‘Daytripping’ is the second single from Dunedin/Melbourne experimental darkwave duo Ov Pain’s (Tim Player and Renee Barrance) upcoming sophomore album The Churning Blue of Noon (out August 2021 on It Records) . The song is an incantation riding on a rising wave of drone synth and insistent drums. Mixing the Coldwave aesthetic of their older work with a shoegaze/ drone psychedelia.

“Daytripping is probably the most straightforward song we'd written for a while. If my memory serves me correctly I think we wrote everything, save the vocal-lyrics, on the spot. It just came out more or less fully formed. I think we were both revved up about trying to write a little banger that could sit beside G.A.M.S. or Mars or This Heat's 'Repeat'. Starting with a snare-less rock beat we add layer after layer. Renee's vocals are at some kind of career best here. Similarly, Renee's synth work (though it can be and is a lot freer elsewhere) renders the post-punk image vivid and complete. I like playing this song because it was an experiment to make a thing out of percussion beyond simply a timekeeping instrument while at the same time keeping some tight timing. Being quite an unnatural drummer this was a fair test of those relevant skills.” Tim
