After a year in which they fulfilled several landmark ambitions, INHEAVEN today share their brand new track ‘Sweet Dreams Baby’ – their first new material since their critically acclaimed debut album was released last summer.
‘Sweet Dreams Baby’ is an anthem for those who are hoping for better things to come in 2018. “Ever wish you were someone else? Every wish you were somewhere else?” begins frontman James Taylor, expressing desires that many will identify with. Subsequently joined on vocal harmonies by Chloe Little, the duo’s lyrics remind people not to lose sight of their aspirations.
Sonically, ‘Sweet Dreams Baby’ echoes a succession of timeless American influences – from the insistent percussion of the great 60s girl groups to Springsteen’s yearning and the widescreen hooks of Kings of Leon. The track was produced by INHEAVEN’s regular collaborator Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Pixies, The Amazons).
The accompanying visual for the track is suitably dreamlike. It flickers between an exuberant band performance, sepia-tinged close-ups and intimate shots of Taylor’s vocal delivery.
INHEAVEN followed their debut album with the release of the ‘Acoustic’ EP. It featured their take on Ride’s 1990 shoegaze classic ‘Vapour Trail’ which prompted Vanyaland to comment that it’s “exciting when a new band filters it through their own musical lens.”
