Following on from her recent performances at London’s
esteemed venues The Lexington and Sebright Arms, NME100 artist Honey Gentry will be releasing her euphoric and
soul-stirring new single ‘Daydream Baby’
on Friday June 14th. ‘Daydream Baby’
delivers a story of heartbreak and betrayal atop driving acoustic and
shimmering vintage electric guitar, where tinges of Americana marry
idiosyncratic art pop in Gentry’s most impressive and artistic work to date.
‘Daydream Baby’ is the first single taken from the
London maven’s upcoming second EP Dreamlover expected July 2019, and
is a reflection on dealing with a painful experience by turning it into legend
– daydreaming not only about the lover but the way the relationship ends.
Gentry applies her signature reflective rose-tinted lyrical style in order to
separate the listener from the raw, honest pain of a messy, human breakup. “By
acting out a breakup, it’s like you’re acting it out in a movie.” she offers on
the single. ‘Daydream Baby’ takes inspiration from songs of the 1960s such as
Barbara Lewis’ ‘Baby I’m Yours’ and Skeeter Davis’ ‘End of the World’; songs
that address very real human emotion and pain via dramatic metaphors evoking
destruction and termination.
‘Daydream Baby’ was produced by Gentry’s long-standing
collaborator Ruben Elbrond-Palmer and will make its on air debut on NME Radio.
