VIDEO PREMIERE: Daily J ‘Rocket’

From RNZ Music, 10:00 am on 12 August 2020

RNZ Music is proud to present the new single and video from indie rock group Daily J. 'Rocket' is their second release of 2020 and is from their upcoming debut album due out in October. 

Hailing from Blenheim, the Auckland-based Daily J have constructed their own unique sound, offering a blend of warm melodies, dynamic basslines and pop electronica.

The band of brothers consists of Jayden (vocals/guitar), Jesse (sax/keys), and Jonny Paul (bass) plus their buddies Rick Everard (drums) and Cody Wilcox (lead guitar).

In 2017 the band released their debut EP The Other Side and since then have put out a number of singles including 2019's ‘Black Lagoon' and ‘Left Me Like Summer’.

‘Rocket’ is described by the band as “an astronomical rescue mission. It’s about escaping the clasp of depression and coming to the self-realisation that you’re worth more than what you've been fed and told.”

The video was directed by Wellington filmmaker Josiah Watson.
