Brisbane dark wave/psych band Dream Dali have premiered their new single “Wandering” and its accompanying music video.
The song is taken from their upcoming debut album ‘Letters From The Light‘, set to arrive on October 28. Get it here.
Renowned for their trance-inducing live performances, Dream Dali incorporate a holistic set of backdrop visuals, flashing white lights and noir-esque imagery which can be spotted in the accompanying art video for ‘Wandering’.
‘Wandering’ encompasses the feeling of being locked in a dark chasm of thoughts, but finding yourself working – picking the lock one pin at a time and pulling yourself out of its depths. Characterised by an illustrious beat and modulating synths, the track creates a modern darkwave spin on British 80s club music by bringing alternative-rock bite and psychedelic delirium.
Utilising hazy VHS-style filters and kaleidoscopic concepts, the trio convert their sonic art to the visual landscape.
Dream Dali’s Aldous Emerson provides insight into the inspirations for ‘Wandering’:
“I wanted to write a song floating the chords around the base line that was more energetic than past songs. Lyrically I wanted to explore how you can be in a dark place but still push through with perseverance, whilst also looking into what is contentment.”
