NEW SINGLE RELEASED – Friday 27th August 2021
A genre-hopping footstomper with a message!
‘Visions‘ effortlessly glides between genres and eras – it sounds like a song that you have heard before many years ago – but it’s simultaneously uncategorizable. To have created something this experimental and catchy is quite some feat. The chorus will be stuck in your head long after you’ve stopped listening to this debut single by Jack Wakeman & The Dreamstriders!
Jack delivers a breathy, dreamy vocal performance over the top of this 80’s tinged, disco-indie number. Every time I play this song, I can visualize Jack and his band playing live on Top Of The Pops in 1985! The interlude in the song is quite Beatlesesque, perhaps even a bit ‘proggy’. The bands instruments seem to have a lot of elasticity and bounce – it’s a song you can have a bit of a dance to, or footstomp to! It’s a party starter!
My best attempt at trying to describe what this song sounds like would be for you to imagine Crowded House and Culture Club getting together in the studio with The War On Drugs and Tame Impala. An eclectic creation from those studio sessions might sound something like ‘Visions’! Songs like this really don’t need ‘pigeon-holing though – they can just be enjoyed for what they are and this is a glorious romp through the decades that hops under, over and inbetween genres. “Visions’ is a bit of an oddity – but it’s definitely worth your listening time.
