Enter > daysormay:
The English phonetic of the French word “désormais,” meaning “from now on,” the 3-piece, consisting of twin brothers Carson and Nolan Bassett and Aidan Andrews, first formed in 6th grade. Now, 8 years later, they’ve hit a stride and have already released a debut EP, opened for Cold War Kids, Peach Pit, and Walk Off The Earth, and played festivals such as Bumbershoot, Reeperbahn, and The Great Escape.
While Tessa Violet was looking for openers for her 2019 headline tour, a fan of daysormay tweeted at Tessa to check out the band. So she did. And, she was hooked.
After bringing the band on tour and being blown away – full circle moment – Tessa brought the band to her label, T∆G Music, where she holds a creative development position, and they subsequently signed the band. daysormay will release their new EP this year and the first single, “Role Model (ft. Tessa Violet),” is out now.
…was shot in Vancouver. On zero sleep.
“We were like maniacs on that shoot day. We literally went straight from the studio at like 3am to shoot at dawn at 5am and were up for well over 24 hours. So much fun though to just be the four of us and our camera op running around Vancouver to put together this music video.”
“…we’d all been awake for 24 hours or more. The night before the video shoot we were in the studio working on Tessa’s part all night and ended up only going home to grab camera gear between the studio and the shoot.”
