Dreamers are born on the ashes of Motive + share video for 'Wolves'

Dreamers are born on the ashes of Motive + share video for 'Wolves'

With a sound that merges pop nostalgia, art-rock and punk, Dreamers is the new project of Brooklyn songwriter Nick Wold - the main songwriting force of now defunct group Motive. The trio, in preparation of its debut album, has just released this video for first single 'Wolves,' a song that emerges via a clean, sharp-plucked guitar line, sharing a textural quality with fellow Brooklynites Beach Fossils and Diiv. Those similarities quickly disappear as their vocal style and lyrical storytelling approach leans more towards a more straight forward form of pop. A classic tale of boy pursues girl is played out from the hunters point of view. “Still I’ll chase you down – to the place you hide - couldn’t keep away” anchors the desperately heroic bridge. “You got me brain washed you got me so lost,” is how the dominant lyrical hook goes. “You got me undone – falling in love with you.” Coming to the ultimate conclusion that “if you lie down with wolves, you learn to howl.” The song captures that crazy in love feeling with an idealized image of someone that is equally exhilarating and gut-wrenchingly devastating. Additional sonic textures like synths in place of guitars during the swirling, vocal enhanced bridge, effectively serve the big dramatic conclusion. Dreamers played their debut show at Pianos last night (08.05).   - Dave Cromwell
