It took nearly breaking up for Vancouver-based, all-female, dream pop outfit FRANKIIE to find inspiration for their new album. The band released their second single “Dream Reader” from their forthcoming full-length release.
“Dream Reader” is a perfectly crafted piece of dream pop, with an organ that wavers in and out of tune, well placed guitar stings and ethereal vocals, and blissed out harmonies. The whole thing is set in a minor key and sounds like it is being delivered from another dimension.
Listen to “Dream Reader” below:
FRANKIIE had this to say about the inspiration for the song:
“I was struggling to keep believing in the importance of creating music and our ambitions as a group. These dreams of drowning, stranded horses, and flying janky planes kept coming. I looked a few up in a dream dictionary and found many of them were about new beginnings and an emotional rebirth. After writing this song, and finishing it off with the band, I was starting to feel a lot more inspired again. Whenever we create new music together, it seems to light me up again.”
“Dream Reader” follows the first single “Glory Me” from their upcoming debut album. Keep your eyes peeled here for information on a release date.
