The Daydreamers are an act that attempt to forge their own bold path in music. With Your Love is their new effort, and each of the efforts on this release are integral for understanding the act. Antarctica starts off things; the pop meets rock sound of the track allows listeners to get on board. As listeners become familiar with the work of The Daydreamers, the act’s efforts begin to stretch their wings. Underneath (Lucid Dreams) is a stark track that nevertheless presents listeners with a tremendously dense and detailed narrative.
The End bounces listeners into a bold new world, as the act slips in tremendously smooth R&B to their wind-swept surf / indie sound. The presence of The End allows the band further room to expand their sound. Category VI is a track that can be taken differently dependent on how one hears the track. There is a very somber and hurt feeling that is threaded through the track that stands at odds with a much more introspective set of arrangements. With Your Love ends with Ain’t Turning Around, a track that showcases the band’s confidence. This confidence is poorly founded in many titles, but The Daydreamers have the chops necessary to back this statement up.
The songs on With Your Love can be enjoyed as singles, but I believe that there is a certain narrative that is established throughout the runtime of the album. Few acts are able to make a cogent statement with the EP format, but I believe that The Daydreamers capture the mind and hearts of their listeners on With Your Love.
