Day & Dream is an indie rock dream pop shoegaze band hailing from Asheville, North Carolina.
Long time artists, musicians and singer/songwriters, Peter Frizzante and Abby Amaya, initially met in New York City, but didn't start a band together until they moved to Asheville. Abby’s roots are in California 60s coastal pop, while Peter’s is post-punk grit. Working together, the now husband and wife team showcase their admiration for sonic landscapes, fuzzy guitars, and melodic pop structures. Reverb soaked and layered with soft whispery vocals, the result is an energetic and memorable reverie.
Peter, the morning person, and Abby, the night owl -- their band name is a nod to their opposite sleep schedules. The pair is often writing music or lyrics at home in between work and daily chores, finding inspiration in personal relationships, nature, and risk-taking.
The band has played with many different local drummers and bass players. Day & Dream's first single, “Nocturnal Creatures” was recorded at El Rancho Morbido Studios in Black Mountain, NC and debuted in July of 2018. This was soon followed by their first full length album, “With Every Breath You Die” recorded at Standard Electric Studios in Atlanta, GA, with Engineer Damon Moon, released in February of 2019.
They went back to the studio in July of 2019 to record new tracks at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC. The singles were engineered by Kenny Harrington, and mastered by Jason NeSmith of Chase Park Transduction Studios in Athens, GA. These tunes were released in August 2019 and December 2019. In January of 2020, the band returned to Echo Mountain Studios to record their latest single, "A Study in the Pixels of Your Face," which was mastered by Geoff Pesche at world renowned Abbey Road Studios in London.
After canceling most shows booked for 2020, including a stop at Austin's SXSW, the band is currently busy doing live streams, shooting music videos, writing and recording new music, and planning their next tour once things open up again.
