On his new album Daydreams & Endless Nights (due out June 16), two-time JUNO Award-nominated musician Justin Nozuka adds a bold new dimension to his spellbinding and introspective brand of alt-R&B. With its lushly textured collision of R&B, indie-folk and psychedelic pop, the album centers on the mesmerizing vocal presence he’s brought to the stage throughout his many years of international touring, in addition to showcasing the fearlessly vulnerable songwriting that’s earned him a passionate fanbase dating back to his 2007 full-length debut Holly (an LP created when he was just 16-years-old). In a departure from the folk-infused indie-pop of previous albums like You I Wind Land and Sea (a 2010 release that hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart) and 2018’s Run to Waters, Daydreams & Endless Nights also finds the Toronto-based artist leaning further into a more soulful sound beautifully suited to his captivating vocals and unguarded emotionality. Deeply informed by Nozuka’s recent struggle with insomnia, the result is an immersive and wildly experimental body of work that follows its own otherworldly logic, fully transporting the listener into a more expansive and elevated state of mind.
