teen daze released his stunning, poignant album glacier late last year, snippets of which you’ve undoubtedly heard floating around in mixtapes on this site for quite some time now. after letting go of the excellent tour ep paradiso this past spring, the man behind teen daze took some much-deserved time off before trekking down to tiny telephone in san francisco this fall to record the follow-up to glacier. while details about that album still remain scarce, an entirely different project has come to fruition. teen daze has announced a european tour in january, and he’ll chart his course with a new ep in hand. a world away isn’t set to drop until january 13th – the day before his first show in helsinki – but teen daze has already shared its lead single. “reykjavik, january 2015” is an imagined timestamp, a six-minute odyssey that blends soft and warm synthesizers with muted drum programming while evoking an accurate sonic portrayal of northern europe in the dead of winter. while a world away isn’t correlated to the recording sessions he detailed earlier this fall, any new music from teen daze is always welcomed. take a listen to “reykjavik, january 2015” below, and click through the soundcloud link for a full list of european tour dates.
