Sloan Struble has a new-found confidence on stage, which brought vibrancy and energy to the tour of his most recent album, People In Motion.
When Dayglow made his tour stop in Ohio, the crowd brimmed with excitement before the band's lead singer, Sloan Struble, made his way to the stage. The second the lights dimmed and Sloan appeared in front of the crowd, you could just tell that this would be a memorable night. From the rumblings of the audience cheering and the revving of engines from the band, Dayglow knows how to pump up a crowd and get them ready to dance the night away.
Towards the end of 2017, Texas-native Sloan Struble founded the solo indie pop project he titled "Dayglow." Although he was the only member of the band, Sloan never considered himself a solo artist. Instead, he's always spoken about his creation as a band in the same fashion as Tame Impala does.
Sloan popped onto the scene almost overnight with his debut single "Can I Call You Tonight?" off his debut album Fuzzybrain. The song went Platinum in 2020, and has since racked in more than 419 million streams on Spotify. Now onto his junior album, People In Motion, released on October of this year, Sloan is still writing and producing all of the tracks himself. Solely in the driver's seat, Sloan has crafted the perfect album to dance and sing along to. People In Motion is all about discovering what you love and shouting it out loud. Created with the intention of being performed live, People In Motion brings the vibrancy and charm of the first two Dayglow albums to a whole new level.
For the last MUD cover of the year, we caught up with Dayglow to discuss his latest album, "People In Motion," and the North American tour he just wrapped up.
When you think of People In Motion in an overall sense, do you view it as one overarching story or more of a patchwork of individual moments with common themes?
Sloan: I think it all depends on context. I think the album is very cohesive in its own way. Coming off the trail of Harmony House, Harmony House was so narrative-focused where I could see People In Motion, feeling a little bit more scattered, but it's definitely still cohesive
