Our Song of the Day — “Down 4 U” — comes direct from Madrid, home to indie pop extraordinaires Baywaves. The band discussed the hypnotic track in an extended statement:

“This song was recorded during the same sessions as our previous single ‘Gliss.’ It was a great studio experience as each song asked for a completely different approach; while ‘Gliss’ was more like a punchy, live show-oriented song, ‘Down 4 U’ is a mellow, yachty pop love song.

“We spent more time geeking with vintage synths and keys, perfecting the vocal effects and working on the arrangements with Hans Krüger at his studio, with Jarvis Taveniere then giving it the perfect mix between ethereality and groove. We are really excited as its release marks the beginning of a European/UK tour and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
