My Baby – a dream i dream | Fantasy with a side of Alt-Rock
a dream i dream is the latest track from the band My Baby. This 2012-established alternative music band is delivering what they are known for. With a dreamy, 80’s feel and some synth in the mix, the indie project propels alt-rock into a niche space. The vocalist’s deep, soft voice is wonderfully complementary to the guitar and drums that are the core of the song.
My Baby is an Amsterdam-based music trio with members from different parts of the world – Denmark and New Zealand. Combined with their love for making rock-inspired alternate dance music, this diversity only works to unite the band. Further, the three members of the band are Cato van Dijck – the lead singer, alongside her brother Joost van Dijck, and Daniel ‘Da Freez’ Johnston.
a dream i dream certainly nods to the culture of Amsterdam with its light psychedelic feel, and the gently composed instrument arrangement. The verses are where the verbal content shines, the singer persuades you that her reality is only just a dream. And by extension, so is this song. The beats build up to the chorus, offering a conventional drop before it starts. In that way, a dream i dream is a fantasy expressed in a captivating musical format.
