About Daydream Vacation…

A rural barn in Sweden may seem like an unlikely birthplace for the electronic dance anthems that fuel Daydream Vacation. However, it was in the fields of Scandinavia that Asya of Smoosh recorded vocal ideas, while Head Like a Kite mastermind, David Einmo, created the beats thousands of miles away in Seattle. Skyping the ideas back and forth over the Atlantic via the Internet, the duo crafted the electronic dance party that became Daydream Vacation, with Asya on vocals and David laying down the beats and acting as producer/mad scientist.
