An Observant Dreamer

by The Stars Above



I recently discovered my early sketch of this song (the first minute) in a folder with demos for the forthcoming album 2. I liked the riff and wanted to see if I could craft a song using just those parts which is why the second half of the song consists of the those instruments in reverse. I added a fresh coat of drums and the 2 synths that run throughout the track. Although it was written for album 2, it no longer fits the theme and aesthetic of the album (there aren't enough guitars haha) so I wanted to release it as a holiday surprise. Cheers and thanks for listening!
