News on Daydream Vacation:
After a performance together at 2011's Sasquatch Festival, Dave Einmo (mastermind behind Head Like A Kite) and Asya of the band Smoosh, formed their new group Daydream Vacation. Combining Head Like a Kite's genre-bending-electro-party with Smoosh's indie-dream-pop brings us Daydream Vacation, entering the studio to finish mixing the debut album, "Dare Seize the Fire," with your support.
Dave Einmo and Asya have known each other for several years. Einmo released the 1st Smoosh album on his small record label, Pattern 25, before Smoosh moved over to Barsuk (when Asya was only 14). Asya has appeared on tracks from multiple HLAK releases, and made rare live appearances on tour with HLAK.
As Dave and Asya discussed collaborating for a new HLAK single, the song prompted the creation of a new band, with Dave as the mad-scientist producer and multi-instumentalist and Asya as the lead vocalist. They took the band name Daydream Vacation from the title of one of the first songs they collaborated on together.
Combined, their projects (Head Like a Kite and Smoosh) have received praise from Rolling Stone, MTV, LA Times, London Times, Pitchfork, Spin, Magnet and many more. They have appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, MTV, and toured with and opened for Death Cab for Cutie, TV On the Radio, Pearl Jam, Neon Trees, Dresden Dolls, The Eels, Tokyo Police Club, Cat Power, Sufjan Stevens, Jimmy Eat World, among others.
This winter they enter the studio to finish mixing the full-length Daydream Vacation debut, "Dare Seize the Fire," with your support.
