The four piece band has much commercial success placing songs in films and TV shows, including Showtime’s Shameless, TNT’s Boston’s Finest, SYFY’s Being Human, to name only a few. Moreover, each band member has worked with musicians like, The War On Drugs, Foxes, Birdie, and Foster The People, again, to name a few. Yet, I am not “name-dropping” these associations to impress, but to show their interconnection. From musical acts to television, DreamVacation is strictly sought and associated with entertainment that aims for spiritual/sentimental experiences. They have worked with fellow artists’ that are known for their ability to reveal humanity’s many heartfelt layers. These connections seem destined when Silva explains the goal of DreamVacation’s music,
“We hope to inspire people to think and see things differently than they normally do. And maybe even remember things they thought they forgot. To feel more connected and sense that there is more kindness available than it seems.”
Track By Track Review:
Hidden Life: Silva sounds like the ghost of pain, and the guitar (played by Morgan Terrinoni) feels like it is weeping thoughtout the song. It pierces the drums’ (played by Noah Alexander) solid sense of emotional consistency by giving a sonic, tearful element to this song’s somber call for resilience. Moreover, the track evokes a sense of having an inner desert. You waltz through the dryness of your life, like an Old Western: waiting for adventure.
Letting In The Dead: I love this song. The drums and bass (played by Gerry Matthews) is playfully seductive, along with Silva’s charismatic, peculiar annunciations. Embracing life and death feels like a lighter experience thanks to this song ability to contrast a heavy subject with the funkiness of
rock n’ roll.
