Hailing from Carlisle and formed back in 2008, The Lucid Dream have been gaining acclaim in the North West of England and elsewhere, receiving comparisons to bands like Suicide and The Jesus And The Mary Chain along the way.
It’s far from baffling when one listens to the new single ‘Love in my Veins’ in particular. It is soaked in psychedelic blues, pounding drum rolls and reverb drenched drifting vocals.
The b-side is just as exciting. ‘Devil Ride Out’ is given a proper facelift from Richard Norris (The Grid, The Time and Space Machine and one half of Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve with Erol Alkan), adding a darker, energetic rasp to their dreamy drone rock.
These guys should be worth keeping an eye on. ‘Love In My Veins’ is out now.
