All Our Born Days is the seventh album release from The Daydream Club in 11 years. Made a decade after forming, All Our Born Days draws upon the lifespan of the band to date. Having formed in 2010 a lot has happened in global and personal events. Lyrically Adam & Paula explore what they have witnessed and experienced, the good and the bad. Musically it's a culmination of all of the duos sounds over the years coming together in one album, combining influences from alternative, ambient, electronic, folk, classical crossover, soul, dub and trip-hop.
As with all of The Daydream Club’s releases they have personally created every aspect of the album from writing, recording, producing, mixing and mastering to the artwork, photos and music videos… there’s no big team between audience and artist, just two people creating art.

Ocean & the Moon is the first in a series of singles that The Daydream Club have planned this year leading up to an album release titled All Our Born Days. During the recent trying times for everyone around the world, one positive that comes out of the chaos is the spotlight it shines on the people you care about and who you couldn’t imagine living without.
The duo wrote the heartwarming song as an open love letter to each other, “You were meant to be my home, Like a force that can’t be known, Like the ocean & the moon, I’m connected to you.” The sound blends dream-like ambient atmospherics with a summery groove and lush harmonies throughout.
You’ve Got It Wrong is the second in a series of singles leading up to an album release titled All Our Born Days. This song is the polar opposite of the positive vibes from Ocean & the Moon, written several years ago after The Daydream Club experienced front line displays of toxic human behaviour and it left them feeling vulnerable and enraged.
Being level headed people they decided to move past it and shelved the song but over the years to follow it seemed relevant to so many events occurring around the world and so it was time to release it. The music features an air of restrained power and tension with bursts of mass harmonies, trembling high tones and a steady electric guitar laying down the anchor.
One thing we all share in this universe is finality. Living through a global pandemic can make you acutely aware of this reality. With Endgame, The Daydream Club raise questions about living well and the kind of legacy we leave behind “Have I lived as if I’m on stage, recurring loops on different days?” The song is a journey, like passing through stages of grief
