New Zealand born, Sydney based singer and songwriter, Lauren Day, has announced the release of her new self-titled debut EP Lauren Day, available today.
The highly-anticipated EP is made up of three tracks: Summer Lover, a dreamy, indie-pop song produced by Xavier Dunn, about a summer romance which evokes a warm and nostalgic feeling for the listener through the vinyl crackle and harp, accompanied by dreamy harmonies; On & On, a 90’s inspired production by Matt Hurt which references pushing through self-doubt and re-igniting your passions and the final track, Cala Gonone Nights, a cool, feel-good summer song inspired by long, balmy European summers, produced by Alex Preston and featuring live guitar and saxophone samples set to put anybody in a good mood.
Lauren grew up in Wellington, New Zealand and has always loved music and singing. Since moving to Sydney, Lauren has recorded seven tracks and produced six music videos as an independent artist, working with some of Sydney’s upcoming talents to bring her visions to life. Her music encompasses smooth, soulful vocals and contagious hooks, combined with effortless delivery through dreamy, chilled out, lo-fi pop with RnB and neo soul influences. Through her music, Lauren sings about love, nostalgic romances, chasing summer, emotional struggles and relationships aiming to empower her female listeners.
“I wanted to create music that was uplifting but also easy listening. I wanted the songs to spark a memory whether it be about a holiday or summer with friends to that feeling of over-coming a hard time.
I’m really attracted to dreamy, whimsical sounds so when I wrote the songs I had used a lot of bells/marimba type sounds that we then replaced with instruments like the harp and saxophone in production. At the time of recording the EP, I had just returned from an amazing summer holiday and was about to get married which is why two of the songs are very summery and reflect on love,” says, Lauren.
On & On was written about a personal breakthrough I had in my music and my self-confidence to stop doubting myself and take time to discover who I am. The repetition in the chorus of the lyrics “on and on, and on and on” really represents the slow process of working through challenges day by day.”
