real Estate.” ~ Adam Morgan, StGA
“Their stuff is so pretty. This is shoegaze: it goes on and on, and the colors all fade into each other, and we’re dreaming.” ~ Holy Crap Records
“The album shows some contemplative pieces, like “Forest Fire” and its twangy Twin Peaks vibes, though “Night Lights” stands out particularly as being a full-bodied representation of the group’s sound. A hypnotic percussive pulse accompanies textured guitars and dreamy vocals, certainly showing why Day & Dream have been compared to the likes of Stereolab, Warpaint, and The Sundays.” ~ Obscure Sound
With her enchanting voice layered on experimental alternative beats, Alo Ver hypnotizes listeners and compels them to explore what is beyond the expected with her lyrics about humanity, spirituality and love. Her debut album is a collection of seven songs shaped by influences like Sylvan Esso and Flying Lotus with a chilling yet colorful soundscape and unique beats to dance along to. Alo plays the banjo and combines traditional folky elements with electronic, psycheldic sounds to create music that is new to the world.
