After the release of their understatement hit „Grow“ last year THE DAY present „Leave The Dark“ - a playful dream pop cover version of label mates Yeah But No.

The Day are Laura Loeters from Utrecht/Netherlands and Hamburg based Gregor Sonnenberg. Since meeting at ArtEZ School of Music in Arnhem the two keep reconciling distances, differences and always new approaches and perspectives. What runs like a thread through all of this is the interest to take charge of things themselves, try out and grow on it together.

The two get to know Yeah But No at a concert in Berlin. Their song „Leave The Dark" is about the arousal after a break-up and the positive things after a hurtful change. "As I finally leave the dark, there's a cold hope calling me." In the moment of the biggest insecurity the protagonist finds a way out in a ritual. No unknown approach for THE DAY who are used to being constantly on the road and work together though from always changing places. They develop mutual routines that help them to be flexible.

The Day have released two EPs by themselves, were constantly on the road, supported Kate Tempest live and have formulated their own version of melancholic pop music. May it be the distances both have to bridge again and again, the permanent view into the remoteness (and out of the window), all that time to ponder: The music by The Day is intimate without being intruding and speaks with an inner calmness. At the moment The Day produce their debut album. In spring the first single „Yet To Come“ is out. The album is planned for October 2018.
