For those in need of a glimmer of hope, or some supportive optimism, we present to you: Jack Wakeman & The Dreamstriders. Their brand new single ‘Visions’ is an apocalyptic new alternative pop track, driven by warm bass lines and rhythm brass samples. The band have created a grand and funky song that was written as a reaction to the yearning of a better life caused by social isolation, anxieties and uncertainty about the future.
The message behind ‘Visions’ is an important one; the need for societal change. Its upbeat intro does not represent the gloom of its message, which in turn makes it such an interesting track to listen to. “In a time of constant government failures we all yearn for better lives in the hopes that a brighter future is on the horizon even when the world is at its darkest, ‘Visions’ is a song of hope.”
It is the fast paced soundscape of Jack Wakeman & The Dreamstriders’ latest release that translates those feelings of hope and careful optimism, making it sound like an almost festive single. The single was recorded at Whitewood Studios in Liverpool by Danny Woodward (BC Camplight) and was mastered by Pete Maher (U2), and the two have clearly left their mark within the finishing touches of the single! With BC Camplight’s stamp of approval, there is only one thing left to do: give ‘Visions’ a listen.
