The members of Little Daylight chatted with us after performing last weekend at the Governors Ball in their home town, the Big Apple. We've been following these guys for a while and couldn't be more pumped for their success. Check out some of their brand new tracks below that you can find on their debut (!!!) LP Hello Memory coming out July 15 and check out the interview. All the love. -C
When did you realize that music was going to be a career for you?
Matt: Music is fickle, passionate, and full of surprises. You don't interview for it and you don't get ask your boss for a raise when you've put in a year of hard work. So it's more like a mission to the moon than a career. You build up to something huge. You get there finally. You get home. And the next morning you say to yourself: Cool, now let's take this ship to Mars.
Do you have a crazy fan story?
Matt: At Le Poisson Rouge in NYC I walked by the merch table and someone shouted "Matt!" and I looked up to see someone who I was fairly sure I didn't recognize. NYC is home though, so there are so many people we know at these shows I was like, shit, this is someone I've met and don't remember! So I'm staring at his face trying to figure out where we've met and he says. I'm Matt too! I'm a fan. And we have the same name. Turns out, we have the same name.
If someone was to write your biography- who would you want to write it and what would the title be?
Matt: I'm 100% not cool with someone writing my biography yet. I have a lot left to do. It'd be called BioDome.

How do you keep challenging yourself to keep making new and interesting music?
Matt: Sleep little, walk around a lot, love your friends and family, take advice exactly half the time.
What are your fondest music memories?
Eric: Playing with these 3 kids named Nikki, Matt, and Ernesto, and this band called Little Daylight, at Governor's Ball last weekend!
If you could spend the rest of your life in one place, where would it be?
Eric: Brooklyn, NY, absolutely. We have it all, even the beach! (And I could never live without excellent pizza in close vicinity.)
What place haven’t you been to yet, but that you really want to visit?
Nikki: The Amazon
