San Francisco’s Midi Matilda specialize in straight-up pop gems, and damn, are they good at what they do. They’ve been giving away free music on their Bandcamp since their inception as a group, but it’s their latest release “Day Dreams” that’s most likely to earworm its way into your heart. An outrageously catchy, hyper-accessible piano backbeat, bubbly synths, plenty of huge drums, surprise horn interludes, Passion Pit-esque falsetto, and a fun, rewatchable stop-motion video – what more could you want out of an indie pop song? Nothing? We thought so. Watch and listen.
