Premiere

Golden Daze – “Blue Bell” Video

Singer-songwriters Jacob Loeb and Ben Schwab formed Golden Days back in 2013. By 2016, they’d changed their name to Golden Daze and released their self-titled debut on Autumn Tone. Following US tours alongside artists like Woods, Whitney, and Twin Peaks, the LA-based duo is back today to announce their forthcoming follow-up Simpatico — out in February — and share lead single “Blue Bell.”

The album opener is coated in dreamy folk balladry, mutating the lo-fi gauze of their first record into a warmer, more mysterious brooding. It’s both aching and hopeful, and the lyrics feel well-suited for this current dark and bittersweet season. Loeb and Schwab sing in unison throughout the entire album. On “Blue Bell,” their voices meld together during the chorus’ lines: “And it feels like I fall for the first time/ And I feel so much younger as days go by.”
