Delicate acoustic finger-style introduces the intimate and deeply moving new lullaby from The Duke Western.
Inspiring to its core, and somewhat unlike one might expect for the artist name, In Our Dream is a beautifully poetic pop ballad, which stands tall on the strength of its emotional conviction and finely-crafted, subtle yet striking design.
Making fine use of short lines combining imagery and unity, directly addressing a significant other – something that hits with all the more impact when witnessed alongside the accompanying father-son visuals – In Our Dream proves increasingly blissful, even heartbreakingly beautiful as it progresses.
Simple in set-up and accessible in lyric, In Our Dream feels incredibly personal and honest, yet still manages to connect for its vagueness and how easily it can be made the ‘our song’ for any and all listeners.
The voice is welcoming, genuine, humble, and highlights the evolving passion and melodic journey with faultless emotion and precision combined. Things build and build, yet repeatedly resolve for that lingering, almost musical-theatre-like delivery of the question; “Won’t you come with me tonight, in our dream?”
Gorgeous, and all the more impressive and enjoyable with each revisit.
