Dreams can be so complicated. What does it mean? Does it even have a meaning? Is this a premonition of some sorts or a Freudian subconscious thought reflex? I once had a dream that I worked with James Bond, but instead of being his wicked-cool sidekick, I was simply his secretary sorting through his expense claims. What the fuck is that meant to mean? Thankfully, Dream-Pop is a genre of glorious simplicity and this straightforwardness is no more prevalent than in the new song from Seapony.
Seapony is songwriter Danny Rowland, singer Jen Weidl, and bass player Ian Brewer. Danny and Ian grew up and made music together in Oklahoma. In 2001, they moved to Olympia, WA. In 2004, Danny visited Cincinnati, missed his flight home, and ended up staying in Ohio for four years; he met Jen during his Buckeye State sojourn. After a period of work and study in Lawrence, KS, the happy couple came west in 2010 and were reunited with Ian in Seattle. Seapony was born. The band shares a similar woozy, breezy quality as tour-mates The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.
Their debut album Go With Me will be released on May 31st this year courtesy of Hardly Art. You can stream new song from the album ‘Blue Star’ underneath:
