"Swedish indie pop duo Dream Lake deliver an ethereal and haunting soundscape with the music and visuals for their track “Runaway”. The give us a nice dose of magic, energy and a certain unknown that lifts our spirits and fills us with something unique and needed. The talented pair set a combination of hypnotizing melodies and vocals that go hand in hand with the black and white aesthetics of the video creating something utterly mesmerizing. You can’t help but feel in tune with the lyrics as they take shape and you are reminded that life is in a constant movement and while the bad comes through, there are also new opportunities, experiences and people that leave a light inside of us. You are left filled with hope, joy and a will to search for those special moments that test you to explore your fears and come on top. So listen, enjoy and simply become a fan of a duo who is sure to deliver more hypnotizing and unique must listen gems."

"This song is the sound of a moonlit evening in the dead of winter. It is icy and crisp like the air in January, yet it sparkles like the moonlight dancing off the glacial sheen of the snow-covered tundra. Lidholm’s production and instrumentation are masterfully executed, creating the soundscape that makes us believe we are traversing across Lappland alone. Svärdstam’s ethereal voice, though, is our motivation to continue, for she is the one with whom we wish to runaway. Where will go does not matter. It could be Valhalla or further into the Arctic, but all that matters is that we find our final resting place."

Runaway i Musikguiden i P3.
Today is the premiere of our new single Runaway.
"Runaway has maybe the sharpest pop rush of anything they’ve released to date, a song that’s powerful and propulsive while retaining their floating atmospherics, and one that comes with a soaring chorus.
We want to share this live performance of Midnight Sun that we made together with our friends and live band. ☆☆☆

Bo Lidholm about the video:
“The music really brings out the feeling of those years at the
seaside, with the sun and the water that blends in to one. The joy of being young and
living life to its fullest. If I close my eyes I can still feel that seaside breeze. The
music brings memories to life."
The music video for Blueness Of The Night is now up on YouTube.
Filmed and produced by Hannah Nyström.
