Copenhagen electronic-rock outfit Paul Wilkinson & THE STATION set the vibe and uplift beautifully, with their aptly-ethereal and melodically alluring new single Catch You Dreaming.
Feeling initially like a reimagined eighties classic, the track soon takes listeners on a refreshingly unexpected journey – through country-folk melodies, both soulful and raspy vocal layers, warming bass-work, and a fine balance between moments of high and low intensity.
Increasingly uplifting and defiantly near-euphoric as it progressively gathers momentum, Catch You Dreaming feels like an alternative dance-pop classic at the same time as a country-fusion contender. There’s character in the delivery, but also an immense degree of professionalism and skill.
Promising to be that multi-layered, emotive escapism the true music fan craves, and a memorable introduction to a contemplative, passionate and precise band of musicians, this release quite quickly makes itself known as one of the more genuine, heartfelt and provocatively thoughtful tracks of the season. Its embrace is of the calibre that swiftly prompts a re-listen once the music stops and silence ensues.
Wonderfully crafted – hopefully there’s plenty more to come.
