Weird Dreams – ‘Heaven’s Hounds’


London-based Weird Dreams have existed in numerous forms over the past few years. Once a two-piece, a quartet and now the fully-fledged solo project of Doran Edwards, is set for a return with a new album, Luxury Alone.

Due out in June, the record is billed as a “collection of songs made over a four-year period of uncertain times in different rooms in various homes.” Due out in June, Luxury Alone is preceded by lead single ‘Heaven’s Hounds’, and oh my, what a return it is. A dreamy five-minute melodious marvel, it is a slow and steady builder, spliced with stellar synth, sizzling guitars and atmospheric sounds, topped off with Edwards’ alluring vocals. So, so good.

Weird Dreams’ new LP Luxury Alone (and follow up to the 2012 album Choreography), shall be with us in June,but before all that, the utterly amazing single ‘Heaven’s Hounds’, is out now via Tough Love. Check it below:
