Dazy (aka Richmond, VA-based James Goodson) has released a new single, “Forced Perspective,” via Lame-O Records. Recorded at home by Goodson and co-produced with Ryan Hemsworth (who also mixed the song), “Forced Perspective” feels like a mixtape of your favourite late ‘90s/early ‘00s alternative radio hits–all coalesced into one irresistible track.

The single follows Dazy’s acclaimed 2022 debut album, OUTOFBODY, and 2023 EP, OTHERBODY, and continues to highlight Goodson’s innate knack for making nostalgic sounds feel fresh again. Anchored by a big layered beat, an elastic bass line, and an earworm chorus, “Forced Perspective” signals an evolution in Dazy’s sound while remaining ever-catchy.

After a lengthy U.S. tour supporting Snail Mail and Water From Your Eyes last spring, Dazy will head back out on the road early next month for a run of shows in the U.S. and Canada with Angel Du$t in November and December. They’ll also open for Screaming Females on two dates in upstate New York, in addition to several headline shows. A current itinerary is below.
