Music by Bergman: Dreamer Boy

Having already spent time on the road with scene-leaders Clairo and Omar Apollo, Nashville’s Dreamer Boy is making waves with his fun bops inspired by puppy dogs, romance and daydreams. It’s all very warm and reassuring, in a coming-of-age, friends-for-life, everyone-goes-through-stuff kinda way. Currently working on the follow-up to his 2018 debut album ‘Love, Nostalgia’, he’s an exciting prospect for the year ahead.

.The new single from Dreamer Boy, Crybaby, was inspired less by Johnny Cash or Dolly Parton and more by George HarrisonDavid Bowie, and a particularly life-changing day spent indulging in psychedelics.

Hit of the week: Omar Apollo ‘Ashamed’

Twenty-one-year-old revelation Omar Apollo just dropped his second single of 2019, following “Trouble” released in January. “Ashamed” showcases Omar’s songwriting and soul chops, thanks to a funky vamp featuring wah-wah guitar melodies and some Prince-meets-Parliament falsetto harmonies. The chorus is pure seduction, and will have you hooked.
