Jackson, MS-based pogo-pop outfit Dream Cult are pleased to announce the release of their latest single, “Breathe”. “Breathe is about keeping your composure during times of stress and the inner struggle that comes along with that,” explains guitarist and vocalist Hayden Boyd. “I also wanted to convey the importance of giving everything you’ve got to make a relationship work. We wanted the song to be upbeat and energetic but still have serious and relatable lyrics.” The band will release a series of singles leading to the release of their debut LP later this year.
On first listen Dream Cult is an instant classic. A staple in their hometown of Jackson, MS, their fun catchy pop blends a wide variety of our influences from the vibes of the 80’s to the raw sound of the 90’s. In 2012 Boyd enlisted brothers Cody and Travis Bass (drums and guitar respectively) to craft a sound reminiscent of their Beach Boys’ influences with a modern spin. They quickly expanded to include Salar Almakky (bass and vocals) and Justin Moreira (guitar, piano, vocals) for a fuller more realized sound. The result was a nostalgic but not retro, classic yet progressive, anthem-esque sound.
