I spoke to Doran Edwards, the front man of the London-based band Weird Dreams, a while ago for Glass Magazine. Sometimes referred to as psych-pop core, or melodious melancholics (I particularly like that, being inclined to melancholy myself) and also labelled, or stereotyped, as “jangly power pop” – journalists have always loved a snappy handle for ease of reference.
But I’m always wary of an off-hand, throwaway categorisation, no matter how much wit it’s served with. I think it’s hard to describe good things in a few words, pithy though they may be. It diminishes somehow. But, ahh, but that’s why we have literature
Sorry, I’ve drifted.
Weird Dreams are good.
