With artistic inspirations ranging from dreampop to psychedelia to classic rock, Daylongsigh is the musical project of 22-year-old Chicago native Aaron Cruz. Cruz first broke onto the scene with their debut EP, “To Be Singled,” which was released in August 2020. The record finds Cruz’s impassioned vocals sitting comfortably between washy guitars and homespun 808s. The record’s second track “Clinger” proves to be a standout, with hints of the modern production stylings of Hippo Campus and Still Woozy.
2022 saw the release of “Homage,” a three-track EP that develops on these influences while continuing to hone artistic originality. The latest from Daylongsigh is the LP "Unchristian Thoughts," which dropped on June 14, 2023.
