With a name like Teen Daze, we can already assume a lot. The play of words will probably leave many people believing that the music is hazy, nostalgic, and youthful. In the case of Vancouver's Teen Daze, these people would be absolutely right. Teen Daze has been one of the better dreamscape artists to come out with an EP this year, his quality and purpose much more defined than others who have released stuff similar to his. I guess this shouldn't be a surprise, with such a band name the intention of the music is pretty clear....just as it might be pretty easy to guess what kind of music a band like Septic Flesh would play. Also, Daze's EP Four More Years was well-planned, being released July 27th near the peak of summer, a perfect time for a college student like me to pick it up and give it a listen. Since this, Teen Daze has gone through a decent run of song remixes (remixing such bands as Twin Sister, Young Man, and Local Natives), collaborations (with bands like Houses), and as of a few days ago, has a new single. It's called "Watch Over Me", and it's got all the goods that helped launch his previous works: dream synths, soothing vocals, and a call to the teen days. I've posted "Watch Over Me" below, along with "Four More Years" from the EP.
