Posted by TwirlyHatMatt on July 28, 2015
The duo Take A Daytrip (formerly Daytrip) have taken a small hiatus from their travels of the world. Perhaps they were homesick, perhaps they were tirelessly in the studio, but regardless, they are back.
Today, Take A Daytrip ventures out to the sunny shores of Los Angeles. Pulling inspiration from funk and dance music alike, Take A Daytrip create a unique sound spectrum of intense synths and powerful guitar.
Like most of their solo work to date, the song tells a story and through the twisted vocals and highs and lows of the song we can pull out emotion and meaning. Read what the song means to each of the members, and listen to “Calling” below.
“‘Calling’ was inspired by our time working on music in Los Angeles last fall. We started to discover that what we’d spent years doing for fun was beginning to make people beyond our friends and family take notice. Exciting opportunities, challenges, and distractions all presented themselves. We realized we’d have to sacrifice some things we love in order to turn our passion into a full time job.” – DenZ
“The track starts with the excitement and the feeling of purpose when you find your calling, but ends in the solace and recognition of what you’re forced to leave behind.” – Hugh Cosby
