The Lucid Dream


Artist: The Lucid Dream
Label: Holy are You? Recordings
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 30 March 2015

The Lucid Dream’s second album will be a welcome release for fans who loved the band's latest singles, ‘Moonstruck’ and ‘Unchained’, both which are on this LP.

‘Moonstruck’ earned the accolade of the fastest sell-out in Too Pure Singles Club history, selling out a month in advance of release, with both singles coinciding with sold-out UK dates.

Formed in Carlisle, Cumbria, in 2008, throughout 2010-2013 followed a string of sold-out 7”s, an EP and the debut album, Songs Of Lies and Deceit. If you've heard, and enjoyed 'Moonstruck' and 'Unchained' then you'll know what you're in for - most of the album is in a very similar vein.

'Unchained Dub' has a Gorillaz vibe to it, and for me was the album's highlight. There's a lot of noise that may not be to everyone's taste. 'You & I' has a guitar solo (?) that sounds not unlike someone scraping their fingernails down a blackboard.
