On Friday, Wild Arrows released their new album Dreamlike Dream, and today, the band is premiering the new video for the title track with Treble. Directed by Jean Sweep, the clip is a colorful and moody piece that features lots of glittery, metallic backdrops and closeups of hands caressing potted plants and rinsing in water. The song itself is utterly gorgeous, recalling vintage Mazzy Star and Slowdive. It’s as dreamlike as dream-pop gets.
“‘Dreamlike Dream’ is the song we always wanted to write,” says Wild Arrows’ Mike Law. “It’s loud when it should be loud, quiet when it should be quiet, but most importantly, it’s a hurricane when it should just be a tornado. It’s all dichotomy, mercifully bi-polar so finally we don’t have to pretend otherwise.”
