Premiere: Tessera Skies – Dreaming/Sleeping

We’re glad to introduce you to something very special today. Newcastle-based alt-pop three-piece Tessera Skies have shared with us Dreaming/Sleeping, the b-side of their well-received single Out Of Sight. Built around smooth piano chords, the song unfolds soon towards a psychedelic experience made of hazed guitars and choked vocals, up to fading away into an ethereal horizon.

Here’s some words from the band: “Dreaming/Sleeping is a paranoid sleep-chant. If Out of Sight is about complacency and living in a digital daydream, then D/S is its very troubled cousin. It’s more of a single thought that in sleep and dreams you’re at your most exposed and the most true to yourself. For Dreaming/Sleeping, I kept the evasive, duck-and-cover mentality of politicians in mind to imagine a menacing, inner narrative that taunts and evaluates someone who has a lot of secrets.
