Video Premiere: Day Joy - "Go To Sleep, Mess"

Music  |  Video

Reigning from Orlando, Fla., the five-piece(often six-piece) band Day Joy has released the video for the single “Go To Sleep, Mess,” which shares the title with the band’s debut LP out Feb. 12.

Listed as one of our Top Florida Bands You Should Listen To Now, the band incorporates banjos and ukuleles with synthesizers and steady percussion to create their somewhat-psychedelic sound.

Directed by Michael Lawrence and Alex Amoling, the video illustrates the song’s heartbreaking lyrics about struggle and addiction through the two separate lives of a man and a young boy.
