Check Out This Dream Version Ditty
Guitar rock is alive and well in Chicago, with several acts breaking out like Ne-Hi. But, I don’t think I’ve heard a band take the same approach that Dream Version is pushing through your speakers. The riffs are pretty jagged/angular, knifing their way through the mix while synthesizers fade in and out of the background. It almost gives the song a bounce or an added-step, elevating the group beyond your standard fare of modern indie heroes. It’s almost punk rock, but its definitely cool, so I’ll give it my meaningless seal of approval. Look for their sophomore LP, Fight Fair, on July 7th.
