‘Wake Me Up in My Dreams’ is the latest intimately glitchy feat of electronic indie released by up and coming artist and producer, Jacobi.e. The distorted jangle-pop guitars that ease you into his experimentally affable style could only be described as melodic quicksand.
There are some fairly obvious nods to the styles of the Weeknd and the Midnight, but with the LA-based artist’s lo-fi bedroom pop production style and their affinity for art-rock artists such as Radiohead, they’re able to deliver an engaging signature style which allows you drift through their subconscious.
Wake Me Up in My Dreams was inspired by the concept of idealism and our inability to accept the gritty nature of reality. Ironically, it’s viscerally ardent tracks like this that leave me with unrealistic romantic expectations.
Wake Me Up in My Dreams was released on February 21st. You can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.
