Indie Pop Trio DREAMERS Return With 'You Are Here' EP (Exclusive)
Back in 2014, we premiered the debut EP from a then-unsigned Brooklyn indie pop trio DREAMERS, describing them as "ready for the big leagues" and calling their single "Wolves" "a tight track that would sound at home on alternative radio in between Phoenix and Young the Giant."
Two years later, the group are ready for the mainstream, after signing a record deal with Fairfax Recordings last February and working with producer Kevin Augunas at Fairfax (formerly Sound City).
Today, they share their new, fully-polished EP You Are Here, premiering exclusively via Billboard one day early (out Feb. 5). Featuring first-hit "Wolves (You Got Me)" and their latest buzzy single "Drugs" ("a song about how attached we are to our devices," they share) the set dazzles with three unreleased monster cuts "Shooting Shadows," "Never Too Late To Dance," and "Come Down Slow."
"This was a dream come true for us, as [Fairfax] is the studio where some of our favorite artists recorded: Tom Petty, Neil Young, Nirvana, Rage Against the Machine, and so many others," guitarist/vocalist Nick Wold tells Billboard. "The last year and a half has been a surreal journey, from a self induced houselessness, living in a practice space in Brooklyn for 2 years, to circling the US four times in a small van, seeing countless cities and meeting incredible people everywhere we went. It gave us a new perspective as a band, and we finally left our comfort zone to embrace movement and change. 'You Are Here' is a blurred culmination of all our strange influences and varied experiences. I guess you could call it our dreams."
