OUT NOW: Doggy Daycare "acid walk" [Digital Single]

Written in the haze of a blooming romance, “acid walk” is a paean to the power of love & research chemicals. Continuing the new legacy of Doggy Daycare with its dilated fuzz tones and spacious soundscapes, the song swims in the ethereal vibes of its own unique blend of raucous shoegaze and pleasantly haunted psychedelia. Best enjoyed in a new environment with no cell service.

Doggy Daycare started as a bedroom coping mechanism by Adam Bastug. In the process of creating the first batch of songs, lead guitarist Joshua Sullivan, drummer Connor Simpson, and bassist Ethan Jenkins came along to contribute different parts. That solitary project then bloomed into something new. Their signature blend of southern shoegaze, 90s angular indie rock, and unexpected humor quickly established the band as torchbearers of melodic, guitar-driven indie rock.
