For four years, we heard nothing from Weird Dreams. Then, at the beginning of this month, to the surprise of us all, they reappeared with one song, “The Ladder.” It’s an understated comeback –with its soft drone, twinkling piano, and Doran Edwards’ nostalgic vocals, it’s easy to under how it was inspired by the “the reflections of water on a swimming pool ceiling at night.”
We’ll have to wait a little longer for another album, but the band has promised that there will be more music to come. They’re playing The Waiting Room on Monday 7 March, so at least we know they aren’t going to dissapear for another couple of years anytime soon.
