I was presented with a bunch of music this week, lots of new bands and amazing submissions. But, on this particular Monday, my mood is my mood and the band Dream Vacation finds a sweet spot in my heart.
Shut out the world and just crank it up. Yep, full throttle. This is a tune meant for good speakers or powerful headphones, and closed eyes. There are layers of instruments, whispers, and repetitive reminders that over distance and time, caring and compassion never end.
Dream Vacation-End Of Time
“End Of Time” is transcendent and a bit melancholy. The song is representative of the wonky space I live in right now. I find the world around me to be a little helpless, unchanging, and despite some dissatisfaction, I still care. I care deeply. The song is heartfelt and deep enough to dig into solidly.
Dream Vacation is Ray Silva on vocals and guitar, Noah Alexander on drums, Morgan Terrinoni on guitar, and Gerry Matthews is the bassist and backing vocals. The alternative shoegaze foursome is out of Los Angeles.
“We hope to inspire people to think and see things differently than they normally do. And maybe even remember things they thought they forgot. To feel more connected and sense that there is more kindness available than it seems.”
Nice inspiration for my Monday.
