Bio from Matt Berninger (El Vy, The National):

The lyrics of so many pop songs feel like they were chosen by a committee from the same stale bag of recycled thoughts. I never get this feeling with Baby Dayliner. He writes in an extraordinarily personal tone that I’ve never heard in pop music. He writes about the small vulnerable moments of life and nails the details. He goes on little narrative runs that put me right in the moment.

It’s almost like being inside his head while he thinks to himself — while pivots from a personal tone to an ornate one within the same song keeps me connected and on my toes.

Baby Dayliner’s live performances are as idiosyncratic as his records. Whenever I’ve seen him live he’s been alone on stage with nothing but a microphone singing to his recorded backing tracks; beats, synths, loops and layers of harmonizing backing vocals, all him. He pans these harmonies far away from each other in the stereo field creating moments when different versions of Baby Dayliner suddenly step into the room and join the party. It’s like he’s cloned himself and given them all different roles to play in his tiny personal pop opera.

And Baby Dayliner dances when he performs — minimal shuffles and struts that appear to have been strictly choreographed and rehearsed. It feels like I’ve been invited into someone’s tiny apartment just to watch them being themselves. Within minutes I feel welcome and at home. His charm and unselfconsciousness is contagious and before long my own social anxieties dissolve and I’m singing and dancing along. He’s not kidding when he says ‘You’ll forget about yourself.’ He likes to put little call and response moments in the middle of his songs like he’s teaching rally chants to freshman cheerleaders. ‘You say strange. I say dreamin’. Strange. Dreamin’. Strange. Dreamin’.’ At his shows people will start singing with him and answering his calls without ever having heard the songs before. I’ve never seen that happen with any other artist.

What I like most Baby Dayliner’s writing is that there’s rarely any meanness in his songs; no forced posturing or aggressiveness; and they are loaded with empathy. He sings about flawed and vane characters but with genuine understanding and kindness. The music is catchy, smart, and weird— something beautiful and odd, that only he does.

Baby Dayliner is something uncommon in pop music. He’s unique.

Track Name: Don't Ghost Me (feat. Blockhead)
Don’t ghost me off the map

I’m going out again
I’m steppin’ out again
I’m single again
I’m going out again

Things are not what they used to be
Things are not savory
Things are not for adults
they’re just for the kid side
the loony bin, Xanny bin, together

The loony bin stuff
Lord of the Flies

I’m going out again
(I don’t give a fuh, I don’t give a care)
I’m steppin’ out again
I’m single again
I’m going out again

This dating app is gonna put my heart right on the map

Lord of the Flies

I’m going out again
(I don’t give a fuh, I don’t give a care)
I’m steppin’ out again
I’m single again
I’m steppin’ out again
I’m going out again

Don’t ghost me off the map
Track Name: The Triumph of Sarah's Past
There she goes
all around the way
chasing dragons
it's nothing strange
She'll never catch ‘em
she'll never catch ‘em

I've seen it before
time and again
the desperation
swingin’ at the fence
But you know I need her
you know I need her


The triumph of Sarah's Past
Lord knows it cannot last
She's trying to reconnect
to victories once expressed

Pimps and whores
princesses and priests
these are the people
whom she entreats
to give her meaning
to give her feeling

Yeah in her life
she's seen the worst
Crossbones Style
is well rehearsed
She's got the spirit
Can't break her spirit

The triumph of Sarah's Past
Lord knows it cannot last
She's trying to reconnect
to victories once expressed

You say strange, I say dreamy
You say mad, I say saintly

Chasing dragons
She's all messed up
She's all screwed up
But she can't see it
no, she can't see it
I'm trying to help
any way I can
but when she looks
I'm a bad reflection

VIVA DENIAL, VIVA DENIAL
Track Name: You Push I'll Go (feat. Alex Sanchez)
Gonna walk around, gonna talk around
gonna walk around, gonna talk around
and see
say what

The bats have left the belfry
and the bellboy is looking for his wine

You Push I’ll Go

Gonna get a vodka soda, gonna get a vodka soda
Gonna get a vodka soda with a lime
with a lime

You Push I’ll Go

In the buildings there are bars
gonna walk right on inside
and order a drink

Gonna get a vodka soda, gonna get a vodka soda
Gonna get a vodka soda with a lime
with a lime

You Push I’ll Go

You feel good about yourself
‘cos you think this girl is looking at you
while you dance to the beat
She may or may not be looking at you
but that’s OK ‘cos you’re having a drink
and you’re feeling alright
and you’re kinda sober
even though you’re high
at the same time

Gonna walk right to this girl
and give her my number
and maybe she’ll call me back
and maybe she won’t

Maybe I’ll call him back
Maybe she’ll call me back

You Push I’ll Go

Then you look toward the subway
and you go on home
and you’re glad that you have a home

Layin’ in your bed
you think in your head
if this is life it ain’t so bad

You Push I’ll Go
Track Name: All Parties Are Over
All parties are over now
the girls are all sorted out
it’s a fact that you disavow
There’s no one left for you to pull
inside of this dead social
so it’s time for you to blow

How young, how fly
expectations are the killers
and impatience is the victor

How long must I
wait around until you need me?
See, my eyes are staring cheaply

Technology-
it’s science for the better
so come on let’s get together

Real life, real love-
they’re illusions of the age

All parties are over now
the girls are all sorted out
it’s a fact that you disavow
There’s no one left for you to pull
inside of this dead social
so it’s time for you to blow

Modern times, technology
and real life, and quality
there’s a disconnect, a disparity
a bridge to cross
unfortunately
