Bristol post-punkers Sapphire Blues have returned with a stunning new single, “Daydream”.
After a successful 2020 which saw them garner praise from the likes of So Young Magazine, Hard of Hearing Music, and The Zine, Sapphire Blues are beginning 2021 with a bang.
“Daydream“, so say the band, is a song “inspired by a book not worth reading and the age-old story of being overworked and underpaid. Lyrically, the song was pieced together over a fair few years of struggling to make ends meet. It touches upon the ever-increasing prescription of anti-depressant drugs and how they serve to make you cold blooded in the face of menial work; making it all the more bearable, thus enslaving the human spirit.”
Being quite a personal song, getting it down on paper served as a source of catharsis for lead singer Sam Lance Jones. Sonically, the song correlates perfectly with the lyrics as it’s tense, agitated, and punchy.
