Weird Dreams, the nom de musique of London’s Doran Edwards, has shared his first new song in four long years. It is a fragile and delicate tune that is under pinned by gentle synths and a lilting vocal. The track is the first that Weird Dreams has released since the album Choreography was released in 2012 via Tough Love Records.
“It’s been a long and short four years. Weird Dreams never stopped for me, it just became private,” said Edwards.” The songwriting was a near constant. There’s more music to share soon, but starting with “The Ladder” now feels right, as it was the first song of real difference, and remained unfinished for a few years while I obsessed over an image that I began to pursue as sound on the last Weird Dreams song before this one (“House of Secrets”) – the reflections of water on a swimming pool ceiling at night. For reasons that are still unclear, this imagined image of light and water moved me in a desperate time, distracting from what felt like the rest of the world falling away.”
Weird Dreams presents Luxury Alone on 7th March 2016 at The Waiting Room, London.
