Teen Daze

Vancouver-based Teen Daze has been making a splash as a newcomer in the chillwave pool. Much like Toro Y Moi and Washed Out, the project floats along as an electronic bedroom production focusing on vague lyrical content and looped, synth-heavy choruses. The debut EP, Four More Years, was recently released on Arcade Sound Ltd and has already drawn positive reviews.

Teen Daze's debut single "Shine on You Crazy White Cap" was leaked through a tumblr account and caught a lot of attention by the likes of XLR8R and many others. Remixes of songs by Twin Sister and Local Natives further showcase his ability to drown out vocals and build on a soft yet accessible pulsated dance beat. Paired with vintage visuals like the above, Teen Daze successfully taps a vein of nostalgia that makes for a perfectly spaced out trip back in time to who-knows-when.
