Dream pop couple Spectator sweep in a whirlwind of emotions for new track ‘A Dream of You’ taken from their sophomore album.

The husband and wife duo Megan Rooney and Jeffery Albert released ‘Charlie, Baby’ on April 12 which contains songs drawn from personal and societal experiences of loss. ‘A Dream of You’ follows on from their latest single ‘Weight‘.

The couple from St Louis, Missouri, break out their emotions through a vast layering of upbeat guitars and the unbolted feeling of living in the moment as it begins to fade away itself.

Meeting in 2006 in St. Louis, and after years of playing each other’s songs, they gradually blended their individual ideas to create a new sound.

Bright, glossy melodies pulse like a rush of blood, adrenaline in full gear. ‘A Dream of You’ echos subtle, raw vocals from the likes of Alvvays and SALES then has their trademark gritty guitars thrown into the mix.

The intricacies of the track are deep with noodling guitars bringing a dreamier feeling. The vocals have a vintage glaze layered over some scratchy effects.
