Weird Dreams | Artist Feature

Weird Dreams are an East London based guitar-pop outfit that plays, well, classic English guitar pop. Surprising? No, not really. Rad? You betcha. Being from an area of the city famous for its innovations in the dance and electronica scenes, the music of Weird Dreams couldn't be more at odds with the neighborhood's claims to fame. Equally as influenced by 60's psychedelia and the C86 sound of mid-eighties Britain, the group creates breezy, ebullient nuggets of otherworldly pop sure to vibrate your eardrums in delight.

The four piece psych-pop crew have been garnering quite a bit of attention here in the states, being chosen as UK tour support by indie-rock luminaries (Stephen Malkmus) and rising stars (The War on Drugs) alike. Awash in reverb, sugar-sweet vocal melodies, and catchy-as-hell guitar lines, it's no wonder why tracks like “666.66” and “Little Girl” have got the band some big time buzz.

“Little Girl,” one of the first tastes off their upcoming debut album, Choreography, is a lovely lilting little ditty destined to impress. With beautiful guitar work and delicate vocals drenched in lush swashes of effected goodness, Weird Dreams might just be everyone's favorite new dream-pop band.

Weird Dreams Choreography is due out April 2nd via Tough Love Records.
