The Day – Where The Wild Things Are

Dutch-german duo THE DAY releases “Where The Wild Things Are”, the second single from their debut album “Midnight Parade” (to be released this winter).

“Where The Wild Things Are” is a lovestory about the escape of the ordinary and the adventures that lie ahead somewhere else. After the release of their understatement hit „Grow“ last year, and „Leave The Dark“ – the playful dream pop cover version of label mates Yeah But No, the two now present a more optimistic facet of their music.

Director’s Statement

The music by The Day always brings me in a certain state of nostalgia. Unlike listening to an old playlist, it does not throw me back to any particular period of my life. Instead, it triggers a longing without an object, the sensorial memory of a past mood taken out of context. This relates to an illusion of a future that never materialised, comparable to the colours of a vivid dream fading away with time. The video for ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ is a visual translation of this feeling. Its faceless figures are frozen in enigmatic landscapes, searching in vain for a key to open forgotten paradises.
