Dreamy Reverie: Lilac Haze’s ‘Daisy Girl’ Signals Dream Pop Bliss
Prepare to be enraptured by the ethereal sounds of Bath’s dream pop luminary, Lilac Haze, as she returns with her single, ‘Daisy Girl’. This enchanting track is a tantalizing preview of what’s to come, as Lilac Haze gears up for the launch of her debut EP later this year.
Lilac Haze, the brainchild of Bath-based songwriter Katrina Swift, emerges from the mists of inspiration, conjuring the spirits of ’80s and ’90s music luminaries. Drawing influence from the likes of The Cure, All About Eve, Eva Cassidy, and Fleetwood Mac, Swift weaves a sonic tapestry that marries atmospheric, ethereal textures with a poignant dose of nostalgic romance.
This latest offering follows in the footsteps of her debut double singles, ‘The Ghost That I Once Knew’ and ‘Lilac Haze,’ which garnered acclaim from discerning ears at RTE, Music Daily, and Noctis Magazine. ‘Daisy Girl’ is a testament to Lilac Haze’s artistic evolution, co-produced with the skilful touch of Calum Wotherspoon (of Nightswimming fame) at Joe’s Garage in Bristol, and masterfully fine-tuned by none other than Adam Ayan (known for his work with Paul McCartney, Lana Del Ray, and Carrie Underwood). On this musical journey, Lilac Haze collaborates with guitarist Dylan Osafo and drummer Callum Maloney, each adding their unique magic to the track.
With a rich background performing across the United States and Europe, fronting ensembles and orchestras, Lilac Haze brings a classically trained, high, and gentle voice to the forefront. Her vocals, like a gentle zephyr, gracefully ascend above lush guitar lines, rhythmic drums, and delicate synths, creating a sonic tableau that’s nothing short of breathtaking.
As for the inspiration behind ‘Daisy Girl,’ Lilac Haze shares, “We all have a little ‘daisy girl’ within us, urging us to embrace the unknown with an open heart and seize the chance for happiness without succumbing to fear. I wrote this song as an ode to the pursuit of new relationships with unabashed courage. While crafting this sweet treat, we had a blast experimenting with various guitar sounds, infusing the track with an irresistible charm.”
Get ready to be transported into the dreamy, nostalgia-tinged realm of Lilac Haze’s ‘Daisy Girl.’ It’s a musical journey that promises to be as sweet as it is irresistible, a testament to the boundless creativity of this emerging dream pop virtuoso.
