Go Dream is a place of dense detail and eclectic surprises. Pop sounds deconstructed and reassigned to a new place. Full of shifting moods, earworm melodies, restless arrangements and dark humour. Running through its core is a heartfelt take on a theme of ambition, fame, success & failure. “It slowly dawned on me that people are weird. Some of them are totally arrogant and selfish and driven by things which repel me. And in that kinda misanthropic mindset I found a lot to write about.”
Each song reveals more of the story; Week Of Warmth recounts the tale of ill-fated 70s power-pop band Badfinger from their money-grabbing manager's perspective. Ten Dollar Cocktails and Patient Pilot both allude to an air-rage incident of the neo-classical heavy metal guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen. Fans of sitcom ‘Seinfeld’ might relate to Summer Of George, and anyone who has found themselves on a night out alone could sympathise with Own Night Out… And, of course, there's the ever present sound of the sea.
Five years ago Lukas relocated from his hometown of Leeds, UK, to the thriving hub of Berlin. Those five years mark a dramatic shift musically and personally. Tastes developing and attitudes changing. A personal message was forming. One which required honing down and carefully constructing, as only one man alone in his home studio can do.
