In a cross between reality and dream you’ll find the atmospheric, stargazing music of the Stockholm-based duo Dream Lake. The pair consists of Isabella Svärdstam and Niklas Willar Lidholm, who take the reveries further than ever before in their new, tantalising single ‘Midnight Dream’ – an evocative ode to a magical summer romance.
With reverb-filled guitar, soothing vocals and glistening, raindrop-like synths, Dream Lake creates a parallel universe that consumes the worries of everyday life immediately. In their distinctively melodious and melancholic soundscape, they paint a breath-taking picture of a couple and their effort to rekindle an unforgettable relationship. The two tender voices are fused together in a longing declaration of love, describing the essence of the song with the words: ”We were young, we were one in the midnight sun”.
Dream Lake released their self-titled debut EP back in 2013 and though there’s currently no word of upcoming releases, ‘Midnight Sun’ certainly proves that they’re as brilliant as ever, so we can hope, right?
