With their new EP Stay The Night just over a week old, Tāmaki Makaurau’s four-piece indie daffodils are delighted to announce that they will be heading out on a national tour with fellow Aussie pals The Lazy Eyes.
With five dates across Aotearoa, this will be the first chance for fans to hear the brand new EP performed live in what promises to be a wild night of magical musicianship, big feelings, youthful abandon and fun. . If one needed a point of reference, the video for the title track Stay The Night is a good start.
Produced by Jol Mulholland, the Stay The Night EP has dynamic themes of growth and change within oneself and within relationships. With five songs, each track captures different stages of a relationship and how these evolve over time. Backed by all bNet Radio, Radio Hauraki, MTV and online trend setters such as SNIFFERS, Under The Radar and Coup de Main, Stay The Night is daffodils in full bloom, at their reflective best, driving their legions of fans.
Daffodils have spent the past two years patiently waiting to hit the road again. This series of shows in August will be their first tour of Aotearoa since 2020 and they can’t wait to cross New Zealand to perform live.
“We’re thrilled to finally be on tour and performing live for our fans across New Zealand. We’re really proud of our new EP and can’t wait to perform it live for all of you! See you there- low!- Daffodils.
Joining Daffodils on all five dates is Sydney four-piece The Lazy Eyes. After releasing their debut album Songbook in September 2021, this will be their first time in Aotearoa. The band first bonded in high school for the love of psychedelic rock, cutting their teeth on the streets of Sydney. Inspired by King Gizzard, Osees and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Songbook is a world unto itself, and like any good fantasy world, it respects its own logic. Colors are a little more vibrant; things move a little slower, but they might get excessively faster in the blink of an eye. Known for their magnetic live shows, The Lazy Eyes will play Byron Bay’s Splendor In The Grass and support The Strokes across Australia before jumping the ditch for their first set of New Zealand shows on the Stay The Night Tour.
With their last two headline shows in New Zealand selling out in advance, it’s no wonder Daffodils are in high demand. Fans are encouraged to enter quickly. These shows will sell out.
