"Genuinely blown away by the new interpretation of Neon Love Song... It's amazing!" LEICESTER FRINGE FESTIVAL
“Flipping heck, this looks and sounds incredible” THE BEAT, BBC
[Featured in the Burberry Summer 2012 Eyewear Campaign]
Neon Love Song is the third single from the self-released duo. While The Daydream Club’s debut album ‘Overgrown’ deliberately aimed to strip away production layers to focus on song-writing and acoustic instrumentation. This reworked version of the album favourite is a sign of things to come, with a fuller more epic sound, recalling the contemporary girl / boy harmonies of Slow Club, the delicate folk of Angus and Julia Stone and a nostalgic yearning for yesteryear Fleetwood Mac and The Carpenters.
Neon Love Song (Part II) was hand selected by Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey to be part of the new Summer 2012 Eyewear campaign alongside a cast of other British Musicians including Life In Film, Marika Hackman and One Night Only. All the tracks were recorded exclusively for Burberry with stunning accompanying music videos filmed on set in London.

This re-worked single version was mixed and mastered by Sam Bell (REM, Snow Patrol, Robbie Williams & Foals) and features an epic strings section including Elbow’s violinist and Lana Del Ray’s Cellist. The addition of strings and drums provides the perfect musical foil for the tracks lyrics “Ambience & power, power and grace.”
The single is backed by the original album version of the track, and a sparse near haunting Centaurs remix created by a member of hotly tipped Australian four-piece Blackchords, which The Daydream Club are offering to fans as a free download.
