Earlier this month Dayglow was announced to play in the upcoming season for the iconic Austin City Limits TV program. Sloan Struble aka: Dayglow will join Brittany Howard, Leon Bridges, Jon Batiste and more. Recently, Dayglow, shared his third single off of his forthcoming release Harmony House, due out on May 21st via Struble’s imprint Very Nice Records in partnership with AWAL), “Woah Man.”
Sloan says of the track, “Woah Man” is one of my favorite songs I’ve written so far. I initially wrote it for a friend who was going through a hard time, but then later realized that I was really writing about myself. In the middle of so much change, growth, and responsibility, I found myself feeling a lot of pressure. After months of feeling like I had the world on my shoulders and that I was growing up too fast, I realized that in order to grow, you have to move on sometimes. You have to let some things go. And for me, what I needed to let go of was the feeling of being in control of everything. I had to let go of holding on (very meta, I know). I just remember finishing the song and feeling so much relief and clarity about who I am becoming. The song has continued to help me through so many different stages of growth in my life— I hope it does the same for you.”

Sloan Struble was born and raised in Texas, and wrote the first song he recorded for Harmony House, “Medicine,” while still in his dorm room. After Fuzzybrain, which he wrote mostly on guitar, he decided to write for piano. At 21, he’s now out of school, but as he did on his debut, he writes, produces, records, and mixes all of his music himself—in his bedroom, no less.
“I tried to compose these songs in a way that you could just sit down at a piano and play them,” he explains. “That’s the sign of a good song, when it can live on its own musically.”
