The Day Short Info

Resident in two countries, Laura Loeters from Utrecht/Netherlands and the Hamburg based Gregor Sonnenberg are used to being on the road permanently with their band THE DAY. To travel, stay in motion, to work together from constantly changing points.

Since meeting at „Hogeschool voor de kunsten“ in Arnhem the two keep reconciling distances, differences and always new approaches and perspectives. What runs like a thread through all of this is the interest to take charge of things themselves, try out and grow on it together.

On stage The Day is a real 3-piece live band: drums, bass, guitar. The warm exciting guitar layers might be reminiscent of bands like Explosions in the Sky. The chorussy bass guitar playing of Laura adds this strong shoegaze edge topped by her lush vocals drowned in reverb giving The Day its dream pop sound. Next to their own shows at festivals and clubs all over Germany and the Netherlands most recently The Day played support shows for acts like Oh Wonder, Oscar and the Wolf, Turnover and Kate Tempest.

The Day have released two EPs by themselves, were constantly on the road and have formulated their own version of melancholic pop music. May it be the distances both have to bridge again and again, the permanent view into the remoteness (and out of the window), all that time to ponder: The music by The Day is intimate without being intruding and speaks with an inner calmness.

THE DAY is about to release its full-length debut album „Midnight Parade“ in fall 2018. After the release of their understatement hit „Grow“ last year, and „Leave The Dark“ – the playful dream pop cover version of label mates Yeah But No, the two offer a first glimpse now and reveal a much more churning and overflowing facet of their music with their latest offering „Yet To Come“.
