Days Dreamt marks a triumphant debut anthology for Burr Island, showcasing their ability to blend intricate storytelling with rich, evocative soundscapes that linger long after the music fades.

Burr Island shared: “We are very excited to offer this to the world. A debut record feels like a bit of a landmark and it feels like we squeezed every inch of our creativity into making it. This album is born out of a decade of friendship, it highlights our love for the natural world, includes an existential questioning and a long for the divine, and rejoices in the beauty of friendship and a gratitude for the lives we’ve led so far. We’d also like to thank everyone who made this possible, particularly the wonderful musicians who all added so much to the record, to Julian Lowe, our mastering engineer, and most of all, to our producer, Steve Cradock, and his wife Sally, who have worked tirelessly, taking on this project as if it was their own. We’ll be forever grateful for your boundless support and generosity.”
