London purveyors of rootsy rock n’ roll LASHES are back today with their new retro-rock single Daydreamer. The new track offers up Stonesy guitar riffs, soulful vocals and vintage country-rock vibes alongside the band’s youthful energy and love of classic rock n’ roll.
Fans of 90s rockers like The Black Crowes and more contemporary bands like A Thousand Horses and Whiskey Myers will find plenty to enjoy here.
“Daydreamer is gratitude,” explains frontman Harry White. “The whole theme is about being grateful for what you’ve got in your life right now. But the story told is one you can interpret however you want – you can take the lyrics and apply them to yourself however you like. The song was born out of nowhere and very quickly. Three chords, ramblings of truth and 10 minutes gave us Daydreamer. And that reflects the song. Don’t dwell on things, don’t overwork it and take time to daydream in your own little world.”
Influenced by 70s rock n’ roll icons The Faces, Bob Dylan and The Band, LASHES aim to bring new energy to the genre along with their own distinctive personalities and melodies. Named after a night out on ‘the lash’, these four London lads are a throwback to when rock bands could play all night, party until the morning and then get up to do it all over again. As part of a rising movement of young rock bands taking up the mantle from their ageing heroes, LASHES will be releasing new music and playing live throughout 2019.
