Pale Dream’s latest release, “Something Tells Me,” is a heartfelt journey that harnesses the cinematic nostalgia of a coming-of-age movie.
From the moment the punchy drums kick in and the driving guitars take the stage, you’ll find yourself transported to a world where emotions run deep and youthful enthusiasm prevails.
Lead vocalist Trey Hoskins, delivers packs an emotive vocal performance within a track laden with glittery guitar melodies and washy cymbals. His voice carries a hopefulness for better outcomes between lovers starting fresh, the romantic sway of the instrumentation capturing the kind of charisma that convinces you to feel the same.
Sonically reminiscent of indie post-punk acts like The Smiths and The Cure, the song possesses that catchy, melodic quality that draws you in and refuses to let go. It’s the kind of tune that gets stuck in your head and makes you want to sing along, even if you’re not entirely sure of the lyrics.
Pale Dream, a self-identified “lame indie rock band,” hails from Salt Lake City, and their music embodies the vibrant energy of their local scene. Formed in 2018 by Trey Hoskins and Mari Ericksen, the band has since grown to include Michael Hockman, Braydon Buell, and Nate Harris.
Their dynamic lineup contributes to their genre-spanning sound, attracting a diverse local crowd, from outgoing indie lovers to quiet goth kids.
With their unique blend of ’80s and ’90s new wave, goth, and dreampop, Pale Dream has carved out their own distinct sound. Their shows are a sight to behold, featuring a full band with synths, drums, bass, guitars, and multiple vocalists.
Each member brings their own style, personality, and stage presence, perfectly complementing the “misfit wallflower” theme that permeates their music.
“Something Tells Me” is just a taste of what Pale Dream has in store for their fans. The band is working on their second LP, set to be released later this year, followed by an exciting tour.
With a few new singles up their sleeve, Pale Dream is on a mission to diversify their sound and cultivate a dedicated grassroots following.
Whether it’s gracing the stage of music festivals, concert venues, or dingy dive bars, Pale Dream is sure to leave a lasting impression.
Their ability to capture the essence of a bygone era while infusing it with their own youthful energy sets them apart in the indie rock scene.
