Blending expansive indie instrumentation with infectiously catchy vocal lines and reflective lyricism, Vancouver three piece Gleneagle deliver what only can be described as an indie anthem on their new single ‘That Dream (Is Over)’.
Strummed acoustics and tight electric guitar lines dance over punching drums, subtle synth and grounding bass to create a thick and buoyant soundscape for the instantly impactful vocals. Huge, ultra-wide, possessing an element of expansive alt-rock, the vast nature of the instrumentation when coupled with the chorus’s infectious vocal line already sounds as through a whole stadium is singing it word for word.
Talking about the meaning behind the single, the band share: “Sometimes things just don’t work out. That Dream Is Over is about accepting that, and not only being ok with it, but being ok with letting the world around you know you’ve moved on. The song was written in about an hour long break between studio sessions, inspired by an emotional few weeks of what felt like the last time Gleneagle would ever play together. For me personally, the song is a way of letting go of the pressure of success, and instead being grateful for being able to do what you love, with those you love around you.”
