There’s a lot of disaffected youth making GarageBand albums in their bedrooms. But not many of them have racked up 22 million Spotify plays. Meet, if you haven’t already, 20-year old Austinite Sloan Struble, a.k.a. Dayglow. His album Fuzzybrain is already a year old, but it’s now is getting a wider re-release with two new songs rounding out the mix. Fuzzybrain is irredeemably catchy pop, which keeps the clutter at bay. Dayglow grew up in the Fort Worth suburb of Aledo, which he described as “football-crazed”. He wasn’t and started playing around with music when he was just ten years old. Lyrically, there’s a lot of teenage anxiety  – but Struble’s musical skills push everything towards the sunny side.
