The Daze formed initially as an outlet for Nick Conolly's songwriting but has since blossomed into a more collaborative effort. The band now revolves around the core members of Nick (vocals, guitars, piano & organ), the virtuosic Joel Bloom (lap steel & dobro), Claire Kuiper (vocals, guitar) and Dale 'G' Thomas (drums, vocals). The band recently released a 5 track EP 'Street Light Solace' featuring 4 new songs and a remix of an Olinda Daze track 'Itchy Feet' done by one-time member Paul Skelton. Currently recording the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut, expect to see and hear much more from this upcoming Melbourne band. - There is an unsigned Irish indie band of the same name, many of whose tracks feature in the chart (Car Crash In The Bedroom, Dragon In The Woodshed, Afraid of People, etc). - A 3-piece London based indie band is also named "The Daze" (Freddie Cowan - Guitar, Charlie Haddon - Bass Guitar & Vocals, Felix Matthews - Drums & Vocals).
