Song of the week: Daydream Vacation’s ‘Clever Is Not My Best Excuse’

Our song of the week was an easy pick this week. It’s the new song/video “Clever Is Not My Best Excuse” from Seattle’s Daydream Vacation. The song is catchy and extremely danceable. Daydream Vacation is the duo of Dave from Head Like a Kite and Asya from Smoosh.

The combination of Dave’s excellent production and Asya’s beautiful voice is a huge win and after watching this video it’s clear these two are having a ton of fun.

I case you aren’t yet familiar, Daydream Vacation is the duo of Dave from Head Like a Kite and Asya from Smoosh. This is the debut video from their album Dare Seize the Fire which is set for a June 19th release. If you like what you see and want to be involved in the release of the record you are in luck.

Daydream Vacation recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to finish mixing the new record. There are some pretty sweet rewards involved for contributors. For more info on this and how to contribute click here. I’ve got my eye on that $150 pledge to have Dave come prepare dinner for a couple of friends and me.
