DREAMERS release video for "Drugs" + tour + play The Studio on 05.20

Over the past couple of months Brooklyn’s DREAMERS has been climbing our emerging artists charts, and we wonder if vocalists' Nick Wold's new haircut has anything to do with it. Single 'Wolves,' which propelled their career forward, dates back to 2014 although it feels like it was recorded in the 90’s after some kids felt inspired by Rod Daniel’s Teen Wolf and all of John Hughes’ movies but only had their parents old camcorder to work with. With new single 'Drugs' (streaming) the trio pushes the sonic envelope in more-epic-than-ever directions, matching it with a video that, again, heavily references image-capturing devices: this time the semi-DIY ones found in our smartphones, which - not coincidentally - are the form of "drug" the song is about. Currently on a month long US tour, the band will return to NYC with a show on May 20 at The Studio @ Webster Hall. Check out this 2014 Deli interview with Dreamers.

Dreamers play The Deli's CMJ Pop Stage on 10.25 + unveil video for "Waste My Night"

Dreamers' noisy guitars (especially the intro of single "Waste My Night," whose new video is streaming below) can't hide the band's melodic essence, which is one of the factors that led The Deli to book them for its upcoming CMJ Indie PopStage next Saturday 10.25 at Spike Hill. The Brooklyn pop rock trio is slated to release their debut EP on November 18.
