Writing began for the Space Fight album Do You Dream In The Daylight around the start of the pandemic, when the members of Space Fight found themselves in lockdown. What started with a few files being shared from New Jersey to Japan between vocalist/keyboardist/bassist Spen Miles and guitarist Tom Welch, soon became over 20 demos by the end of 2020. A lot of the material was influenced by the state of the world at that time, and the fact that both men (or really their wives) were bringing babies into that turbulent world.
Selecting the best few of the 20-plus demos to move forward with, they brought in some friends – notably drummer Kenny Bernard of Ra Ra Riot, and producer/mixer Andrew Maury, who has worked with Lizzo, Shawn Mendes, Post Malone, Penguin Prison (a Space Fight favorite), and so many other artists. Spen and Tom continued to write through 2021 and early 2022, adding a few more tracks to complete the album.
Space Fight will be playing Mercury Lounge in NYC on June 22.
