Following on from our review of his debut EP release Forgotten Thoughts, Crack in the Road were delighted to be able to catch up with Dreams to get a few important questions answered. If you haven’t heard Forgotten Thoughts, then head over to iTunes to download the EP for a very modest amount.
Crack in the Road: How did Dreams come about?
The idea of Dreams born on October 2009. I came across Washed Out and Neon Indian, and that submersed electronic lo-fi caught me. I was thinking in performing my music as well. So I started to make some tunes influenced, most part, by Washed Out. The other stuff came after.
CitR: What would you cite as your main influences, both musically and otherwise?
Joy Division, New Order, Portishead, The Cure, Boards of Canada, Panda Bear, bad break ups, girls, day life situations….
CitR: Your music has been described as “hypnotizing thermal waves pulsating against soothing ocean washed pop”, how would you describe it in your own words?
I am so bad in that subject eheh. When I started to do this I was thinking, just, in electronic pop. I can give that work to the critics and fans.
CitR: What was the first record you can remember falling in love with?
Probably, The Cranberries – Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?
CitR: Where would you like to see Dreams in a years time?
That’s a hard question. I prefer to stick to the present. For the main future I want to make the album and then we’ll see eheh.
CitR: If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Hmm…I could have the power of thinking in something and then that stuff appears in front of me (priority to guitars and synths).
CitR: If you could record a duet with anyone (alive or dead), who would you choose?
Jack White, for sure!
