Amor de Días - Alasdair MacLean, front man for UK group The Clientele, and Lupe Núñez-Fernández of indie-pop duo Pipas - have announced a North American tour with dream-pop duo Damon & Naomi in support of their debut album Street of the Love of Days.
Touring across the country this spring will be the first tour that the duo perform under the act Amor de Días (Spanish for "Love of Days"), but not the first time the two have shared the same stage. Lupe would often appear onstage at Clientele performances reciting the story book lyrics of the Clientele song "Losing Haringey."
With the help of nearby friend Louis Philippe, Damon & Naomi, Gary Olson (Ladybug Transistor), Danny Manners, and Howard Monk (whose played drums on several Clientele songs), Street of the Love of Days took form with intelligent arrangements, vocal harmonies, strings, recorders and bass. Be sure to catch Amor de Días in a town near you as they share their stories through beautiful chamber-pop and Spanish guitars.
Listen to “Bunhill Fields” from Street of the Love of Days and pre-order the album on CD or LP now in the Merge store.
