From the first piano chords of this commercial, I was hooked. I love how the guy drifts between different historical periods to get “the original mojito.” The outfits are stunning! And, of course, the song really completes this ad.
The Beatles wannabes in the commercial aren’t the artists of this incredible track. It is “Daylight” by Matt & Kim. These Brooklyn musicians are new to me, but have been around the indie scene since 2004. “Daylight” is from their second album, Grand, which came out in January. The album is named for Grand Street, where they live. The entire album definitely feels like Brooklyn. I highly recommend it. I’ve heard their live concerts are truly something to experience. They like the festival scene and definitely bring the energy necessary for a festival show. They sound like such a good time, I’m considering dropping $100 to check them out in Street Scene in San Diego.
