Chase your dreams.
These indie rockers live by this phrase. Their band name was inspired by Ernest Hemingway novel "The Old Man and The Sea" and the protagonist's ambitious spirit, moral intent, and reoccurring dreams. This vibrant passion and optimism is brilliantly reflected in His Dream of Lions music. Today they release another single from their EP Pseudo Star. You can preorder Pseudo Starhere. Along with His Dream of Lions, today Zoey G, Ezla, Micky James, Benny Mayne, Dylan Dunlap, Ciaran Lavery, Sub-Radio, and Darci all release new music.
His Dream of Lions | "Magic"
The band's lead singer gets us excited with this phrase about their upcoming album:
"Pseudo Star is about that feeling. It captures that feeling not only with the subject matter of the songs, but also in the tonal extremes the record sits in between. Pseudo Star is funny, yet serious. It can at times be epic, and other times intimate. We're playing fun rock music that has moments that sound really empowering. However the lyrics, and the sentiments in the songs don't portray a confident or powerful person. Instead I sound unsure, and a little self-deprecating. Despite all this though, the point of Pseudo Star isn't to encourage listeners to revel in self-doubt, or self-pity. It's about effort in the face of uncertainty. It's hard to know where you're heading. And maybe we will always feel like were at the halfway point. Always feel like a Pseudo Star...But Pseudo Stars still shine, and that's more than enough reason to press on."
Today they premiere "Magic" with Popdust. The track does in fact sound magical. The light vocal line, floaty percussion, and powerful hook will put you in a great mood. The band said this about their track:
We love Disney music, and you'll hear it in this song. To me there's an emotional clarity that Disney music has, and a very specific sense of longing that plays right along with the subject matter of this song (Wanting to be something more, to surpass expectation...) Additionally this song draws a lot of influence from artists like Phil Collins and Toto, specifically the Tarzan Soundtrack and Africa. We always wondered, "what would it be like if MCR wrote a Disney song?" This is our take on that on that thought experiment.
I love hearing their insight on the track because it makes perfect sense and I love even more that they wrote a song inspired by Disney music. Like Disney music, the song feels epic and up-lifting. You know that warm and fuzzy feeling you get after watching a Disney movie? I feel like you walk away from this song with the same feeling.
Best for: Cheering yourself up on a rainy day.
