Dream pop project returns...

Weird Dreams is a name Clash hasn't come across for a while.

The London project's debut album was a delight, but it has taken four years for follow up material to emerge.

Songwriter Doran Edwards has placed a new track online, and 'The Ladder' is a deeply atmospheric piece. Doran explains:

"It's been a long and short four years. Weird Dreams never stopped for me, it just became private. The songwriting was a near constant. There's more music to share soon, but starting with "The Ladder" now feels right, as it was the first song of real difference, and remained unfinished for a few years while I obsessed over an image that I began to pursue as sound on the last Weird Dreams song before this one ('House Of Secrets') - the reflections of water on a swimming pool ceiling at night. For reasons that are still unclear, this imagined image of light and water moved me in a desperate time, distracting from what felt like the rest of the world falling away."

Packed with shimmering beauty, blissful guitar effects and soothing vocals, you can check out 'The Ladder' below.

Weird Dreams presents Luxury Alone on March 7th at the Waiting Room, London.
