Dreamend, the project of Ryan Graveface, have embarked on a large tour of the US, but they've just released a new single from their upcoming album today on The Big Takeover. The song, "A Year And A Day" is an example of the balance of genre mixing that Dreamend has become as a project. The track is vocal centric, with lush and somewhat spacey synthesizer sounds that make you feel like you're floating in space. As the track progresses and the drums kick in, you get more of a shoegaze vibe. Take a listen below or over at The Big Takeover and then go pre-order this new album from the Graveface Records shop.
