Before We Knew-[Day Wave]

I wrote “Before We Knew” last fall after taking a long break from writing songs. When I sat down to create again, I knew I wanted to let go of my old process, I wanted to make music feel fresh for myself again. It was scary abandoning an approach that felt right in the past, but finding my footing with a new writing process was really rewarding. When I finally let go of what I thought I was supposed to be making, this song just came to me” – Day Wave

Oakland native Day Wave makes his Lyrical Lemonade debut with a sleek alt-rock anthem titled “Before We Knew.” Accompanied by a Jason Lester directed visual, the song is guitar-heavy with periodic vocal pauses to emphasize the breathtaking instrumentation. The melody is quite mellow, which is matched by Day Wave’s relaxed vocals. As a result, the record contains plenty of sing-along qualities; each lyric is sung equally to bring the track’s message to life. Moreover, the isolated desert location is a fitting choice for the music video, since “Before We Knew” is an excellent offering to meditate to while sitting alone in silence. Watch and listen below!
