The first trailer for the Broken Social Scene-scored, Sonic Youth-referencing film Daydream Nation dropped today as the upcoming world premiere of director Mike Goldbach’s feature directorial debut at the Toronto International Film Festival was announced. Boasting a title taken from a classic Sonic Youth record, a character named Thurston, and new compositions from BSS, I had a feeling this flick might be a musical treat (the next Scott Pilgrim, if you will). Well, the fine song selections for this trailer certainly offer more hope to that end.
Featured in the trailer for the Kat Dennings-starring drama are Beach House’s Teen Dream single “Walk in the Park” and a truly amazing cover of Buffalo Springfield’s Neil Young-penned song “Expecting to Fly” by Metric/BSS’ Emily Haines. Watch the trailer below alongside full videos of both songs that were all-too-briefly teased in the clip:
Beach House – “Walk in the Park”
Emily Haines – “Expecting to Fly” (Buffalo Springfield Cover)
