Kilmarnock’s Alternative/Emo/Pop husband and wife duo DreamKids have announced their self-titled debut EP set for release on Friday 2nd April 2021. The brand new music video for Only God Knows If My God Is Real out now!
Hailing from Kilmarnock Scotland, Alternative, Emo, Pop husband and wife duo DreamKids, launched their debut single, While I Die in February 2020. Featuring Dawn and Murray Baxter, who both previously performed and toured extensively with Twin Heart (2015-2019) and Mechanical Smile (2009-2014), like many musicians they had their plans, including dates across Scotland and support slots with Orchards and Microwave postponed when Covid-19 took hold of the world in March 2020.
Recorded at Chem 19 with Jamie Savage (Twilight Sad, King Creosote & Miaoux Miaoux) and mastered by Luis Bonilla and Mandy Parnell and Black Saloon Studios in London, the EP delivers a mixture of raw energy inspired in equal measures by 90’s grunge and 00’s emo, while consistently empowering an emotional subtlety. Lyrically, the EP relates to the painful truth of life, lost relationships, global crises and addiction.
Writing and rehearsing in their tiny studio, DreamKids continued to create music and when lockdown restrictions eased in the summer of 2020, they travelled the short distance to Chem19 Recording Studio to record and mix their debut five track, self-titled EP with Jamie Savage (Twilight Sad, King Creosote, Miaoux Miaoux). The EP was then mastered by Luis Bonilla and Mandy Parnell at Black Saloon Studios in London. The EP’s lead single, Mother, was released with an accompanying music video on 1st January 2021, with the EP set for release on Friday 2nd April 2021.
