Formed during an MSN conversation in 2008, Midnight Daydream are John Shortt (Vocals, Electric/Acoustic Guitar, Keyboards, Lyrics) and Noel Pearse (Lead Electric/Acoustic Guitar, Drums, Vocals). Originally just two friends who were still in the process of learning to play their instruments they tried their hands at song writing. The result of this was the demo version of "Cat in the Hay", a song that lacked structure despite having over two dozen guitar parts. Several months later the band met up again and recorded their first single "The Unicorn Song (More Than Horses with Horns)". The song became a modest hit on youtube gaining over 7000 views thus far. After the encouraging response to their first single, the band started recording on and off again over the next year. With John starting to experiment with keyboards and Noel starting to experiment with drums, the band went back to Cat in the Hay and gave it a new electronica sound and with that went on to record 11 more songs for the album, 9 of which made the final track listing.
