Combing through rss feed organized blog posts is much like surveying the beach for lost jewelry. Much of the music is “free and legal”, but it takes time to listen to each song and find a track that is an actual treasure. “Dream City” by Free Energy perfectly fits this theme with beach-ready, summery fun.
This early offering from Philly-based band, Free Energy, is everything a June-August song should be, catchy-laid back-singable-fun. “Dream City” starts slow with hand claps and paced guitar work before transitioning to care-free lyrics that echo everything summer is about:
Hey we’re comin’ out
Breathe like whatever we dream about
And we’re moving thru the night cruisin’ across town
Lost in the endless sound
And the cities alright but the streets are all same
You know deep down you can find a better way
For some reason, I kept thinking of the night-time party scenes from Dazed and Confused. Don’t be afraid to listen to “Dream City” multiple times this Friday. I just did 6x in a row. Whoops.
