Dream Lake is a Swedish dream pop duo from Stockholm formed by singer Isabella Svärdstam and multi-instrumentalist and music producer Niklas Willar Lidholm. Together they create soft and silky dream pop infused with signature Scandinavian breezy vocals, and a hint of melancholia.
In December 2013 the duo self released their first EP. It received great reviews and has been described as "catchy pop driven tracks mixed with a floaty sound that seems like it came from above."
It was followed by the singles ”Let Us Stay In The Light” and ”World Of Dreams”, released on the Stockholm based record label 100 Songs.
Their single Midnight Sun was premiered at The Line Of Best Fit and has been added to BBC Radio 1 as well as Swedish radio P3.
The duo draws inspiration from acts like Beach House, Pure Bathing Culture, Coldplay, The Doors, Led Zeppelin and The Dream Academy.
” Try nestling this warm, timeless breath of dream-pop perfection
between “A Letter to Elise” by e Cure and Beach House’s
“Wishes” on a playlist and be carried away by springtime longing. ” – The Line Of Best Fit
” Svärdstam’s wistful vocals are effortless, ethereal and airy, gently
winding through heavenly synths and an uplifting piano melody.” –Ja Ja Ja music
” Isabella Svärdstam, the duo’s key vocalist, fit effortlessly with the
production – due to her angelic tone. ” – Youth And Hysteria
” Svärdstam’s vocals oat gently over Willar-Lidholm’s intoxicating
and intricately-produced instrumentals to create another kaleidoscopic
tapestry of ethereal electronica.” Chart Shaker
