Long-term readers might recognise some of the voices in It Was All A Dream. It’s a new musical project from London based from multi-instrumentalists Amy Maskell and Sophie Lowe. They previously were part of Peluché but have reformed as a duo to merge together dreamy electronica and R&B. Their first song is “Red Roses” and it features lots of electric pianos and towards the end some absolutely beautiful vocal harmonies. It’s a real ride though because chunky beats are omnipresent, there’s a spoken rap part way through and some clarinets and samples popping up too.
Their debut EP “Never Forget You Are Free” is due out on the 14th of October. It comes after the duo stopped playing instruments after Peluché disbanded. Amy and Sophie found themselves in a creative drought and when considering what their musical futures would be during lockdown, Amy’s mum told them “Never Forget You Are Free” and that became their mantra to create by. As soon as lockdown was lifted, they both found the reunion let their creative juices flow and this is the result.
Enjoy the track “Red Roses” below, which is out now. For more info on It Was All A Dream, follow them on Instagram.
