“Daybreak” is Cody Simpson & the Tide’s latest single. An environmentalist and philanthropist, Cody recently penned an op-ed for Teen Vogue about the importance of environmental education. The song blends elements of rock, reggae, blues, and pop with Cody’s vocal prowess. “Daybreak” perfectly closes out the summer season with an infectious hit about how love can illuminate darkness.
“Daybreak” has catchy guitar lines; a driving drum beat and energetic singing. Simpson speaks about what the song means to him, “The reason behind the name was I wanted this body of work to be an audio replication of what the Tide is as an element of nature,” he leaves off. “During that one summer, I had so many revelatory experiences. I wanted to be an exemplar of the Tide’s flow. It was about taking people back to that primitive innocence and being able to appreciate that. Music is the best vehicle to do so.” Combine that intellectual charm and the pop-rock melodies and you get a hit for the end of summer!
