sure do love color. Not only is it in their band name, but their new video for "Dream Dream," which we're exclusively premiering right here today, is also flooded with color. Fun, cartoonish graphics flash on the screen over a peachy pink wall and plants. The Chicago-based band members are all donning retro sunglasses and simply having fun playing their instruments as the 70s-inspired psychedelic vibe takes lead of the song. Not only are they colorful visually, but it's a colorful song, with ferocious, vivid guitar hooks and infectious vocals. Also, the band might sound familiar - seven of their songs were featured in Shameless.
No big deal.
"'Dream Dream' lyrically is about heartbreak, more so reflecting the whirlwind of emotions that come along with trying to move on. Musically, we wanted this track to groove and have an uplifting vibe to counter the heaviness of the lyrics. In a similar manner as some classic blues and country tunes do," frontman Tommy Evans told Baeble.
"For the music video, we decided to keep it light hearted. We got together with some friends and rented out a photo studio and shot the video in a few hours. It was pretty fun coming up different shots with different props. Being the the title track to the album, we used our album cover, created by Camilo Medina, as inspiration for the art direction of the video. We wanted a mix of surreal and nostalgic shots to help represent not just this track but our record as a whole," he continued. "Dream Dream, another world created for distraction. So press play, watch the world change."
