Indie-pop act DEWR, consisting of songwriter Brian Dawer, is set to release his new EP Dream Pop Is Over on January 31st.
This release differs from his past works because the EP shies away from the regular indie-pop formula. While DEWR’s previous releases seem cluttered and unorganized, Dream Pop Is Over, is anything but.
This 5-song EP flows like a stream of consciousness giving Dewar the space to be honest.
Accompanied by swaying rhythms and dynamic changes, this EP is both unique and listenable. The opening track “Front Line” drops listeners into Dewar’s mind, and every song following continues this exploration. Through these 5 songs, listeners are exposed to Dewar’s inner turmoils as he comes to terms with the idea that you can’t have it all, and that life keeps moving forward.
The EP’s title feels like a play on words. While his other works fall victim to indie-pop tropes of being over digitally-enhanced, Dream Pop Is Over feels natural and organic.
Upgrade your leisurely roll into 2020 with the perfect soundtrack. Los Angeles-based quartet NO WIN‘s new track “Same” seems like it could do the trick. With a glittering soundscape, quirky instrumentals, and the attitude that “nothing’s changed,” this track is perfect to both calm your nerves, and boost a bit of confidence moving forward. It’s soothing in a way, and we’re thrilled to have our ears on it.
