Andrew, Todd, and Declan formed DAYTRIP in 2017 for no other purpose than to thoughtfully craft songs that they all could love, despite their vastly different musical backgrounds. What started as an odd meshing of Andrew and Declan’s heavy rock background with Todd’s love for folk and indie music soon became what San Diego Citybeat’s Seth Comb’s dubbed a California sound – jangly power pop with melodic vocal parts and a dynamic, bouncing rhythm section.

Their self-titled debut EP was nominated for a San Diego Music Award for best pop. The band’s follow-up EP, Come Alive, will be released in Spring 2019.
