Brilliantly named Swedish band Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes release their debut album Sweetie on February 14th and will tour both Scandinavia and UK to coincide with it. On Friday (January 17th) they release their new single ‘Forever via Rama Lama Records, today we debut the track below.
Evocative and chiming ‘Forever’ pours forth with wonderous vocals and meticulously crafted guitar lines that shimmer and chime, before cascading with magical refrains that grab you by the heart. It’s the follow up to previous single ‘Change of heart’ their awesome dream pop epic that featured in my best tracks of 2019.
Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes on the album: “It feels impossible to not portray the future. The album is a concoction of stories from our lives – what it means to be young today, with the challenges and dreams we have ahead of us. The songs are collections and fragments of thoughts about our future, what we can, should and want to do. We have written simple and we have written challenging. And we have finally landed in a collection of songs that formed our album. Our first. Sweetie.”
The band – consisting of Siri Sjöberg, Tilde Hansen, Elias Mahfoud and Edvin Arleskär – formed in 2015. Debut single Desire was released early 2016 and was followed by three more singles 2016-17, all receiving attention from both Sweden’s biggest music sites and influential international sources all hailing their dynamic and dreamy indie pop that constantly have been developing during the band’s career.
The band made their festival debut at Umeå Open in 2017, a show which Swedish magazine HYMN hailed the show as “the festival’s most energetic”. Debut EP Four Waters with four brand new tracks was released on November 24th 2017.
In 2019, the quartet returned better than ever with the shimmering new tracks “Change of Heart” and “Moon” which is now followed by ‘Forever, all taken from Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes’ just announced debut album “Sweetie”.
Steve Buscemi’s Dreamy Eyes have really made a mark since 2016 and with a debut album and international tours in the pipeline it just seems to be the start.
