Daytona are a young Brooklyn indie rock trio whose members boast backgrounds in notably boisterous acts Harlem and Wild Yaks. Think of this project as an antidote to the late night parties and wild shredding found in those bands. Through gentle melodies, Daytona produce pop jams that ably alternate between cheery or melancholy from moment to moment. The guys stopped by the studio to share some songs from their EP and to discuss the challenges of picking a band name.
Featured song: “You’re In Beijing”
The band’s Storm So Long EP is available now.
